We had late breakfast on a Sunday. Everyone enjoyed their meal. A ribeye was slightly overcooked but was good. My Cowboy breakfast very good and will definitely make OST a stop traveling through Bandera.

We had breakfast at the OST. Service was very friendly & helpful. Prices were reasonable (about $5 for an adult breakfast) Ambience is pretty neat...kids enjoyed looking at all the pictures int he John Wayne room. The migas were good...but some freshly made flour tortillas would have made it excellent! (if they don't want to make their own maybe there's... More

It was a very nice local's place to eat. Place is over 100 years old and looks like it the way it is decorated inside.The staff is very helpful and attentive to my wife in a wheelchair. Food was good with large portions attractively priced

John Wayne and Matt Dillon eat in this place regularly along with every biker in Texas. The super burrito is the best in Texas and breakfasts are great. The buffet isn't bad if you like cafeteria food but the Mexican and PEPPER STEAK are out of this world! Try and Arky's Special if you want to die happy!

I have eaten several meals in the OST and have been happy with all of them. When in Bandera, it is a must stop.

We found this place on TripAdvisor. We were looking for some lunch before going on to one of the dude ranches in Bandera. The restaurant is very easy to find in the center of town. It's a real "local" place, which is exactly what we were looking for. I had grilled shrimp (which is also available fried) with a biscuit... More

My husband loves OST in Bandera -- me, not so much. He loves to go there on Saturdays when they usually have a Mexican Food Buffet. It's a cute place and everyone should go at least once. But, the food is just so-so and it's pretty expensive for what you get.

Had a great meal here on the way to the Frio River. Service was a bit slow because I think there was a miscommunication over which server had our table. No big deal though…everyone was friendly, which is my biggest thing. We weren't in a hurry. My husband and I split the chicken fried steak and it was probably the... More

We stopped for breakfast here and were nicely surprised. The biscuits with the biscuit and gravy were huge and very good. Gravy was very good too. The waitress was the best we had in town the whole trip. She got a 50% tip. Go there.

My wife and I have eaten here several times. The food and service are good. We have had breakfast. I have had the Chicken Fry and my wife has had the hamburger. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere fits the town. It is a dependable place to eat, but it is not something to plan your trip to the... More
