Good food, and lots of it.

This is one of my favorites, I hate to tell others about how good it is. I wish they had a little more parking, and the lines were shorter.

If you're interested in good ol' southern breakfast this is the place to go. My family and I have been going to this restaurant for years now. We've never been disappointed. Don't be discouraged by the long line or wait time. They are pretty quick and very efficient.

Parking at Old West Cafe (OWC) can be a challenge, but only because the place is so popular. OWC is a breakfast-only cafe that's only open until 2pm. If you don't want to wait, try and go during off-times like mid-morning...real early or real late. But even if you do have to wait, it is sooooo worth it. The food... More

I like the Old West. I've been to the one in Sanger as well. Both possess the feeling like you are eating in someone's kitchen, where lively conversation, good service, and healthy portions are standard fare.

This place is a must go for breakfast, don't eat at the hotel, you will regret it! The menu is extensive, so bring your appetite. I had the bulldogger and it was fantastic came with three eggs and two sides and chicken fried steak with gravy. They have everything you can think of yogurt with fresh fruit and granola, grits...

By far the best country breakfast place in Denton and judging by the weekend lines if you arrive after 9am lots of folks agree with me. I usually get two eggs with the ham steak, hash browns and an English muffin. Never a bad meal, and super friendly service with fair prices. Worth a stop if you are breakfast hungry... More

The Old West is everything a good breakfast spot should be…It looks like a local dive and is managed like a very efficient chain. The food is excellent, and the service is as good as you will find anywhere..High Tech, with your order taken electronically on a Smartphone and the wait staff are all young and more importantly polite. Everything... More
