Great Food and resaonable Prices

We met our daughter here for lunch and had never been before. Everything we ordered was really good and will come back again. The only thing I would like to see is if they can not put so much pepper in their gravy, it was too much and over powdered the overall taste. Other than that, I cannot... read more

Title says it all. You will *not* go home hungry from this place. Huge pancakes, massive omelettes, and any breakfast side you could possibly want. The cinnamon multigrain pancake is my favorite, but they're all yummy. My hubby gets Pappy's Huevos- scrambled eggs, refried beans, and other fixings on top of a fried tostada shell. Prices are reasonable considering the... More

This is the best breakfast in town, hands down. Order a pancake...they are massive! I bring family here when they visit and they love it. I only wish they were open longer into the day. It is always crowded too, so plan on a wait. It's just that good!

So you want to show off the best your town has to offer when people come to visit. Old West is a must stop for breakfast. My family has just about eaten through the entire menu and have yet to not clean our plates. You can expect to wait for a table Friday - Sunday. The serving sizes are large.... More

Really good food, large (share or take-home) portions. Get there early or plan on waiting, but it's worth the wait.

So many specialties-but all good home-cooking meals. My husband thinks the MIGAS are best anywhere around!

Always busy. Excellent food. I really like their biscuits with sausage gravy. Depending on what time you arrive, you may have to wait to be seated. It's worth the wait!

Pardner, if you're hankerin' for a belt-bustin', lip lickin' breakfast, this is the place! Huge portons of melt-in-your-mouth pancakes, eggs fried to perfection and crispy bacon or sauaage will fill you till way past noon! Old West isn't open much past noon, so fill up while you can. Everything Is good here -- from French Toast to omelets. If you... More

If I have had a better breakfast I cannot remember when. My wife and I both had three egg omelets which were excellent. The breakfast also comes with two side orders which included biscuits, fruit, yogurt, etc. I will just say that the biscuits we superb. Finally, I will add that the service we received was second to none. If... More

We have gone here every time we visit my sister in Denton. If you leave here hungry you don’t like breakfast. When you have selections like the Trail Boss, French toast dipped in cinnamon crisp batter or the Cheyenne, a cinnamon roll dipped and grilled. You get tons of food for a great price. Yes, you might have to wait... More
