I usually go here for breakfast/brunch on the weekends, but if you do that just know going in that it will be very crowded. Excellent breakfast foods, large portions; also good lunch items. Not open for dinner. It is worth the wait; you won't leave here hungry.

We found this little gem through Trip Advisor and planned a trip to Denton to check it out. It was packed on a weekday morning and parking was a challenge, but once inside, the service was fast, the food was fabulous and the portions were huge.

Just plain excellent! Check it out! I have tried different combinations and I just love Old West. Did not want to review. I am afraid lines will get longer.

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 say one... 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.
