We went for the Chicken Fried Steak - which was a true handmade version and met the CFS test. However, they have a nice salad menu and it was really fresh and large portioned. I would stop here on every visit thru Dumas. Service was quick and fresh hot rolls are provided with the meal. Nice surprise on the road.

On my way from Colorado to Dallas, my buddies and I stopped in Dumas for the night and had dinner at the 287 Roadhouse Restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised. The steaks and sides were tasty; the service quick and friendly and the beer was cold. The filet had a wee bit too much grisle but the filet was very nice.... More

Had lunch while passing through on my way East, and was quite pleased with my meal and the good service I received. The menu is fairly extensive and the meal came quick and tasty. Beats fast food while on the road.

We arrived at 287 after a 9 & 1/2 hour trip on the way from Nacogdoches, TX to Breckenridge, CO - tired and hungry and needing to relax. Everything, from the pleasant décor to the well-prepared food (tasty sirloin tips with succulent grilled mushrooms for Susan, excellent char-grilled pork tenderloin for me), to the smiling attention of our server Aryana,...

We were there at a quiet time. It was Saturday a dinner time and there were about 6 people there. Food and service were good.

The restaurant was conveniently located across the roadway from our hotel. The restaurant was recommended by the hotel clerk. We were seated quickly and did not have to wait on service. Our server was nice and cheerful and made several recommendations. The food served is of the diner type. We settled for chicken fried steak. The dinner rolls were to... More
