By the outside, you may not feel like stopping. You will be missing a nice local place. Honest food, honest prices and service with a smile. Some of the food needed the extra pop of the supplied salsa or hot sauce. This is not necessarily a bad thing to me.

I was traveling with my husband and two small children when we stopped here to eat. It is an old establishment and a bit run down but clean. We didn't expect too much from a highway restaurant but we were still disappointed. The food was extremely bland and not hot, the service was slow and unfriendly. We ordered chicken fried... More

Looks worn out, but the food,service and value were great. There are not many choices in Falfurrias and they all have pretty much the same menu. Burgers, some Mexican, and fried anything with some form of potato. We ate a 3 of the restaurants and this was by far the best one. The sweet tea was excellent as was the... More

Strickland is not on its last leg or faded. The outside is large and lengthy. You can't miss it. The inside has character and a decided Western atmosphere, if you like Roy Rogers. The service is top notch, the food is excellent and the prices reasonable. The menu is engthy and you will find something that will appeal to you.... More

The waitresses wear shirts that say "Strickly the Best" as well they should. I walked in not expecting much. The building looks like it is on its last leg so you can only imagine my surprise when I finished my food. I live in San Antonio where I have lots of restaurants to choose from. Let me tell you, this... More

I had heard of Strickland's and decided to try it while in Falfurrias. Almost drove past as the outside is very faded and worn. Inside was well lighted and clean, with a fun old west decor. The staff was friendly and the mexican food was great. Wish I could have stayed another day and tried another item on the menu... More
