Good food

I had the baked catfish. It was better than I thought it would be. Ordered the small plate and I got two huge filets. They were cooked to perfection. Decent salad bar. Friendly service. I will be eating here again.

This place has a large salad bar - but unless you are a goat, don't buy the salad bar by itself - order a meal and get the salad with your plate. For one trip (and as many plates as you need), you can get more than you will be able to eat if you had 2 days to do... More

Been eating here since it was built and before the fire at the location up the highway. Quality always excellent because Cronje bought the best meat and supervised the kitchen. Get the enchilada plate and you will not be disappointed. Do not order the large CFS unless you are with somebody because it will take two people to finish it.... More

I ordered the cheeseburger, with sour dough bun. It was really great, like something you would cook at home. My husband ordered the taco's, and was quite surprised by the size and the taste. He said they were among the best he'd had. It was very busy the night we were there, but our server, Kathryn, was a delight. She... More

Great family owned restaurant! Quiet atmosphere, great decor, clean and great food. It don't matter if you order an appetizer, burger, steak, or just have dessert you will find it is great food. Fresh cooked and served to perfection. Might I suggest trying the Nacho Supreme, it is incredible, but one warning order the small unless you are really hungry.... More

The restaurant was clean, coffee was great. We had breakfast and it was good, nothing spectacular. I would eat breakfast there again if in the area.

Average dining...average wait staff.....hit and miss for both. Middle of the road pricing. Consider the lack of choices in Gatesville, Rancher's may be an option for you if you just don't want to cook. Definitely NOT a destination restaurant.

This place reminds me of K-Bobs or Western Sizzler. Steaks tend to be thin but flavorful. The salad bar was excellent with a wide variety of toppings and dishes. We had the 8oz Ribeye that was on the lunch special for 10.99. It was good, the side vegetables were unremarkable. Steak was cooked correctly and was tasty.
