Bring back the Old Buster McNutty's

We used to LOVE this place but now it's more for adults with less menu items. You now become a member too.

Service is bad, food options not appealing, the menu can be more veggie friendly. The building can be more attractive!

Good inexpensive food. Weekend band and dance floor. Service is good and everyone is friendly. Get to know the locals and they just added RV parking behind the restaurant. Family friendly.

All around good food and service. Home cooked meals and steaks are pretty good for this area. They also have a bar and the evening entertainment is pretty good as well. I would go back.

We visited the Tx 190 location on the evening of 6/7/13. We chose Buster McNutty's because it looked like a neat restaurant that probably had good food. The restaurant is in a great building and it does have a fun, family friendly atmosphere with a very Texas feel. We were served by one of the best waitresses we've ever had.... More

The atmosphere is fun and the food is good and plentiful! The steaks were cooked to order and the onion rings are gigantic! There is a bar and music in the... More

Service and atmosphere is the only good aspects of this "Family Style restaurant," on more than one occasion the food was undercooked or served raw. Salads are put together from ingredients in the open salad bar. Tried several times. Will not return.

I have been to Buster McNutty's several times. On my most recent visit last weekend, it was SUPER cold in the dining area and several tables complained about the temperature. The salad bar is one of the few in town, so it is a plus. The food is fine; nothing bad but nothing great either. We were pleasantly surprised to... More
