Mexican Ribeye off the chain great. Served on a hot skillet! Great flavor with just the right amount of 'kick'. Above average service! Truck parking available on site! Small place where looks are deceiving from the outside. Clean no flys from what I can recall.

We stopped here for dinner while passing through Merkel on I-20. The appetizer and meal were both great. We would stop here if passing through this area again.

I'm always pleased with my food. It is a very loud and poorly ventilated place. Their place has a "less rough" atmosphere. Some of the best onion rings around.

I live just out of Merkel and have eaten at Skeet's lots of times. The food is always good, hot and fresh. The burgers are very good, the meat is not frozen and the bun is fresh. It has a country look. At lunch or supper it is always full. It is one of those places that you say, is... More

Have eaten here half a dozen times and always been pleased. The chicken fried steak at this Skeets location is the best I have eaten anywhere.

Their 12 oz Rib-Eye Steak is 16.99! A great value, great flovor and it comes with 2 sides. Good service! Dieters can order the Chicken Caesar salad or the grilled fish. All very good!

Skeet's is located on the south I-20 service road, close to several hotels in that area. We did a call-in, take-out order for chicken fried steaks ... they took the order courteously, and it was ready at the time they promised. Great food, great hometown Texas atmosphere, very reasonable prices!

For the money, this is our favorite lunch stop. Great menu and staff. You gotta love it when Skeet is in the kitchen -- the owner is definitely involved here. A full plate of food at a great price.
