Will eat here every time!!

My mom lives in the area and we made the quick drive to Nacogdoches to grab lunch. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed. The food was amazing. Best shrimp I have had in awhile. Didn't get to try the huge plate of onion rings the table down from us had ordered, but that will be added to our order... read more

We ate at Clear Springs last weekend and loved it. It's a very causal restaurant with certainly a Texas feel. If you like fried food they do it really well. We started with the fried pickles and they were really good. We had the fried shrimp and for the price it was pretty close to the best I've had in... More

The oldest town in Texas knows their food. The onion rings, sweet tea and Catfish is the combo you are look'n for. My boy had the chicken fried steak, it too was just right. You will love the mid-meal train passing, as is shakes the building pretty good. The decor was country with lots of taxidermy on the walls, open... More

We live in the area and have eaten here several times but lately it has stepped up its food and service game. Start with fried pickles or their famous "Born and Bred in Texas Onion Rings", choose ANY entree, and finish with their scratch made chocolate cake or strawberry cheesecake. You will not be disappointed.

My wife & I visited on a Tuesday evening. Mostly local clientele which is usually a good sign as it was in this case. The chicken in my dish was beautifully cooked and seasoned with a tasty sauce and good accompaniments. My desert, peach cobbler, although very sweet in the American fashion, was very tasty. Nice atmosphere, friendly, helpful server,... More

Our group of 6 was seated and waited on promptly. We ordered a wide variety from the menu and everyone thought their meal was the best! As a matter of fact, we went back the next evening during our two-day stay in Nacogdoches, as we couldn't get enough!

My husband and I enjoyed our meals and it is probably as good as anything else we cod have gotten in town but it was not particularly outstanding. I would probably have enjoyed it more had the restaurant temperature not been so cold. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and service was good.

We had a minimal wait to seat a large party of 10 on a Saturday but it was after school was out. You MUST try the onion rings. Everything's good here. They have some vegetarian options and are willing to make most anything you want. I had fish tacos that I subbed the seasonal veggies for the fish and it... More

The waitstaff and management are superb. The manager, Alan, checked on my wife and me midway through our meal. Our server was terrific and even went back to the kitchen after he realized they had forgotten our hush puppies. Neither my wife nor I had noticed until our waiter pointed out the slip. The fried oysters are my favorite and... More
