Good food, sub-par service

I wanted to rank this higher, but I couldn't. I gave it average because the food was good, otherwise it would have been rated as poor. The food was really good, but the service was sooooo slow. We had to ask another waitress to get our waiter so that we could order. The people next to us were... read more

By ordering the lunch special, one would think the food would come fairly quickly, but it took right at 30 minutes to get our plates. The next day, we ordered the Chicken Salad Sandwich, thinking it might be quick, and it also took 30 minutes to get. The food is pretty good, but when you only have an hour to... More

Have been to MBC several times throughout the years. Generally, it is really good. A little disappointed this time-service was slow, portions seemed a little smaller. My sandwich was delicious, but others in my party were not as impressed. Wasn't a bad experience, just not as good as in the past. I plan to go back in the future and,... More

Because I had been to this restaurant a few times and had liked it, I took my boss there for lunch when we were in San Angelo in August. After we were seated we noticed things seemed a bit disorganized, and when the waitress came to take our order she told us that the cook had not shown up and... More

Since I happened to be in the Cactus Hotel this morning, I thought I'd stop in and have lunch. I almost wish I hadn't. I ordered "The Bronte", which was supposed to be a hot roast beef sandwich, with mashed potatoes. The meat appeared to be some kind of pressed something or other, probably originally frozen. It had very little... More

This was our first visit to the cafe. It apparently is part of the old Cactus Hotel. Rustic/eclectic decor. Server wasn't the best and we were wishing we had the other server who was really tending to her customers. Food, however, was great! I had a panini with turkey, ham, bacon, avocado, lettuce and a specialty mayo. Husband had the... More

Decorated with a rustic, western flair, the decor matches the food which is dishes are named after San Angelo and surrounding towns. It is located in the historic Cactus Hotel. Wander on into the building to enjoy the opulent space.

My wife and I are retired professionals who are touring Texas looking for hidden delights. We are in San Angelo this week and found this place and were so pleased. Friendly people, great food and a great look. Try the butter milk it is great. Great place
