Lunch with friends

Food was good and so was service. We were seated promptly and were waited on immediately. Charo beans are wonderful and beef brisket sandwich was very good.

I visited this restaurant during lunch with my husband and in-laws over the 2015 Christmas holiday. The first thing that happened when we sat down was they gave us all a coffee mug full of pinto beans and as far as I am concerned they were the best part of the meal. The beef drippings in the beans just put... More

A whole hella lot of food. you will not go away hungry. You can see the smoke ring on the brisket, so you know it is true. Do not leave with out having the banana pudding, this is a real treat.

We chose this place based on trip advisor recommendations. Husband reports "No Complaints." I think they try too hard....lots of decor, rustic stuff. Small servings of sides, though they were good. Thought the bean soup was very good; actually better than the 'cue, though it was okay. I had the baby backs - they were good but nothing special. That... More

Have dined here with family every time we are down in the Valley. Service is very good and they keep those delicious bowls of pinto beans coming! You can have as much (or as little) of them as you like. Drinks come in a small plastic pitcher - which makes for an interesting reaction to watch from first time diners.... More

Stopped by on a weekday night for dinner with the family. We were promptly greeted with a friendly welcome and seated quickly. The food is of high quality and tasted great! The bean soup was awesome also! The restaurant was very clean and service was great; highly recommend it!

We have eaten at The Longhorn Cattle Company on several occasions. Every time was delicious food and excellent service. We had the chopped sandwiches with potato salad and both were so good and flavorful. Another time I had the Chopped Cheddar Spud......it was big enough for two meals and I took home half of the potato for lunch the next... More

Went with my girlfriend in an attempt to explore as many Valley eateries as we could during the summer. Food tastes good enough, but you don't get a whole heap of it. The cup of beans I received only had a few beans, it was mostly water. My girlfriend had more beans in her cup, so I guess I just... More
