Good food and good service

Good diner food and a good kids menu. The food was tasty and there was a wide selection so everyone got what they wanted.

Shamrock is a small town, translates into few eating spots short of chain fast foods. We had a great breakfast at Mitchell's , was thrilled to see the cook when she appeared, she knows how to cook. Waitress was friendly, efficient, will definitely stop in again!

We were traveling to Mexico and at this point our butts were tired of sitting/driving all day. We just needed a meal that wasn't fast food. The gas station girl said this was the best around....so in we went. The decor is outdated and country, but local and sincere. We were greeted warmly and promptly by the waitress and got... More

The service was rather slow and it took awhile before anyone acknowledged me, but it may have been just an aberration. The food was excellent!

I ate here twice and both times it was a small town restaurant with a family vibe. I was probably the only out of towner there both times but the waitresses were friendly and obviously knew their clientele. Police seem to eat here often, if that makes difference to you either way. If I get back to Shamrock I would... More

It was difficult to find anything open after 8 pm that wasn't fast food and this place was gracious enough to serve myself and several other hungry travel weary people like myself. The burger was great and those tater tots were the tops!!

We were on a cross country road trip and pulled into this spot for lunch. Our waitress was really nice, although everyone else in there just looked at us like we were from Mars. I know Californian's are different but these gals really made you feel it. The food was below par in our opinion. The place was dirty, plastic... More

We try to look for local, non fast food or chain restaurants when we travel. I'm not sure if that's so wise in this part of Texas. If you like heavy meals like chicken-fried steak and tough pork chop with mashed potatoes, then I guess their buffet for $9 is a good choice for you. But you had better like... More

We were traveling and hadn't seen much for miles (it's that way in Texas it seems) and this was right off Interstate with quite a few vehicles (mostly pickup trucks) lined up in the parking lot. Good sign....usually. We did get a good cup of coffee with our meal. Hubby had 'buffet w/ salad bar, soup'; I chose grilled cheese... More

Prices reasonable. Ordered hamburger steaks with mashed and baked potatoes. Salad bar was very basic and not presented well. When dinner came we both got french fries. No more mashed or baked potatoes. Didn't tell us before delivering our dinners. FFs are made there and they are proud of them. Ours were limp and greasy. Server was good but should... More
