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

we ordered take out. They gave us a large container for the salad and the food arrived quickly. Convenient to the Best Western.

Stopped in here for a quick bite on our road trip and wish I would have kept driving. The place wasn't very clean, the salad bar was a joke. And the prices were way too much I don't mind paying $50 for a meal if its good. My advice is keep driving!!!!

The Best Western front desk clerk directed us here, stating that 'There isn't anyplace else.' (This turned out to be untrue.) The restaurant was shabby, the waitress was sloppy and wearing stained clothing, and the food was your basic fried, greasy-spoon fare. On top of that, it was expensive. As my husband noted, "This place gives greasy-spoons a bad name."... More

We were on a trip and looking for a breakfast buffet. No luck with that. ....we just couldn't find one on the road so we decided to try Mitchell's. It's the kind of small town hometown family restaurant I grew up with. The omelets were better than most, hashbrowns were crispy and better than anything we would have had on... More

Overall the food was good,restaurant and bathrooms were clean. Service was good. Had an old time diner feel. A little over priced but the food tasted very good.

Food was excellent. I ate there three times during a work visit in the area. The sale bar us included in most meals. Great value and excellent service. The decor is dated, but I was there to eat.

When you are driving through the panhandle of Texas your dining options are limited, expecially on New Year's Day. That is how we ended up in this diner in Shamrock Tx. It is amazing that his place stays open. As I walked into this diner I tried not to be influlenced by the barren decor. Looks can sometime be deceiving.... More
