Catch some of Charlie's Catfish

31 days into ownership, Chef Charlie impressed us with his catfish. We ordered the lunch special as an appetizer and really enjoyed the flavorful coating to this fish. We also had the chicken club, BLT and a burger. All were tasty, and you can't beat the fries and sweet potato fries. A milkshake to... read more

Reading that Chef Charlie had taken over Rosebud, we decided to give it a try for lunch. The grilled shrimp were nearly inedible due to the heavy-handed and poorly chosen seasoning. The chicken fried steak was of the frozen variety straight off a Sysco truck. Service was friendly but slow. The salads had been prepared earlier in the day and... More

The Rosebud fountain and grill is under new management. Chef Charley Lara is cooking and making the menu. The food is wonderful and surprisingly less expensive than it should be for the quality. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone!

If you love fried pickles, to me theirs are the best in town. You can make a meal off of just them. They also have great hambugers. Friendly staff and always bringing the tea around. NICE. Great atmosphere love the old look.

Expect great food for here. The cooks are awesome. It is typical cafe type food. I usually eat a burger or patty melt. The fries are great too. Onion rings are a close second. Service is hit or miss. I have had both great and poor experiences here. Do not expect a quick lunch.

The staff at the Rosebud work hard to please. Don't be off put by the décor (some of the original soda shop signage) the food is MUCH better looking. The menu is typical café/Grill but the food was very good. The Chef moved through the restaurant and talked with customers. GREAT Chicken fried Chicken served with real mashed potatoes. Definitely...

I haven't eaten here in awhile and ate here with a coworker. The restaurant was packed at lunch and we got drinks and food very quick we were in and out in 45 minutes! The food was very good and service was great even though they were very busy at noon. We had the shrimp salad and the shrimp were... More

This burger was one of the best I've had. Waitress said they use something special on them. My husband had the chicken fried steak and was very pleased. Beer batter fries also good. Biggest coke/tea glass I've ever had.

The burger was juicy not greasy and cooked just right. I asked the waitress whether I should get the potato chips or fries - she told me to get the chips and she was right. Nice, fresh chips, with the right amount of salt. I went on a workday and got there a bit early to beat the crowd. The... More

Varied menu. Original and oh so tasty recipes. Wonderful and friendly service. Unique and awesome atmosphere. Has been featured on Texas Country Reporter and several other journals and magazines. Come see for yourself. I've been eating here for almost 40 years and still find something new to treasure each time I eat here. BTW - I'm not THAT old. Late... More
