Dinner was OK

The food is OK and tasty. The waitress was very attentive and pleasant. The tables, etc. just need a serious cleaning - everything seems sticky to the touch. The Corral has been there for ages and has a good reputation. We'll go back - my husband enjoys the bbq chicken - prices are fair.

While traveling through Victoria Texas a friend recommended The Corral for a late lunch. I had the 8 oz rib eye steak. It came with a soup and salad bar. Surprising the late in the afternoon the salad bar was fresh and had good choices. Brocolli Cheese soup was hot and tasty. My rib eye was cooked perfectly the backed... More

We were in town for business and someone recommended we pay this place a visit. The main bones of the place have apparently been there since the 50s and they're showing their age. Our waitress was decent though I was left waiting for a refill of my drink for a stretch. In the end the food itself was the only... More

Ordered The Chicken Fried Steak and fries, was ok up until I felt a long piece of hair on my chin! Needless to say I lost my appetite and although it was taken off our tickets I received NO Apology! Not to mention the bathroom was disgusting and smelled of urine.

I have been a resident of Victoria for 50 years and the Corral has been there the whole way. The owners have been in the hospitality business for as long as I've known and they are a delight. The prices are extremely good, you can get a large chicken fried steak and salad bar for under $8. I usually get... More

First of all, let me say that this is a place we eat every two months. One of my vendors likes to go here, probably because it is close. No one ever likes the food & we spend most of our lunch complaining about it. The service is the worst I've ever encountered! Just call and listen to the way... More

Employees use bad language infront of kids, dirty restrooms, rude owners, dead roaches under tables, salad tastes and smells like pinesol, watered down "bar bq sauce". Im never eating there again !

Even though we had Bar-B-Q, it was very bland and the sauce was like watered down catsup. The waitress was sweet though.
