“Cowboy Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Nice experience. All waiters and waitresses in full Texan attire, very polite, customers were dancing on a wooden floor and having fun. I enjoyed it along with my guest who was traveling from NY had a good time. Would recommend.

“Overpriced”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

The food quality was lacking while the prices were sky-high. The salad consisted of bagged lettuce mix with one slice of cucumber and one cherry tomato. The beans looked like they were straight out of a can. The potatoes were cold (both my husband's mashed and my sweet) and the meat was nothing special. Save your money and go somewhere else.

“Awesome steakes!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

As you would expect in Texas, the steaks there are not for the faint of heart. They're serious cuts of well aged meat that are cooked to perfection. The atmosphere and staff are very friendly. We will be back!

“Friends said "best steak ever"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Thank you Trail Dust. We met some friends from out of state in Dallas and took them to Trail Dust for dinner. Price was reasonable and EVERYONE loved their steaks. We'll make it a habit to visit whenever we're back in the Dallas area. Thanks!!

“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We went to the Trail Dust on our last night in town. This is a great restaurant. Good food, friendly service. If you like to eat, this is where you need to go. Very large portions, etc. Everything from the salad, appetizer and steak was all great. Average price per person is around $25. Definitely worth the trip.
