“Fun time, traditional Texan saloon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

A group of us visited. There is an 8$ pp cover charge although if they know you and are a large group they will give you a small break. Obviously they expect you to drink and rightfully slow. There was no food and they had a live trio of country musicians. The music was very good and I'm not usually a country fan. Folks get up and dance. There is money tacked on walls from visitors from everywhere. It was fun to read the various messages written on the walls. THIS IS A SALOON, be ready for drinking and lots of smoking. It was tough getting passed the smoke but it was worth the visit. It's great place to understand Texan culture. There was even a family with two kids under 7 years of age with cowboy hat and boots; not a place I ever bring my kids to; you must understand Texan culture. Service was very friendly. Conversations were taking place at every corner of this bar.

“white elephant saloon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Great place to kick back and watch country bands and have some cocktails/beers, weekends are really crowded but well worth finding a chair in the crowd.

“Had a great night - fab atmosphere - great fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

We visited the White Elephant with friends and two guys were singing, there was a dance floor for doing the Texas Two Step and we had a fabulous night.
If you look up the ceiling is covered with Cowboy hats.
A fabulous honky tonk - definitely recommend you give it a go if you visit the Stockyards one evening.
Superb.

“Nothing spectacular”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Had to pay $8 pp cover charge on a Saturday night, but did have a band to ease that pain. Many of the other bars in the Stockyard had lines but no cover. Heard Walker Texas Ranger was filmed in this bar, but it seemed pretty dingy, dark & dirty these days. Was hard to get a drink, even though they weren't that busy.

“Real cowboy saloon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

We only had time to pop in for a quick drink but it was really worth it!
The atmosphere and ambience was fantastic. You could just imagine that at any moment a cowboy with a pistol was going to stroll in and offer someone a duel outside!
