“Always consistently good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

We have been stopping at this restaraunt to eat every year on the way home from vacation for several years now. After vacation is over, it's always a continued highlight atthe end for us. The food is always consistently good. The food is always hot and fresh, and they serve it in very large portions, so almost every entree is enough for two people to share. The do have a selection of varieties of food, even though it is a steakhouse. They also have a nice children's menu. If you are in the area, stop by- you won't be disappointed. If there's a wait, stay...it's worth the wait. They have added a really nice bar, and have a small boutique to pass the time!

“Open for two hours and out of ribs :(”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

Showed up, an hour wait to eat, 30 min wait for drinks at the bar. No ribs after only offering for 2 hours. Stay away during pay check Fridays when the welfare trash is here. Otherwise, nice place!

“Popular local place - average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

I went here on recommendations from the locals, but I just don't get it. The food is average at best. The chicken fried steak wasn't fried right and the crust was hard and crumbly and the meat tough. They have an open salad bar that does not include a sanitary cover. But the prices aren't bad and the service is friendly. They also have a little gift shop inside where you can buy souvenirs.

This might be a great place to meet up with friends and chat, but if you want really good food, you might want to try somewhere else.

“Nice family owned restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

This place is the best American-Texas restaurant in Hondo. Friendly,clean, and very good service. They recently remodeled, and the new area, especially the outdoors, is great. Food is plentiful and good country cooking.

“Great TX Steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

Have passed this place several times from Del Rio to San Antonio and parking lot is always full. Great family owned steak house, both wife and I had chicken which was awesome. Grilled veggies and real deep fried pickles. Realy nice salad bar and great soup for starters. We could not finish our meal but are so glad we stopped. Will continue to keep this as a favorite stop over.
