“The decline of Texas Tradition”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

I don't know where the trip advisor photo was taken, but the luxury interior shown above does not in any way depict Texas tradition in Katy. It is galvanized tin and chip board, and rustic Texas.
Frankly, I have had better meals there. The owners used to greet you and they are always absent. The food, is maybe slightly above average, maybe not, but we are talking basic food here, not luxury food. My fries had been under the heat lamp too long and were beginning to get limp. What a shame.

“Good Burgers, overpriced sides”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Three of us had lunch, 1 meatloaf special, 1 Patty Melt, and 1 Bacon Cheeseburger, 3 Iced Teas. $35 We declined the sides, as French Fries at $2.25 extra was steep. Other sides like onion rings or Sweet potato fries went up from there. I can understand charging extra fo anything extra beyond fries or chips, but most any restaurant/burger place throws the fries in the basket with the burger.

“Great place. Homey, good service, good burgers and chicken-fried steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Great place. Homey, good service, good burgers and chicken-fried steak. Live music on the back deck ofn friday's. Small sandbox for the kiddies in the way back. Inexpensive--easy to find-conveniently located.

Only downsides--on the rare very cold day in katy the heat isn't adequate (or wasn't last winter). It also can get a bit smoky at times from the smokers.

“I love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Whether its breakfast or All-you-can-eat catfish fridays this place is awesome. They make one of the best tasting burgers in town and I have never been diappointed. Great for families as well, there is a playground in the back and live music on Fridays.
