“A Gem of a place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012 via mobile

The chicken fried steak is fantastic. The season breading is crunchy and flakey. The steak is very moist and tender and the gravy is thick and creamy. We also tried the rib appetizer,  it was fantastic. Great cozy place, staff was very friendly.

“Surprise in middle of town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

Arrived at 8:15 during week when probably ready to close. Very friendly staff and very good food. Chicken friend steak was great. Barbq was super. Brought bottle of wine and everybody left happy and content. Great place in town if you want something just not same old ordinary.

“Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2011

Even though the tables are somewhat close together and the restaurant seemed to be under staffed a bit (waitress was a little overwhelmed, but friendly enough), the food was well worth stopping in for. They serve generous portions and they don't scrimp on the cheese and dressing for their specialty salads. I ordered a salad with mesquite-grilled chicken and it was very fresh and the chicken was seasoned and grilled perfectly. This was our second visit to Cole Mountain and my husband and I would both recommend it if you're looking for a place to get a good chicken-fried steak and baked potatoes cooked just right.

“Quirky place... but really good tasting food for the money!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2009

Terrell TX has a limited supply of places to eat. When traveling on business, you end up trying everyplace in town. I would not normally have gone to this place becuase it just doesnt look all that great from the street. Parking lot is in shambles, the sign looks old, etc... and then when you go inside, it is very rustic. Plank flooring, quirky decorations, etc.
BUT... when you arrive, and get out of your car... take a big whiff... you can smell the smoke from the real wood they use to cook their steaks.
Menu is rather diverse. Filets, Prime Rib, "the best chicken fried steak in TX", chicken fried chicken, Quail, Ribs... all the items you would expect from a steakhouse.
I typically get the 8 oz Ribeye (they have 12 and 16 ounce as well) which comes with choice of Potato, salad, and the price is under $13.
