“Here's The Beef”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Had an early dinner here on a Saturday night and had no wait!!! The interior has an Old West atmosphere. Our waiter "Cactus Jack" was an amiable young man who although very busy , gave us his undivided attention and happily answered all our questions. We ordered frozen margaritas that were wonderful but the star of the night was our rib eye steaks. They were cooked to perfection and so tasty. We probably embarrassed ourselves by picking them up to chew on the bones but we had no shame. They were awesome.Our salads were very fresh and our side of beans was plentiful. The only minor complaint was the bread......it looked and tasted like a thick slab of WonderBread. We were hoping for some good sourdough or cornbread instead. The place is friendly and loud and can become more raucous if a tie is being cut off a patron and mounted on the wall. jack remembered that one of our party was celebrating a birthday and although we were too full for dessert, he presented her with a dish of ice cream with a candle on it and the led the other patrons in a chorus of "Happy Birthday". Afterwards we strolled the grounds and there was alot to see and do. A nice evening all the way around.

“Great food, great price, great fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Went to celebrate a birthday. Food was awesome, and much better than expected considering the very reasonable price. Enthusiastic service, and yes they will cut your tie off. A magician visited the table and entertained the kids with some good illusions. This restaurant is in a location ripe for photos and being a photographer I loved it. Has a carousel and another ride for kids as well as shops and live entertainment.

“Never again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

The only thing good about visiting this steakhouse is the long wait outside. This place has much entertainment and kids love it. However once seated inside your wait again is very long and boring. The food seems to be getting more expensive and the service is poor. The food is nothing to write home about. I suggest visiting trail dust town and skipping this steakhouse.

“Way over-rated but not worthy of a repeat try”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

A steak ordered by one of our party was inedible and not eaten. The manager did comp this item but chose not to have words with us. An order of barbeque ribs looked appealing but failed an important taste test. Our best guess was the ribs were from the prior day and reheated. The meat was mushy and lacked zing. Would never go back.

“Just ok.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

The atmosphere was fun. We didn't have to wait for a table for our party of 4. The servers were running around like chickens with their heads cut off so we waited awhile for our drinks and just about everything else. Had ribs and their famous steak. Ribs were fall off the bone tender while the t-bone was chewy and tough even though I got medium rare. Beans were dry, oddly, but the potatoes were great. Fun for kids if you are willing to wait between courses for chewy steak and dry beans.
