My husband was craving a steak, so we decided to give True Grits a try. I immediately noticed that the waitstaff seemed rushed, overwhelmed and had very little time to give to the customers. Concerning considering we were there at 4p, not even prime dinner time. Our waitress went out of her way to tell EVERY table she had that... More

We arrived early for Saturday evening dinner and despite 3 servers working we were always waiting. The server seemed overwhelmed and briefly took our drink order. Drinks were served on the fly with placing on the table and we waited for her to come back to take the dinner order. We had very little interaction throughout the dinner with the... More

I ordered a "petite" prime rib cut, my husband had a sirloin. Both cuts were huge, beautifully spiced and tender enough to cut with a fork if you wanted to. Baked potatoes were excellent, moist and tasty. The owner has her meats for the restaurant cut from purchased whole cattle, cut to her specifications and she does the seasoning/marinading. Bravo,...

Nice quiet John Wayne-themed restaurant with great steaks. Sides of french fries (delicious) and mashed potatoes.Starter was minestrone (home made). A great meal. And gentlemen, please visit the restroom to use the John Wayne-sized urinal!

We were staying across the road at one of the hotels. And it was an easy walk over. I really enjoyed my meal. My steak was juicy. And my daughters burger was large and filling.

Good local restaurant. Salad and rolls were good as well as the service. My steak was disappointing.

We were staying at a campground close by and headed into town to grab a bite to eat and this just happened to be the first place we came upon. There was a couple coming out so we ask them how the food was and they said the steaks were excellent. The seating area we were at had wagon wheel... More

True Grits is a bar-steakhouse place. The service was excellent, and the little helper was a joy to converse with. The portions are large, so it's a good value. The food itself was a little bland, but everything was fresh. I would choose this place over a chain restaurant anytime.

We arrived at a little after 4pm which is their opening time. There were no lights on and no cars in the lot. It was a bad sign, but my sister had recommended this as one of her only places to eat in Alamosa. We waited for a while then I tried the door. Mint was open so I walked... More
