I can honestly say, "I've eaten there for years and never had a bad meal!" The only way you're going to believe me is to give it a try. Just remember that you'll n ever know unless you give it a try. The Brisket, ribs, the chopped beef sandwiches are tops. Don't forget to try the beans (I always add... More

My wife and I were on our way to another restaurant....Traffic seemed to have other ideas... Colter's was handy to the highway. Highly recommend the diner. The food is really tasty. awesome portions. Highly recommend the shaved brisket...very tender and flavorful....

Real Texans know their tacos, chili and BBQ! So, when I say that Colter's is good, that carries weight. The music is true country and the decor represents Texas well. The staff is friendly, even made suggestions that save me $. The food is tasty. I look forward to my next visit.

I love going here because you get fast service in the drive thru or inside. The place is clean ,the food is great and it's a good deal for the money. The wait staff are helpful and the restrooms are clean. Go on enjoy.

I was there this weekend. I swear, and I've experienced this before, the quantity of food administered to eat customer is different. My daughter and I ordered the sausage and her pile was twice the size of mine. I sat there and had to laugh. I wanted to shoot a picture as proof, but my grandkids attacked the pile before... More

This is another of the places that we have driven by on numerous occasions and thought, "maybe we will give them a try." We finally did last night and it was very good. We are kind of picky about our BBQ and were quite happy with the quality and taste. The service was good, the staff friendly and the restrooms... More

Truly a dining disappointment. I have eaten here twice in the last two months, and both times, my beans and meat were cold. When I asked the person behind the counter to warm it up, my food was literally thrown in a microwave or something and given back to me. The Texas toast was stale, the baked potato hard enough...

If there was ever a completely average BBQ restaurant, here it is. Nothing to recommend and the quality of smoke on the meat was next to nonexistent. There are so many better places.

This location used to be so good and fresh but everytime we go the macaroni is cold or old, the rolls are anything but fresh and the baked potatoes taste like they have been sitting around all day. the wait in the drive thru is usually really bad too.
