This was a delightful well lit restaurant and the service was good. I have the cowgirl and it was cooked to my order and that's rare sometimes. No pun intended

Here is a restaurant time forgot....probably hasn't changed in 30 years, although the price probably gone up. Not much to look at unless you like dives. Family friendly. Superb service. Steaks, steaks and some other food if someone doesn't like steaks. Steaks are very tasty, cooked perfectly. Basic beer...no craft. Wine list? Red and white. Full bar. Priced well.

I ordered the Porterhouse. This steak is humungous! Potato was loaded and quite good. Salad dressing was thick and made the salad perfect. Great buy for the money. Very country homey feel.to the place. Server was on spot!

This is a somewhat casual, typical steak place. It has some American style comfort foods, including many of fried foods. The bathrooms are tiny, feeling a bit like an afterthought. The service was good, but not great. We didn't really fit in with the other patrons, and even heard staff agreeing with a patron's racist statements.

A trip back to the 1960s era neighborhood steak house. A place to celebrate birthdays, graduations or enjoy a special night out. Sweet memories, however, times have evolved. With chain brands, a good steak has become common. That being said, I enjoyed good service, a friendly staff and that's about it : (. My entree was the $20 Cowgirl t-bone.

Best steak I ever ate. got the cowboy and was not sorry. my wife got the prime rib and it was terrible. The server took it off our bill with no question and we did not even ask her too. The service was great and all the other food was wonderful. Much better that theLlong Horn and Out Back. Will... More

Decent food, but the place is incredibly dirty besides being run down. Don't look at the ceiling - or the floors - or the booths, or the restrooms.... Strip steak was good, Steak skewer was good, the Fried Chicken and the Grilled Chicken salads were both fresh and good. House salad dressing is a parmesan ranch/bleu cheese dressing - Very... More

Went to the restaurant on my Cousins Birthday. The restaurant itself is rather run down and the interior needs a bad renovation. The food however was top notch and the steaks are cooked to perfection! Everyone enjoyed their steaks.

Like the restaurant, let's keep it simple. Great steaks and grilled delights. Simple tasty side. Great service and value prices. Challenge to eat the 6 lb steak meal.

The Good: The staff is excellent, the kitchen is fast even when it's busy, and the food is awesome. There may not be a better filet in town. The rest of the steaks are 4 of 5, and none are more than $22 a meal. Try the loaded buck skins as an appetizer. With your meal, skip the baked potato... More
