After waiting for 40 minutes for a table than 40 minutes to wait to order dinner from table waitress could not handle the few tables she had. Tacos are small street size so don’t order just one. Many orders around us were getting wrong as...for our own. If going to drink and just get a small thing to eat is only way I would recommend. Though for a family meal it is a joke. $120 for 4 of us with no alcohol drink it’s outrageous with two of us leaving still hungry is sad.More

This is a fantastic restaurant. The margaritas are delicious and addicting. The food was fresh and perfectly done. The staff are friendly and make sure you’re taken care off. Living out of state is a shame because I wont get to go here all the...time but we are definitely planning a trip to the area. This place is number one on the list to visit.More

I would have gave it five stars if it would have been so long to get a table. Arrived at 4:30 and waited approximately 1:10 minutes for a seat. The food was great for kids and the tacos were amazing. I would come back just...as long as I didn't have to wait that long.More

Great food. Great drinks. Fun atmosphere. We alway enjoy going to the Salty Cowboy. The nachos are a favorite. Bartenders are super friendly and wait staff always quick.

This is my favorite restaurant in town. My go to is the classico nachos and a pomegranate margarita. Their tacos are awesome as well. Honestly the only downside is that it is always crowded and busy. That is the result of the phenomenal food. Note...the nachos I mentioned are huge and should be shared.More

We arrived on a Thursday evening and had about a 30 minute wait for seating. There is pleasant area out front to wait and we got drinks from the bar inside while waiting. Service was timely and we were not rushed. The chips and queso...were tasty and a generous portion. We tried 4 different types of street tacos both fish and chicken varieties . Sauces were tasty, but chicken chunks tended to be quite spicy and large chunks for tacos . The corn tortillas were thicker than usual and made it seem a bit like a burrito. The sugar shack quesadilla with pulled pork was amazing and by far the best part of the dinner. Overall this place combines lots of neuvo foods and sauces is a nice way, and is a nice addition to the downtown area.More

My husband and I went here on a Friday night. There were things we enjoyed and things that were not so enjoyable. Pros: food came out hot and fast, the guac and queso was great, our waitress was very friendly, the wait wasn't very long...Cons: restaurant seemed dirty, alcoholic beverages were not very tasty and my margarita tasted watered down, too many flies.More

We were pretty early so we didn't have to wait but it was busy. All of the staff was friendly and attentive. Kudos to Melissa Calvin and Matt. Guacamole is the best I have ever had. We shared sugar shack nachos and enjoyed them. Overall...another great experience at the CowboyMore

Went to dinner by myself on a business trip. It was pretty busy, but the bar area was 1st come, first serve, so I didn't have to wait to be seated. They had drink specials and the bartender was friendly. I ordered 3 different tacos...and they were all really good. Seemed like a fun atmosphere and I would have liked to hang out more, if I wasn't alone. I will probably go back if I am in town again.More

No I don't think they take reservations. They are usually busy.
