Of a party of two, one had a fine brisket sandwich, the other a greasy tasteless burger. Seasoning needs help. The one waiter did a fine job but had too many tables and orders. No sign of management. The ventilation was poor and after leaving we had to drive with windows open as our clothes absorbed the cooking odors. Washed... More

Looks like your normal bar/pub. But we decided to try their breakfast and it was really good! I had a prime rib hash (limited availability, but they also have corned beef hash). There was a LOT of food. The only downside is that service was a little slow (but extremely polite). We were the second couple to arrive after they... More

My two friends and I had my first breakfast at Cowboys.... My biscuits and gravy was delicious ! The cubed, seasoned potatoes were great too! Service very good also. I cleaned my plate! Cheers! Kim

Food is good here but is pricy. They have indoor and outdoor seating. If it's nice out I like to sit outside. Burgers and sandwiches are great. They have a bar area with seating and a dining room/pool room. They have TV's to watch different sports shows, it's okay but lacks atmosphere.

We eat here quite often, and many times out on their outdoor patio which is fun. They have very good burgers, a wonderful fish sandwich, good fries, surprisingly good soup and most importantly a nice selection of good, cold tap beers. This place falls into the "dive" category and is always a fun spot to dine.

You will find anything from Appetizers (try the Fish fingers) they also have Salads, great burgers, sandwiches and Meat and Potato Dinners. Friday and Saturday Prime Ribs is being served. Breakfast is also... More

We had a great lunch at Cowboys. Chicken sandwich was nicely grilled, sweet potato fries were good too Try the Caesar salad with fish. Sounds odd, but it is wonderful. The fish is tilapia, and was perfectly fried. One price caution, every sauce costs a dollar extra.

We tried Zorba, but the band was loud & awful...also couldn't freaky find anything we wanted on the menu, so we drove 1 mile further to Cowboys. It was awesome! I had the cowboy burger...with egg & bacon. It was amazing. My wife had the patty melt. She said she'll be craving it again in a few days. I also... More

Our group all ordered burgers and were very satisfied with our choices. The burgers come in 1/4 lb and 1/2 lb sizes. Only 1/2 lb size can be cooked to preference while the 1/4 lb can only be made to well done. Sweet potato fries and deep fried French fries were both tasty. Also offer fresh veggies (cucumber sticks) as... More

This is a family favorite! From the hamburgers to grilled cheese to steak sandwiches. There is something for everyone. The beer batter fries and sweet potato fries are very good too! Great service. You won't be disappointed.
