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.

We've been there many times. Super slow. Hair in the dipping sauce, Ew! Server had a lot of trouble getting the right beverages and sides that we had ordered. He poured water in my drink (gin) and didn't offer to replace it. Not going back.

We spent a good 20 minutes happily chatting with Kevin, the very friendly owner, while seated on the very nice outdoor patio. Service was great, even as the place got progressively more busy. We ordered the tilapia fingers and a really nice salad that came with a bacon dressing. Very good! They do a nice job here. Will definitely go... More

When traveling, it is good practice to ask where the "locals" go. As for Cowboy's, it is the place where locals go. (I am one.) Went there tonight to have my favorite fish sandwich. Delicious as usual. Enjoyed a pint of Gull Dam Scotch Ale, which is a local beer from Gull Dam Brewing that Cowboy's has on tap. Goes... More

We had lunch here twice. They offered basket food which we had at the bar. A dinning room and outside seating is also available.

The food has always been great, the wait staff usually excellent. We wonder why you do not have toast with breakfast. So that is separate???? Never saw that before, however, the breakfast is a good deal. Love the Cowboy Chicken sandwich.
