This place has fun western decor and the staff is super friendly. They serve breakfast all day so I had biscuits & gravy while my co-worker had an omelette for our really late lunch. Both tasted great. I recommend avoiding the booths. Ours was too broken down and squishy. I felt like I might need a booster seat.

Stopped here for coffee late morning and wished we hadn't already eaten breakfast as everything people were eating around us looked good. A "real" home style cafe. Did manage a piece of pineapple cake. Coffee good. Service with a smile.

This place is beyond good. Excellent comes to mind. The menu isn't huge but what is there is worth every cent you spend. Below is Huevos Rancheros they were great. The Cowboy Cafe is a must stop in Roswell.

The atmospher... More

Great service from friendly folks serve up really good food. My burrito was huge and packed with just about everything. It was full of flavor and nicely seasoned with a good spicy kick. Definitely a great place to stop for breakfast or lunch.

A little off the Main Street on 2nd but friendly service, good food. They make their own sausage patties. And they were great. I would go back

Just had lunch at Cowboy Cafe. I had the best green chile cheese burger . It was so juicy and tasty. I would definitely be back. Visited the place because of the recommendations from Trip Advisor. Just loved it.
