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.

Had read some good reviews on this site and stopped by for lunch during a business trip to Roswell. The place is not much to look at from the outside but the parking lot full of cows suggested that it was very popular with the locals. We lucked out and were seated in a large booth fairly quickly. 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.

Cool atmosphere, although I disliked the outward facing "half" table where people sat right behind us facing our table, weird feeling. The food was good, though the runny tasteless green chile they brought on the side for the burrito should be skipped. Pancakes were yummy.

We stopped here for lunch on Aug 8th. We all ordered Cowboy Burgers with fries. I ordered sweet potato fries with mine and it came out with regular fries. I told the waitress and she quickly got me an order of sweet potato fries, which were cooked to perfection. The burgers were very fresh, juicy and delicious. When we got... More
