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

Awesome family breakfast stop. Staff was so friendly! Our kids got the "mini" chocolate chip pancakes but they were bigger than their faces! Huevos rancheros so delicious and the biscuits and sausage gravy were light and fluffy with spicy gravy. Yum!

So glad I went! Didn't realize they closed after lunch, thankfully we made it for breakfast! I ordered the Hot Rocks and Texas Butter, knowing I couldn't eat it all. Our waitress offered up a half order, which I wouldn't have thought of, and I really appreciated that. The atmosphere was great! Several locals that seemed to be regulars, and... More
