We traveled to Bandera last week and decided to take our girls out for breakfast to OST. They absolutely loved sitting on the saddles at the bar and staff was eager to please. Great breakfast food items and great atmosphere.

We saw the local Sunday lunch crowd and knew this must be the place. It's a good thing they let me order the child's chicken fried steak. It was still huge. Came with home fries. I asked for the wonderful gravy on the side. Oh,...More
