We camped in the near by nature area and needed somewhere for a quick bite before our drive home. There was a slight wait here, but they moved very quickly to get tables turned. The food was actually pretty yummy. The pancakes were like dessert! I had an omelet that was big and pretty good. The people were very friendly!... More

A time capsule full of great food! My husband grew up coming here and he said it hasn't changed a bit. The key to a successful restaurant is consistency!!

We went because of trip advisor and were not disappointed. My husband Ordered the chicken fried steak and he said it was very good. I ordered the taco salad and it was one of the best meals we have enjoyed in Texas. Highly recommend

This restaurant is a must-see when visiting Bandera. Still has the saddle seats at the bar and a whole room dedicated to John Wayne. It's been here many years and still serves up a huge variety of delicious meals, including breakfast at any time. Great food--no beer or wine, though.

Ate here with my wife and really enjoyed it. It's a cool looking country place. The staff and service was very good. I had the CFS and it was very good. My wife had a burger, we were both very satisfied. I would return if in the area.

We stopped for lunch. Menu has a variety of items & breakfast is served all day. Our choice was the salad bar & soup. Salad bar was average & could have used a little more creativity. Chicken rice soup was tasty & was homemade. Server was very pleasant. This seems to be a local & family place. No alcohol is... More

We waited almost minutes for our drinks. Then another 10 for our waitress to come back and take our order. I ordered a baked potato and my husband ordered a ribeye and mashed potatoes with gravy. After another 25 minutes our order comes out. My potato was tiny (not small, tiny) and cold. My butter wouldn't even melt on it.... More
