Good charbroiled burger on a Fabulous bun! Awesome onion rings! The whole family loved it. $1 margarita Wednesday put it over the top. And a waiter named "Stetson". Only in Texas! And I live here!

Service was O.K., Stears were great - Pricey. Staff seems to be all new and still learning, but tried to be helpful. Not handicap friendly because of layout of restaurant and floors were somewhat slick due to the bad weather.

The chicken fried steak was tender and cooked to my liking with gravy and mashed potatoes. Hit the Wednesday night $1.00 margaritas and believe it or not, a man can still enjoy adult beverages and a cigar after a great meal.

We arrived right at 5:00 pm.(opening for the evening service). We were seated promptly and drink order taken. Drinks were brought right out. Ordered the appetizer of choose two fried mushrooms and jalepeno popper things. They tasted good but thought it was a rather small portion. It seemed to take extra long to receive our meals. Sister ordered the sliced... More

We arrived one minute before closing time, but the manager and all staff welcomed us and made sure our meal was prepared and served in a timely manner. The food did not taste like "end of the day leftovers."

Stopped for the night in Belton, Texas. Looking for a place for dinner, when right under our noses was a terrific restaurant. The sweet smell of BBQ waft over the parking lot. Walking through the door we were met by a pleasant young man who took us to our table. We were surrounded by a really interesting Western decor. Everywhere... More

Texas BBQ at its best. Although this place is a bit hard to get to because of the perpetual construction on I-35, it is worth the effort. I had the beef brisket and it was outstanding. Add yo that the smoked turkey and you have a great combination. For sides, I had potato salad and jalapeño beans which were great... More

Do not know how they stay open other than a motel is next door and it is an easy on and off to the highway (except now while construction is in place). I would compare to a Denny's. Price is not bad, but food is only mediocre.

I'm very picky, but we've never had a bad meal here. Two nights ago, we stopped in at about 8. We were seated right away, and attended to right away. We order a ribeye, baked potato and salads. It was probably the best steak we've had in awhile. The salad was fresh and dressings were good. It's not much on... More

There is not much near the Expo center to eat at. We got to the Oxbow and the smell was wonderful. We waited a bit to be seated. There was a waitress who kept running back and forth by our table. Others were seated after us and were waited on before us. We almost got up and walked out when... More
