This is the real deal. When Hollywood needs a set for a true Texas cafe, they can save big money and just come here. No need for set design or any extras. We had a wonderful helpful server, and the food came out in minutes cooked exactly as we ordered. The dining companion went with a Tex-Mex breakfast and took... More

I'm so glad I followed our waiter's suggestion and got the blueberry lemon pancake. It really is as big as your plate. And the blueberry syrup added just the right touch. Seriously scrumptious! The place is beyond rustic and very busy, with prompt service. Highly recommend.

This is the best breakfast in town. The place is old and the location is little odd. But servers are very friendly and my husband and I had a delightful breakfast. Thank you!

We stopped here for lunch. Without trip advisor probably would never have stopped. Plain building but when you step inside it is a nice clean place with Western decor. Staff very friendly. We were seated immediately but heard there had been a line a bit before we got there. We were offered both breakfast and lunch menus. Both with huge... More

Went for a 7:45 am breakfast and it was already getting crowded. Service was quick and staff was friendly. The blueberry pancakes are huge and delicious!

Old West has consistently the best breakfast food in town. They have a large menu, service is fast. Downside is that they are VERY crowded on the weekends and have limited parking when they have a full house. It is best to go on a weekday. Breakfast is served in the a.m. and at lunch.

10/26/2016 Visiting my daughter attending UNT here in Denton and she recommended this place. The parking is literally about 20 parking spaces and DO NOT park in other business areas, because there are TOWING signs posted everywhere. First, it was crowded when we arrived during the week at 10am ish but we were seated immediately. It's nothing fancy and very... More

Barely a place to sit, and all locals! We knew we had hit a homer in by the time our precious waitress had come to the table! It's one of those menus that makes you want to order one of each and the sides sound just as good or better than the entrees! We decided on lunch, even though breakfast... More

A great freshly made breakfast with good sized portions. Busy but not a long wait. It is nice to see a local family owned business be successful.

This is the original of the Old West Cafes that are dotting the metroplex. We liked that we could walk right in and not wait, unlike the overly busy location in Grapevine. The food was good. They have a large selection of breakfast items to choose from, and all at a great price.

Thank txerica
