Great home style food. Great breakfast. The biscuits and gravy have jalapeños; I wasn't expecting that. They were still good even though I don't like jalapeños. Good eggs and hash browns. They have nice thick ham steaks as an option.

Love breakfast at Old West even when its after noon! Huge plate-sized pancakes and fluffy biscuits and sausage gravy like my grandma used to make. Terrific lunches as well with yummy meatloaf and potluck. My only complaint is they don't do desserts anymore. But servings are big enough you don't really have room for dessert anyway. Open early but close... More

This place has great country breakfasts. The biscuits and gravy are fantastic and they have several options that you can choose. I they have good hash browns too. If you are visiting on the weekend, plan to wait a little bit before you get a table. They are always busy.

Great fun with Texas decor and wonderful but HUGE breakfasts. The crushed cereal dusted french toast was surprisingly good.

This location has a hard time serving biscuits and gravy above lukewarm, as well as other food items. I've had biscuits come out stone cold even when I asked my server to be sure they were warm. If this was a one time thing then OK, it's a one time thing. But it's happened to me at least half a... More

Usually go here to eat breakfast on Sunday. The staff is always friendly and courteous. The food I cannot say enough about it. It comes out the way you order it and there is enough for several people to eat from just one order. We've eaten here a few times for lunch and have never been disappointed. My favorite place...

Not only is the food wonderful, but you get plenty of it! Don't let the full parking lot preclude from waiting for a table. The service is fast and food is hot. The friendly staff is the best.

We've been going to Old West in Sanger for many years. There is lots of food and it is consistently great quality.

This place was built on friendly service great food and healthy portions. The lobby is small and a bit uncomfortable but often overlooked with the fore-mentioned pluses. Unfortunately our last visit was really really bad so we wanted to gives a heads up to folks out there to be on the lookout for warning signs so your experience is not... More

I ordered the standard fare for an American breakfast: 2 eggs over easy, bacon, and hash browns. The waitress brings the plate and sets it down on the table and I observed the sickening sight of the upper surface of the eggs sliding sideways a half an inch and back again, wave motion. I knew what this meant: the egg... More
