If you are ever passing through Gatesville stop and have a chicken fried steak or a great burger. Ask for Madison if she is working, she was super sweet and did a fantastic job.best service I've had in a while !

We enjoyed the salad bar, which had fresh fruit and a large selection of greens and vegetables. The baked potato was very fresh and moist. We ordered filets, cooked medium rare, but they were over-cooked, and had no flavor.

We've eaten here on two occasions when visiting family in Waco in their recommendation. We will next time also. The salad bar is fresh and varied, the steaks are cooked well and the desserts are homemade and delicious. The pie slices are HUGE and you will need a box to take some of it home after eating such a good... More

We were staying at the hotel next door and it was within walking distance. When we arrived we were greeted with smiles and taken to our table right away. Our server was very sweet and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was excellent and there was a lot of it. Great salad bar.

Not at all impressed. Chicken fried steak was dried out like it had been sitting under a warmer all day. Steak was cooked to order, but was tough. Green beans had no flavor. Salad bar was decent.

First of all you have too many young kids in there running the place. I asked our waitress about the baked potato if it was a loaded baked potato and she gave me a disgusted look and said yeah it is. Very rude to the people I was with as well. Then I noticed it was a thing between all... More

Each time we eat here, the food is good. Their large salad bar is a family favorite. There's something for everyone. The steaks are amazing, as other items on the menu, but do not leave until you've tried the homemade desserts, especially the cobbler!

The food is fantastic a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. Good salad bar. The chocolate pie is to die for.

This place has a large salad bar - but unless you are a goat, don't buy the salad bar by itself - order a meal and get the salad with your plate. For one trip (and as many plates as you need), you can get more than you will be able to eat if you had 2 days to do... More
