Have eaten here half a dozen times and always been pleased. The chicken fried steak at this Skeets location is the best I have eaten anywhere.

Their 12 oz Rib-Eye Steak is 16.99! A great value, great flovor and it comes with 2 sides. Good service! Dieters can order the Chicken Caesar salad or the grilled fish. All very good!

Skeet's is located on the south I-20 service road, close to several hotels in that area. We did a call-in, take-out order for chicken fried steaks ... they took the order courteously, and it was ready at the time they promised. Great food, great hometown Texas atmosphere, very reasonable prices!

For the money, this is our favorite lunch stop. Great menu and staff. You gotta love it when Skeet is in the kitchen -- the owner is definitely involved here. A full plate of food at a great price.

My favorites are the barbecue chicken plate with beans and potato salad. It comes with a deep fried biscuit "puff" to eat with honey too. Great service always

There are several Skeet's in the area. It's well worth the effort to go to the Hailey Street location. Same food for 1/2 the price of the highway 20 locations. Ribeye is highly recommended.

Skeet's Texas Grill in Merkel is right of Interstate 20, so easy on/off. It's fairly small, very friendly and has really good food. We've stopped in several times, this location is between our hometown and where my Mom lives. We generally plan our travel so that we end up at Skeet's just in time for dinner! They have great chicken... More

Even on their busiest weekend, the Sweetwater Rattlesnake Roundup, this restaurant staff showed true grit when faced with an overwhelming challange. Due to sheer customer volume this restaurant sold out of several items but service help continued with true country charm. The food was excellent and that is probably why it sold quickly. We would like to try this place... More
