Amazing! Our favorite place to eat in Port Lavaca, TX. Country food, country feel and country atmosphere..........Hurricane Harvey cause a great deal of damage, but they've rebuilt and back in business! Breakfast, lunch or dinner........No complaints!

They probably have some of the best hamburgers in Port Lavaca. Their onion rings are great, also. They are big and filling!! If you are looking for a good hamburger and onion rings, then go visit the Wagon Train.

Stopped for breakfast. Pancakes bigger than our heads. Way more than we could eat. Hubby and I could've split one pancake and still had leftovers. Powdered creamer for coffee/tea :( Bathrooms plywood and could use air freshener but clean. Friendly server. Good local spot.
