I've eaten breakfast here and never been disappointed. I went old school for this dinner and had a delicious hamburger steak covered with onions, mushrooms and gravy. Wonderful! I love the western theme with beautiful saddles and pictures of their prize winning bulls! Service was excellent and it was a great time to go as they weren't busy. Plenty of... More

Came for breakfast, our first time to eat here. Service was incredibly slow--it took at least ten minutes just to get a coffee, 20-25 minutes to get our food (there were only two of us, and our orders were not complicated). The food, however, was very good. Biscuits were amazing! Just don't come here if you are in a hurry.

My wife and I have stopped here numerous times. Easy access off and back onto Highway 80. Restaurant is exceptionally clean and eat staff is friendly. Good steaks, pork chops, chicken fried steak or chicken. Prices are reasonable. The restaurant can be a little loud as there is a lack of sound absorbing items in he dining area.

Great steaks, clean and family owned. It is neat to walk out back and see the Martinez PBR bucking bulls grazing and see the photos and write ups on the restaurant walls. The zucchini is wonderful, and the lunch pork chops are tender, flavorful and there is a large portion.

It's been a couple of years since I've been there, so a friend and I went this week for lunch. I was disappointed and embarrassed because I'm the one who chose where to eat. While I was waiting for my friend on a bench near the front door, an employee began cleaning the windows with a LOT of windex. Some... More

Servive was good (but we were the only people in dining room). Building looks new and clean. But the food was so bland, no seasoning. Chicken had no taste at all. Salad was suppose to have cheese on it, had to look hard to find the 10 pieces (yes i counted). Expensive won't go back. my 5yo grand-daughter who loves... More

This was actually our third time to visit this restaurant. It is located on Hwy 80 heading eastbound between Dallas and Forney. Food quality and service has always been very good with reasonable pricing. Restaurant has a nice decor but because of the lack of upholstery and drapes combined with the tiled floor, noises do carry and it can get... More

Went there on Friday night early in the evening, which was the right thing to do, but we seated right away. Had the Ground Sirloin steak with potatoes and cream corn. Steak was done just like I had ordered it and the cream corn was delicious. My friend had the chicken fried chicken dinner and she said it was also... More

I have eaten here a few times and its always good. Fresh rolls, hot food, and beautiful building. This place is clean and peaceful. Large windows let you enjoy nature and grazing livestock from the air condition. The staff is nice and refill your drinks as needed. Great place to meet a group for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. These places... More
