SW Chili is the real deal. Pictures on the wall of "Cowgirls" is like being in a museum. Good food and good value.

Went to lunch with my wife and had one of the best meals I've had all year (we are locals). I had the mahi mahi fish sandwich with fries (homemade, among the best in town) and my wife's dish was great too. Have been here in the past and always a good choice.

Always a favorite, the Cowgirl serves up a great, varied menu. Scallops were divine, the BBQ is great, and southwestern/Mexican is always a good choice. Great atmosphere, with a wonderful patio if the weather is right. Live music on the weekends. What's not to like? I recently tried the Posole, and the squash casserole is a signature dish. Always crowded... More

Great food! Fun place! Crowded on the weekends with bands playing. Try the butternut squash casserole, very different and delicious! Also the roasted garlic appetizer was very good too! Go enjoy BBQ and have fun!

It was a Sunday night, my first night in town, couldn't decide between Southwestern or BBQ. I ended up with BBQ sampler, ribs, chicken and brisket. The brisket was good. I wasn't a huge fan of bbq sauce. I couldn't taste too Mcdonalds of smokey flavor on anything. Now, salsa Diablo, I did taste that. Very good, I will go... More

2nd time weve been here and this year we werent so pleased. We were seated outside of where the bathroom was and the door would open as we were eating. Had to ask patrons to close door after use! Not appetizing! Bbq sauce was a little spicier than we remembered and food was just okay! Probably will not return.

Late afternoon. Medium rare cowgirl burger - perfectly made. Piping hot fries on the side. One of the large selections of draft beers to wash it down. Hit the spot. Just right. Good service and value in an otherwise very overpriced town.

Saw this as we were heading from town, and decided to stop. So very glad we did! A wonderful time! It seems to go on forever with absolutely something for anyone and everyone: outdoor seatings, pool tables, bar, dining room, even an enclosed kids' play area! The tables and floor were meticulously clean, the staff fun and friendly, and food... More
