“Great food, service and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We've eaten here a few times, while staying at the La Quinta next door. The servers are awesome, the food tasty and filling. Prices are reasonable, with large portions. Nice relaxing atmosphere.

“Excellent again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

We went here for my birthday and had the prime rib, and it was excellent again. The others in our party had other steaks and they were pleased with their meals. My grandson's had the Cowboy Pizzas (individual pepperoni pizzas) and they both enjoyed their meals.

“good but nosiy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Cool hand lukes is a chian of steak house across central Ca. priced in
the mid $20's the food is good and plentiful. all meals come with bread and a pot of beans. steaks are quality meat and cooked well. My main complaint is the noise level...very often it's hard to hear the person across the table speaking. Ideally I'd give this 3.5 stars. If you're travelling through tulare and want a big meal it's worth stopping in.

“good steaks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

they have good steaks here - though they can be a bit pricy
fun western decor in the place too
the waitrons are good at attending to the customers and are able to articulate the menu choices without difficulty
