“BEST Chicken Fried Steak!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

I have been here many times and will always come back to Bert & Kate's. Absolutely the best chicken fried steak I have ever had. They are huge, but so good you will find yourself eating it all. Hand-breaded every morning. They take pride in their service and food. The burger with ham & cheese is delicious, and the onion rings here are superb. Can't go wrong for breakfast or lunch. Wish they served dinner.

“Best biscuits and gravy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

Kate is so sweet - shared her home grown tomatoes and peppers with us too! She told us some awesome stories - pix on the wall of original homeowner and past patrons. She cooks, waits, cashiers - all of it! Her food is fresh, great quality, and full of love!

“Gem of a restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

I recently enjoyed a fantastic breakfast at Cattleman's while traveling through Riggins on vacation. Believe me....you never know what to expect when on long road trips, but this was a welcome treat! The menu offered multiple options, but I ordered standard breakfast fare: Eggs, ham, potatoes, toast and orange juice. Kate did it all -- took my order, cooked the food, and handled the bill. A whirlwind of energy, she also chatted with the customers. The food: Excellent. I enjoyed Kate's homemade bread and apricot jam. Where else can you get such star treatment? I love fresh and delicious meals, and will surely return to Cattleman's again.

“Down Home Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

We love this place - try the French Toast: it melts in your mouth. Conversation is lively, breakfast is the tastiest in town. These ladies are busy, busy, busy and the reason is that everyone knows this is the only place to be!

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

We recently had two delicious meals at the Cattlemen's Restaurant in Riggins. We stopped in on our way to Boise and then stopped again on our way home. The food was carefully prepared using fresh ingredients and the homemade breads were outstanding. We enjoyed hearing some of Kate’s stories and were impressed with her commitment to providing healthy food to the community. Thanks, Kate, we’ll definitely visit again whenever we’re in town.
