“Go'in back in time.”

Ranked #1 of 5 Nightlife in Bandera
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 30, 2013

I've been going to Arky's Silver Dollar for over 20 years, and every time I go in there, I'm taken back to the real Cowboy and rodeo days. Most of the men you see in there are real working ranch hands. Rough looking, but with a good heart. I can't help but sit there and watch the look on the tourist faces when they come in. They are nervous in the beginning, but in no time they are having a hoot. The regular's are alway's asking you to partake in the food they usually have on week ends. It's really Texas when you visit. They always say, Ya'll come back to see us when yor in town. Great people there.

Been in and out for years. Liked it better when I was 40. It has an interesting ambience but could do with a little cleaning and Arky has a foul mouth around women at times.

It's a bar. It's a pool hall. It's a dance hall. It's just a slice of what a real bar should be. There isn't a fern in sight. The jukebox plays the best music and the beer is cold and plentiful.

Arkey Blues is what a Texas honky tonk should be. this is definitely an original. Good music, cold beer and enough atmosphere to make the moon inhabittable. A must see in Bandera.

Stopped by for a Lone Star. It was early afternoon/late morning so the place was empty except for 3 patrons (Arkey, Hoot Gibson and another gentleman.) This place is a dive and awesome. They even had Lone Star light. Hoot Gibson introduced himself and let me tell you he's a HOOT! Definitely stop by for a beer.
