“Good Texas fare”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

A genuine hometown place with good service. The usual Texas fare of burgers, Mexican food (Tex-Mex), etc. Very affordable and well located on Main Street.

“Just OK”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

Salad bar was expensive and was nothing more than green salad. Service was good and friendly. The people are far better than the food.

“Plenty of feel-good down-home cooking”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

We just loved this restaurant located in the heart of the very small town of Bandera (population less than 1,000 people) located in the "cowboy capital of the world." OST stands for Old Spanish Trail. They had a pretty extensive menu and served breakfast all day. The salad bar was in a chuckwagon and there were about 8 or 10 seats along the counter if you wanted to eat at the counter instead of at a table. What was really nice about the counter seats was that they were saddles in case you wanted to "saddle up" to the counter to eat. We had breakfast since we arrived in Bandera around 11:00 am. The bacon was the best I've ever had. The side room, used for overflow customers, was used long ago as a horse barn and the walls were adorned with photos of John Wayne and Roy Rogers. The entire restaurant has a tin ceiling.

“Good Food”
Reviewed May 29, 2012 via mobile

Our party of 10 had breakfast there and really enjoyed it. Service was a little slow but considering the place was packed they did a good job. Enjoyed the Western decor. Would eat there again.
