“Old Time...”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Stopped here for a late afternoon lunch/dinner. Ordered the "fried steak" and what a huge portion it was (cowboy proportions)... mashed taters/gravy - texas toast and a salad bar (fairly standard faire) but housed in a covered wagon. The Grandma's buttermilk pie was delicious! Ck. out the saddle seats by the bar when leaving!

“Always excellent”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

I've eaten here since I was a little girl and no matter what you order, the food is always excellent for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The nachos and enchilladas are to die for, and the hamburgers are good too. You can't go wrong. The atmosphere is perfect for the Cowboy Capital of the World - OST stands for the Old Spanish Trail. I believe it is a historic site as well. The staff is very friendlly just like all of the people in Bandera.

“Cowboy up to the OST”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

We stopped in while roadtripping on Hwy 16 between San Antonio, Bandera and Kerrville. This is a good family place for breakfast or lunch. Service was prompt and friendly. The food was standard chicken fried steak, burgers, Tex-Mex and delicious pies. If you are a fan of cheese enchiladas - the kind that cover your plate in a sea of brown chili gravy with rice and beans - this is the place. The onion rings, buttermilk pie and apple pie were also very good.

“Neat but food average”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We went because we heard it was super old but the food was not so super. It was very average food with processed ingredients.
