“Generous owner who supports the community.”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

Steve Artale, Hungry Horse owner, generously contributes to Kendall County and many nonprofits, groups, and benefits. Look for his name listed as a supporter for many fundraising events. You will see it often! I think he is a fine person, and I want support his business, but unfortunately I just don't care for the Hungry Horse. The portions are large, but generally very mediocre in flavor. There is nothing that makes me want to return. Standard Texas menu items like Chicken Fried Steak is better on I-10. Other fried offerings have been pretty greasy. Special salads have been goopy with odd combinations or poor prep. Most food seems like frozen or pre-packaged, and not house-made.Counter service is hit or miss in the nice category. Sometimes it seems like you are bothering them. I hope they have changed the coffee by now, if not, Hungry Horse serves Egberts - the most heinous, instant, brown-flavored water ever encountered. I poured over $4 of "coffee" on the ground. We don't have many "family home-cooking restaurants" in Boerne, and HH is certainly busy at lunch. I applaud the owner's community spirit, but wish his restaurant matched his generosity.

Four of us went for dinner. Talipia was good! We were all disappointed with vegetables which were not seasoned and practically tasteless .

“Great food, reasonable pricing, and friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed February 3, 2012

You wont leave hungry, ill tell you that much, looking at other reviews people are whining about cold food, bad waiters, and rude atmosphere. I SAW NONE OF THIS! The owner was friendly and approached in a jokingly manor which was appreciated, he seemed like he enjoyed being there. The food was cooked as it should be in Texas, and the portions where huge! I will be back again.

“Best Chicken Fried Steak in Texas”
Reviewed December 17, 2011

If there is a crowd it's worth the wait. Lots of food choices - healthy and not so healthy. Love the chicken fried steak. Staff are fabulous people.
