I stopped at this restaurant last week on my way from Houston to Austin without knowing anything about it. We walked in and boy, were we surprised. Right off the bat you have to be okay with taxidermied animals staring at you while you eat. Some of the animals on the wall are of the same variety as the meat on your plate. Personally, I was fine with it and enjoyed the experience.
As I mentioned earlier, there are animals everywhere -- on the wall, on empty tables, and standing upright handing out mints at the door. It wasn't overtly dirty, but looked as though the place could use a good deep scrubbing. The decor looked as though it had not been updated since 1975 and some of the animals looked as though they also had seen better days. My family enjoyed looking at Mr. Mikeska's vanity wall with celebrities.
Everyone was nice. The owner was on site and made an appearance in the dining room.
My kids had the BBQ sandwich and fries. It was good and reasonably priced. My husband and I had the BBQ plates, which I thought were a bit pricy for what we got. It was good and certainly satisfied my growling tummy, although I can't say it was anything special. The food is served cafeteria style and we were able to refill our drinks as needed.
Will I be back next time I'm in the area? Probably -- I give it a 6.5 out of 10.
