My grandparents took me here as a kid. Still a family favorite. It will fill up quickly at lunch. Food and service are great. Come with an appetite.

We had a difficult time finding the restaurant. It is NOT where the map says it is. It is located just two blocks west of the 90 and 183hwy intersection.
The food was really good. We both ordered the chicken fried steaks--they were delicious. Choice of homemade frys or a baked pototao and salad bar. Everything in the salad bar was fresh. When you go to the restrooms, you can hear the cattle mooing in the pens behind the restaurant... my husband thought at first it was recorded sounds since the name of the place is COW PALACE. LOL.

We drive through Gonzales frequently on our way to Austin; this was our first trip to Cow Palace. We will definitely return.

Our chicken fried chicken lunch specials arrived quickly. The portions were generous & tasty and the price was right. It even came with dessert!

Everything we have ordered here is great. Fish, burgers, & shrimp I highly recommend. I know it looks iffy bc it is at the sale barn but you will enjoy it just try it. Type of food: soup salad, hamburgers, fish, a little tex mex, oh and breakfast has a huge selection as well. Service can get a little slow if busy. They only have two waitresses.
