“Best darn pies anywhere”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I eat here often and the service is great and the food is even better. You just have to try the fried pickles... If you like home cooking you will love the Texan.

“Unfriendly”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

The older guy with the mohawk was very rude from the moment we walked in. He didn't wait on us but it didn't matter because the waitress was only a slight bit better. The food is average. I wouldn't go there again.

“Don't go here for TV!!”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Recommended by the hotel clerk, this establishment didn't fail to impress. For those of us from outside the US, this is nearly as close as you will come to "eating Mom's cooking at home". Nothing over fancy, just good honest fine fare, homely style.

A very busy place which must speak volumes about what they think of this slice of old fashioned hospitality. Food was good, plenty of it, good service even considering its was nearly a full house most of the time we were there (7-8pm)

Like the idea of no TV !!!!

“OMG - German chocolate pie. Awesome!”
Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

Chicken fried steak was real good. Sides were good as well. Huge portions so be careful because you will want something from the extensive pie list. Great little local cafe. Reminds me of my childhood. I'll be visiting here again real soon.
