This place was formerly the Prairie House - but same people for the last 20 years or so. We've eaten here a number of times while visiting family in Keller. We've always gotten good service, good food and drink, in a 'frontier shack' setting, lots of antique 'stuff' decorating its wooden walls. We prefer to choose a booth. The menu is classic American, with good meat and fish choices. Roanoke advertises itself as the 'Unique Dining Capital' of Texas, which must hack off Ft Worth, Austin and a lot of other places! But this one is in our view a keeper.

Classic southern menu with BBQ, Grilled and fried meats and fish. The grilled pork chops and the bomb! Another fav are the Banditos - chicken wrapped in jalapeno, cheest and bacon, grilled and brushed with bbq sauce - addicting.

Western barn wood and rusty farm implements kinda let you know that you're in for a kitschy experience, but that's okay. An endless supply of perky, friendly, college-aged kids will be showing you to your seat and slapping down menus for ya, as well as grabbing those cold beers and setting' down more Ranch dressing for ya.
Menu hasn't changed in over a decade, but it's the tried and trueTexas favorites: fried jalapeño strips ("Texas toothpicks") and chicken fried ribeye, along with baby back ribs, and then the Friday night prime rib. The seasonings could use some updating, but what you see is what you get, a basically good experience with snappy, spot-on service, family friendly, couples friendly (just short of dog friendly), and don't worry if you're wearing overalls. Keep the wood bench booth snags in mind and don't wear that strappy satin dress; stick to jeans and cut offs.
Overall a pleasant enough place. If you're looking for the Texas country kitchen, this is the place.

Wife and I had been meaning to stop at this quaint place for a long time, and finally made it there today for lunch. We had seen it under the old name (Prairie House) but it is now Reno Red's. We had the "Banderos" appetizers (chicken and shrimp wrapped), fried pickels, and we had the Gulf Shrimp and the Grilled Chicken Salad. The food was excellent, and the smoked aroma filled the restaurant. We also enjoyed the iced tea served in Mason Jars.

The atmosphere is very rustic and western. The service was outstanding (Jennifer was our server). We will definitely be going back there for dinner so we can try the steaks. You will not be disappointed if you give them a try.

This is one of my favorite places for steak & potato. It has changed name and is also called "Reno Red's Frontier Cooking". On highway 377 through Roanoke, TX. Burger or steak - either are good. It's a little rustic here - not real fancy - but guality (not quanity but you get a good size meal) of food counts more for me. Service is great and preperation speed usually about right. Time to chat a little and drink a coke out of a fruit jar. There is two sides to the resturant - facing as you go in and meet the receptionist the Left door is for smoking (I believe) and the right is for non-smoking (that's where we go). Considering todays fast food prices - this is not so bad.

Reno Reds is not affiliated with Prairie House. Please be careful to read the sign and menu as name has changed.
