“This place is not good anymore”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

We tried this place again after not eating here for over a year. Now I remember why. The service is terrible. The menu is smaller. They no longer serve the filet. Boo! That was the best piece of meat they had. Ordered a club, it was full of fat. No sodas when we went. Another Boo! I was not the only table who's order was sent back. The quality of this place is not how it used to be. I know they redid this place, but the money should have been spent somewhere else. The original owner(Ralph) would be rolling in his grave if he knew how disgusting this place is now. Way to ruin a place that really used to serve such delicious food. I will never ever go back there again. Just because you add televisions doesn't mean food quality and service should go down. Oh and no paper towels in dirty restrooms. This place is done. It will never be what it was ever again. The money we spent for warm salad dressing and fatty steaks was horrible. 55.00 for a family of 4. Do not waste a dollar here . It is not worth it.

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

We happened to just pick this one out of the air as we were staying nearby and didn't know what is in the area. Good food. Quaint atmosphere. Watch the pricing though. The menu prices are deceiving as what the meals come with. Our bill ended up being about $15-20 more than we expected.

“Under cooked steaks/poor service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Took my husband for his birthday. They offer 25% off the meal on birthdays with ID. The salad dressing and salad was warm and tasted spoiled. Rolls were hard, menu is limited, and cashier is not very friendly. Didn't get a thank you at all. Waitress service was good, but she looked unhappy as well. Steaks were small and undercooked. I've been to this place before and it used to be good. I should've known better when I drove up there were very few cars. They got a bad review on KSAT-TV Behind the Kitchen Door.

“Good steaks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

Reasonable prices especially if you go on your birthday. They have great discount! Place is a little dated.

“Best Stakes in the Country”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

This is a unique Restaurant, the Waitress ware a cowboy outfit with guns and cowboy hats. There stakes are the best I have ever had. When you get there they sit you down on picnic tables with a salad in there hand. There own home made dressings are so good. I love the Garlic one. then the menus are on the walls all over the restaurant. You get a baked potato or FF. and your Stake that melts in your mouth. They have every kind of stake and they cook it to profection. I love the this restaurant.
