The service is slow, the quality of the food is definitely not there. The chicken fried steak looks like it was bought frozen and cooked. I don't even think it is using real cube steaks. It was very bland. I will never go there again. Thanks but no thanks

The food here is wonderful and generous portions. The service is always good, as well. Sometimes there is a wait, but that is because it is worth waiting for.

I went to this restaurant for breakfast on a Friday with my father and a friend. I thoroughly enjoyed my eggs, sausage, hash browns, and toast. My eggs and toast both came out exactly as requested and were as good as any I have had at any restaurant. The friendly staff were quick to refill my coffee and answer every... More

We had brunch at Cowgirl Cafe on Sunday as a group of 6 ppl. Everyone was pleased with the cleanliness, service, and the food. It was not crowded at all- maybe due to the Mid State Fair. I love their home fries!! You can also pick up orders if you order over the phone, but I have never done that.

So fun! Well done with my omelette, tons of bacon. Friendly staff. Seems like a winner in all respects. Local charm and flavor. Lots of people here on a Sunday! Some specials but overall you won't be disappointed!

Went here because of the reviews. The service is fast and friendly. Food for breakfast is just what you ask for. If you ask for something different no problem. Coffee is kept topped off. I will go back and try one of the omelets they looked really good. I wish they would have flavor coffee creamers. We had the 2... More

I love this place. The cowgirls are all feisty and in good humor. Not cheap but well worth it. My brother in law and I go there often. Never had a complaint. In fact, we go there so often I think they're going to make our meal free next time.
