This is the place for breakfast, especially if you're hungry and want variety. We enjoyed a very good meal at a reasonable price. Service is fast and efficient. I had the pancake sandwich - more than I could eat as it included three large pancakes, two eggs and four strips of bacon. As a seasonal offering, my wife ordered pumpkin... More

If you are looking for good old fashioned heavy breakfast, then you can't go wrong here. I'm a big fan of the chicken fried steak and gravy, my wife loves the corned beef hash.

Good place for breakfast, has lots of room so there is very little wait time even for larger groups. Food is classic fare with good daily specials.

The Cowgirl is a local chain restaurant. The food is pretty generic but always good and satisfying. The breakfast gets a great play. It is served hot, quickly and efficiently. There is no greasy spoon feel here. The restaurant is both clean and tidy.The staff is friendly and efficient.

Ate breakfast and had the breakfast burrito. It was a large burrito full of egg cheese and sausage. It came with a side of sour cream and hashbrowns. There wasn't anything really special about the taste. The portion size for what you pay though is nice. Service was decent and I have no complaints. Overall a enjoyable experience and I... More

Very good selection for breakfast. A bit on the expensive side - $10 for most meals. Very good food & excellent service. I would definitely go there again.

Don't order the pastrami on rye. I was with three other friends, and they reported that food was just fair. With lots of restaurants in town, no reason for me to come back here.
