Great atmosphere, a lot of small details to make you feel western. A lot of fresh meat in different varieties. Professional service

Kinda disappointed. The onion pedal was over done and greasy. Think oil got too hot or needed to be changed. Steak was good, however I ordered it medium and it came out more on the rare side. Better that was then over done.

Be prepared to enjoy peanuts at your table and ample servings of fresh, hot delicious food. The steaks are great, catfish is great and all the sides are very tasty. The place is noisy and plays country music. It is FUN!

There can be a wait at this site, but adults can check to see if there are seats at the bar. Love the grilled chicken salad and, of course, the ROLLS.

We went on a Sunday morning at 11:30. Then the crowd started pouring in. Great Big burgers. Rib eye was cooked perfect. Grilled BBQ chicken was tender. Hot buns with Cinnamon butter. Yummy. I had a root beer on a bottle(made in the Almana Colonies.)
