For the price you pay honestly you'd be better off going down the road to Texas Roadhouse for a better steak and much nicer service. I decided to take my mother there for her 55th Birthday because she has never been there. This was supposed...More

You go because of the billboard. The food is nothing spectacular. If you're looking for a great steak, try Saltgrass.

The Big Texan is exactly what you would expect. A little cheesy, really touristy and a lot of fun. We took the free limo service from our hotel to the restaurant and who doesn't want to ride in a 1980's Caddy limo with horns on...More

They have this down to a science. Bone in ribeye was outstanding. Tomato and onion salad excellent. Service prompt. Reasonable price and wonderful fun atmosphere. Worth the drive.
