we did the Big Texan, knowing it was very touristy but we had a blast, The steak was good, not great. But the atmosphere was worth the trip.

Steak was perfection. Baked sweet potato delicious. Ribs delicious. And they provided a limo ride from where we were staying to the restaurant and back (front desk of KOA made the arrangements). Would definitely tell anyone to come back here.
