We met friends in town that were finishing up lunch. I asked if the cobbler was fresh and was told it wasn't homemade but the pies were. We tried the lemon meringue and chocolate pie, both were delicious. I would go back.

My eggs, bacon, hash browns and biscuit were just average. If you like your hash browns crisp, be sure and ask. Mine were lumps of not quite cooked hash browns. My husband had the pancakes and they are large. Interesting taste, not sure what. Overall an average breakfast.

Good place for a burger. Fajitas are great! There is a room with all John Wayne pictures. Located on main street Bandera. Good place to have lunch or dinner after shopping and site seeing.

Look, Bandera Texas is really into fried food and this place is no exception although you can find some grilled items. The food is good, the service wasn't great but it wasn't awful, but I over heard the staff talking and they apparently had all worked a lot of hours the past few days due to a celebration in town....

We had breakfast here 2 mornings. The food was good and the service was great. 6 of us eat here on two different mornings and we had no complaints.

We found the food to be outstanding...only exceeded by the friendly service. This was our first stop on our first-time visit to Bandera. The hostess at the OST was extremely helpful with suggestions to area attractions, and with names/number of local Dude Ranchs. The restaurant has an amazing decor, was clean, and the served breakfast was very tasty.

The food was actually very good but would have been even better washed down with a beer, bizarrely they have a sit up bar but don't serve alcohol, what is the point then? We may have left but we had been advised to go here by the owner of our B and B, the chicken fried steak as he told... More

Mosey up to the bar and grab a seat on one of the genuine saddles. This is a fun place to visit. Our food was all good, ranging from burgers to nachos to chess pie. The onion rings were great. You'll have a good time in this Cowboy Capital restaurant.

The food here is good. Large portion but the service is slow. The night we were there they we also slow at refilling the salad bar.
