My family and I went to Deutschlander and I absolutely loved it! From the great food and the great service to beautiful setting, this is indeed a nice place to go! From catfish to chicken fried steak, we were trying a bit of everything. Mozzarella sticks, hush puppies, the best fried battered onion rings I have had in a while,... More

The Ribeyes are usually cooked perfectly, rare and med rare is the way our large family orders. We had a visit there recently where they were a little overdone, but they still tasted pretty good. USUALLY they get West Texas Style spot on, deep brown on the outside for big flavor and cool or warm red centers for tender sweetness!... More

Visited for a late lunch for Father's Day. Fish is cut into chunks, so there's lots of crunch. Always add one to the number in your party to get the proper serving size in the "fish for __" unless you're just not that hungry. Baked potatoes are large. The fish does NOT taste 'fishy.' Lemon slices are served with the... More

Catfish is delicious. We started off with onion rings that were wonderful. Lightly battered and perfectly fried. Giant baked potatoes. Wonderful outdoor beer garden. This is a great place for summer dinning an large portions. The waitresses are very friendly and caring.

Dined here by default. My first choice was too busy. I thought the food was average at best and over priced. I will not return.

I lived in Abilene for several years and this place was always a must! Buffalo Gap is just a few miles south of Abilene. The catfish is fresh and tender and the cheese sticks are the best you will ever eat. The service is awesome and the price is right! The jalapeno hush puppies are a surprise! If you are... More
