I came in on a Friday evening and only had to wait about 5 minutes. The staff was super friendly and not only is there a "rig" outside with the sign, there's one inside, too and the decorations are very local. I ordered the Butterflied Chicken with mashed potatoes and broccoli. That was the juiciest chicken I've ever had, the... More

While working in Denison, TX, I was looking for a hearty, stick-to-your-ribs kind of meal. The lunch menu at North Rig fit the bill, so I gave it a shot. The country fried steak was huge, and the flavor was above average as well. Prices were reasonable, and the service was friendly, albeit slow at times. I'd definitely go back... More

We ate at North Rig and had a great experience. Both meals were great. The steaks were cooked perfectly. Our waitress was delightful, very attentive and helpful. Our only complaint was that the bar area was smoking and it reeked pretty badly. We thought about going in for an after dinner drink, but headed for the car instead.

We had never visited and was unsure what to expect. The food taste and quality was fantastic. The service was fast and prompt. We go to Denison on business and will be back!!!

Great atmosphere. Bar area is great for watching the game or visiting with friends. Only downside is that they do allow smoking in the bar. Ruins the whole thing.

Delicious food, low prices and friendly staff.... a winning combination! It was my first time eating here and it certainly won't be my last!!! I ordered the chicken friend chicken and was thoroughly impressed with the promptness of service and portion size. I must admit the food was well seasoned, so it tasted like the home cooking I know and... More

I had a filet that was cooked perfectly, with some tasty onion rings and a nice cole slaw. My wife had the butterflied chicken, and it arrived blackened, as she ordered. She raved about the fried okra. The service was friendly and observant, ready to take a request. The place has a down-home feel, and while we were there a... More

Have eaten here several times and usually there is not a problem. One would not think on a Monday night there would be, either, but with 2 large parties, the waitstaff ignored small parties. I love the steaks here, the food is GOOD, but if the servers are short that night, I don't know that I'll do that again. The... More

Fair to medium food, the grilled catfish was pretty disappointing, their flavor was ok and cooked fine, but were just 3 small strips vs a side or fillet of a fish. Veggies were fine. Grilled veggie appetizer of mushrooms, zucchini and pickles was good on the mushrooms and zucchini but the pickles were sliced too thin and were mostly greasy... More

Went to dinner and had a wonderful waitress serving us. Good is good, but it comes out too fast! Do recommend, but don't order anything except your main course!
