The Cow Palace has been around for many years. My grandparents took me here as a kid where I would get the Enchiladas. The modest restaurant is a great place to eat. It is next to the area castle auction house.

We go every Friday night for catfish, beans, hush puppies, Cole slaw and iced tea. A great combination.

Good food and nice people! Great angus burger, patty melt and chicken quesadillas! Unique place and the meeting spot for locals. Reasonable prices added to the overall fun experience. Be prepared to blow your diet but worth it!
