Just ate there for first time over the weekend-. They had a small, but terrific buffet with fried chicken, meatloaf, salads, & desserts. Can also order off the menu. Not much to the outside, but inside are friendly faces & good food..

I admit it. I did not want to eat here but it sounded good to my skinny husband and so I said yes. We were camped at Fort Richardson and came into town (right around the corner) for the day. Yes the salad was iceberg and the pea salad needed frozen green peas instead of canned, plus some seasoning. But... More

Visited for breakfast rather than cook in the rain at the park. Service was fast & friendly. Coffee was good as was the food. Good prices.

We stopped by the Green Frog for lunch before visiting the nearby Fort Richardson State Park. The Sunday buffet was great, the Pork Loin was seasoned just perfectly, and they had both fried chicken and chicken fried chicken available. There was enough other choices on the buffet for all, along with several desert choices. They also have a menu to... More

While visiting the Jacksboro area, we happened upon the Green Frog for breakfast. It has a short, basic menu that is no frills. Their white gravy is flavorful and their egg club is a solid choice. There were 6 people in the restaurant when we were there and it took about 20 minutes to receive our order. Not great, but... More

Not much to look at outside or inside but the food is amazing. You can't go wrong if all the locals eat there. On the day we were there you could order off the menu or from the buffet. They had the traditional salad bar, then chicken fried steak with all the fixins or chicken tenders (that were amazing). Deserts... More

Stopped here after leaving Fort Richardson State Park headed north to Amarillo. I highly recommend this place if you are ever in Jacksboro. Had a great little buffet with fresh salad, great fried pork chops and chicken fried steak. Fresh veggies too! Staff was friendly and prompt service even though busy.

My whole crew loved this place. Food was tasty and great buffet selection. Lots of history in the restaurant. My parents ate there on their honeymoon in 1951.

The first thing that impressed me were the people that worked there were very friendly. The food was terrific. The hot rolls were like my mother or aunt would make soft and flavorful. They had three different meat, Chicken Fried Steak, Fried Fish and BBQ0 Sausage. It was all good. A large selections of salads and vegetables to go along... More

I ate her a couple of times in high school because it's where my coach liked to stop, and the last time I stopped in was because of the trainer my work brought in.

I'm so sorry you and your groups have had bad experiences. Do you know of any one thing the whole group would have eaten the same time? I wish you would have called at the time of the incident so we could investigate and remove the problem when it occurred. My husband and I have been owners for 6 years... More
