All food is good but I will either get the chicken fry with onion rings, or a burger and rings. Rustic setting, great food.

Chicken fried steak pretty good. Great fries. Good service. Nice salad. Would come back. Can't get off site unless say more about restaurant. That's stupid

Both of our entrees were cool in temperature, perhaps because wait staff let them in kitchen while they conversed at front desk. However food would have been pretty bad warm. Took forever to get check. Was cheap though if that is main goal in restaurant.

Food was cold and flavorless. You can find bbq across the street that's more flavorful and delicious.

Mexican Ribeye off the chain great. Served on a hot skillet! Great flavor with just the right amount of 'kick'. Above average service! Truck parking available on site! Small place where looks are deceiving from the outside. Clean no flys from what I can recall.

We stopped here for dinner while passing through Merkel on I-20. The appetizer and meal were both great. We would stop here if passing through this area again.

I'm always pleased with my food. It is a very loud and poorly ventilated place. Their place has a "less rough" atmosphere. Some of the best onion rings around.
