Stopped here on our way to Santa Fe based on TA reviews. So glad we did! For ten bucks, including tax, we got the best fried chicken, pot roast, gravy, rolls, at least ten sides, drinks, and peach cobbler. Food is served at communal tables,...More

The folks at Fort Chadbourne told us to try this place, and we are SO happy they did! When locals in a small town tell you something is good, then they usually mean it. Driving by, most out of towers probably wouldn't stop and give...More

We always enjoy stopping by for lunch or dinner at Allens. The lunch environment is something not seen at most restraunts. It is family style dining, where you sit at the table with others and pass each other the food. You always meet new people,...More

Went there while in town for the rattlesnake roundup. Basic food (not much flavor)-definitely not what my grandma use to cook. Good tea. They were very busy, but very nice and attentive. Probably wouldn't go back though.

Odd to sit with strangers. Husband loves this place. Comfort food and a large variety of side dishes.

Delicious Food. Home style, you eat at the table with other people and pass the food like at home in the house. Buffet at night in the banquet hall is delicious too.

This was so much fun ..... sitting with strangers at a table loaded with comfort food. Nothing fancy -- yummy fried chicken and dozens of side veggies. Service was pretty good -- we did have to ask for tea refills and more chicken. Very reasonable...More

Buffet style fried chicken, family style with all the sides. You sit at a table with strangers and become part of the family. Peach cobbler to finish off the meal is included in the price. Always have one other entree besides the fried chicken. One...More

Obviously clicked on the wrong Allens. This is a Restaurant in Sweetwater Texas not a hotel and nowhere near a port.
