Read about this place on another website, decided to check out. Very good. When we first pulled up outside of the building is not your usual modern restaurant, but the parking lot was packed so we figured, gotta check it out. So glad we did. The fajitas were fantastic. Be sure to order the Brown Cow Fajitas, they are served... More

This place is located on the access road to 287 on the southbound side. With less than adequate outside maintenance it looks like a place to pass by. However , the breakfast,served most the day is good. Fried eggs on request, pancakes, egg dishes, bacon, sausage, gravy, oatmeal, coffee all included in the under $8.00 price. The sauces are very...

I have been eating here every Tuesday with friends for the past 5 years. The service is outstanding and friendly. They go above and beyond to make sure you have a pleasant experience. The food is as good as being "home-cooked by Mom." No warmed-up Mexican fast food here!!

Yes, your lucky but you get good home town cooking at a very reasonable price. Of course chicken fried steak is worth stopping for.

I had the carne asada dish, I have never had the way it was prepared by Brown Cow. The meat was cut up and in a red sauce mixture with onions and peppers. I asked for corn tortillas and they were able to provide me some. The beef was tender and not overcooked. I felt for $10 this was a... More

I wouldn't have stopped here normally since it looks horrible on the outside but the reviews were good so I thought why not? The service was great and the food was good. It was really fast which made me wonder but I couldn't really find fault in the food or service.didnt like the tea.

The sour cream sauce is good on the chicken enchalidas. The queso is so-so, salsa is so-so. Not the best place to eat Mexican food.

Food was great. Recommend something they call a "stir-fry" which is like fajitas with additional vegetables grilled with the typical meat and onions. Served over a bed of Spanish rice. Very friendly and accommodating staff!
