Started that had to wait 45 minutes for food to come when this small restaurant was not even full. Seems that people who kept coming in to pick up ordered food via phone had priority to those seated. When finally the "steak"came with "melted Camember and roasted nuts", the meat was as hard and tough as i would imagine a... More

The service is slow, and the food is seriously mediocre. The onion rings are a joke, just a crushed onion with splattered battered, not exactly the consistency that I expected. The rocky cheeseburger was below average. The bacon was charcoal, the patty hard, and the bun was dry and crumbling. My friends had the steaks, so perhaps that was a... More

If you want to eat at this restaurant then be sure to book in advance, and I don't mean on the day but maybe even a week prior (especially for the weekend). The restaurant has a great setting, that Texan ranch kind of feel, and the food is simply gorgeous. A little expensive, but definitely still in the affordable range.... More

The restaurant is little further from the city centre but well worth the walk or bus ride (10A). the portions are huge and everything is tasty, especially the meat! the staff are knowledgeable and friendly and the ambience is simply original!

and I don't mean vegetarians! The menu features meat next to meat, and that's awesome! Not a steakhouse, so only one sort, but perfect spareribs, soft and easy to separate from the bone. It's Wild West themed, complete with prison cell bars. The service is qucik and friendly, something that is often lacking in Vienna if a lot of customers... More

Without doubt, its the best steak in all of Vienna. We eat here once a month and every time its outstanding. Its got a strange American layout with a little jail cell to eat in and cowboy art. So many traditional western American side dishes - corn on the cob, corn bread, beans, hash browns, and on and on. Its... More

When my family and I were in Vienna we really wanted a nice steak and went on TripAdvisor to find a nice place. We found this restaurant and with all the great reviews we thought we should absolutely try it. My husband called them and was told that they did not have anything before 8.30 pm, which is a little... More

Please consider that this restaurant is not in the US. Located in one of the western suburbs of Vienna it provides a unique setting for dining out. From what I know decoration originates in the US. There are various dining rooms: jail, sheriff's office and a rustic cabin style dining room. A lot of different steaks to choose from and... More

Staying in Ottakring

Neighbourhood Profile
Ottakring
The production site of popular Ottakringer beer brews up an exciting mix of working and middle class suburbs, Balkanese immigrant lifestyles, and lush patches of hilly woodland. The recently gentrified area around Yppenplatz and Brunnenmarkt boasts hip cafés and bars next to South East European delicacies at Brunnenmarkt street market. The dynamics of Ottakring become most apparent at its vibrant high street Ottakringer Strasse. At the top end you can feast on wine and local food in Austria’s oldest wine tavern 10er Marie. The wines are from the tavern’s own urban vineyards. Before you head upwards, make sure you pay a visit to the historic courtyards between Lerchenfelder Gürtel and Hippgasse. When locals visit Ottakring’s hilly green outskirts on the weekends they either climb up 31 meters of Jubiläumswarte viewing tower on Gallitzinberg, have a succulent Wiener Schnitzel at Villa Aurora, or reward their hiking exertions around Wilhelminenberg with a drink and a view from Wilhelminenberg Palace (now a hotel and restaurant).
