This place is located in the middle of residential area away from the busy main street. If you know the place, you can find it. Street parking in small alley. Food is good and all the deco is Texan style with staff wearing cowboy hats. Good Kebab with different meat of your choice. Service is good. It is little bit... More

Good atmosphere, slightly surreal to find a rodeo style western bar in Addis. We went midweek, it was not that crowded, I expect that the bar area is busy at the weekend and will be lively. The food is mainly steaks or kebabs. My friend and I ordered beef kebab. It tasted quite gamely at the time but didn't think... More

Compared to other places in Addis Ababa, both food and drinks are overpriced here. While the ambience of quite OK as is the service, the food really suck and gave my freind the morning runs, The owner says that he before lived in Texas but this bar would make a Texan run fast to reach south of Loredo.

The service is great. The prices a little high, especially for Addis. The food is good, but not the best. I prefer dinning outside, so this is has that option. The decorations are all "Texan". Ok, this sounds weird, but one of the ways I judge a restaurant is the bathroom. This one is very clean and very nice. It... More

This bar and restaurant has an interesting character. I am not familiar with cowboy culture but the decor and staff outfit is interesting to say the least. Their burger is acceptable. The staff are friendly and service is quick. You can either sit at the bar enjoy your drinks or sit by the fire for a relaxing evening. Whatever you... More

This place is not bad once in a while but is very pricey and can be tricky to find. Parking can become an issue.

Rodeo is bar and restaurant which is decorated like an old cowboy hangout. They have a full bar which stays open fairly late into the night. The place is very lively where you can meet lots of fun loving people

You are greeted by a gentleman in a Texas Longhorns jacket and it only gets better from there. I love the atmosphere here. Arrive after 7 so you can watch the American music videos on the big screen. Food is good. Very diverse menu. The service is awesome.
