Once you get over that this is a very touristy place, I think the food and beers are good. We enjoyed the complimentary limo service from our campground, with quick pick up from the nearby KOA. This is the 2nd time we’ve gone to the...More

I have stopped here a couple of times. Food has always been good, I actually had the same waitress both times. Polite, friendly and professional. The only thing that drives me crazy is that their butter is in these tiny single serve packages. You have...More

The food was good, but a bit pricey. The service was great. The theme and decor were very fitting for the Texas panhandle. The "gelato" was just ice cream. It was not that great and was way over priced. They brew their own beer and...More

Voted as the #1 Eating contest in America by Huffington Post.Voted as 1 of the top 10 places by Draft Magazine to drink a beer at.The list goes on and on. This place is full of action and what the Wild West was all about. 2,000 Square foot gift shop that even has a live rattlesnake in there. We have 12 Hand-Crafted beers made on site with a beer style to fit almost any beer drinker. From Raspberry Wheat to Whiskey Barrel Stout with Seasonal beers to fill in such as Oktoberfest Lager & Pecan Porter. Same Lee family for the last 54-years serving 3-generations of guests. Young man, We fed your grandfather! We're Glad your Here!
