Everything about this place was amazing. The food was great, our waitress was super nice. We will visit again if we are in the area. We loved the rocky mountain oysters.

We ate dinner here with our three kids. The food was mediocre at best. Nothing explicitly wrong with the food, just expensive for something so blah. If I pay $30 for a steak, I'd like it to be flavorful. The baked potato had more flavor...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!
