Large menu, good food and service. Sat in patio on a nice sunny day with family. Had the Grilled Chicken Salad and had a variety of cucumbers, tomato, sliced egg, but made all of head lettuce, no other leafy greens. Brother had Skillet Steak and he said it was really good.

Perhaps I'm getting too old to comment, but for the many times I have eaten here as a local I have become indifferent. The food is not bad, but I would say the service and general atmosphere is not as inviting as it has been in other years. I'm just saying its a place to eat, but not dine.

We ordered the Fried Chicken and I must say it was some of the best Friend Chicken we have had in a long time. Meal also comes with a crisp cold Salad and, a Side of your choice along with Garlic...

You definitely feel like you step into the past going to this place. They have a very good selection of meats with lots of comfort food type sides. Fast friendly service

Had dinner at Spunky Steer with friends the other night. We drove in from the desert and didn't think the experience was worth the drive. The steak was inexpensive, but a little tough and tasteless. very busy, loud place with no atmosphere. Won't return

Tony's is a local place we like to go to when we don't feel like cooking and we don't want to fight traffic to go anywhere. My husband LOVES the bacon wrapped Filet Minions and I like the New York Strip. They come out on metal platters sizzling from the grill. It has a homey atmosphere and the service is... More
