Quite the atmosphere of an old saloon with deer trophies, old Posters, Pictures and antiques. We shared the best burger in Texas that we had. Topped with fried onions and mushrooms & cheese and a salad for $2. More. Good portions so we shared.

Ordered the filet mignon. It was just awesome! And at a very fair price (only a few buck more than a burger!)
