If you want a great steak while in Odessa, this is the place to get it. The service was great and it had a great atmosphere. Be prepared to spend a little money though, but the food was well worth the money. I hope my travels bring me back this way again!

Ordered a 10 oz ribeye (Lunch Special ) first, for lunch and it was $18...second it came out with more fat than Oprah, lastly, it tasted as if it had been rolled in cilantro, fajita marinade and coated with sugar and salt before it was cooked. The green beans tasted odd as well. The baked potato and salad bar were... More

Lots of food for the price, entrees come with salad bar and portions are generous for the price. Don't get large chicken fry it will hang over the giant plate

We have been here 4 times in the last month and have enjoyed it every time. No problems with service or food. The sirloin solders were wonderful. The breading on the mushrooms is unique, crisp and a repeated item. I like them dipped into the honey mustard dressing.

My co-workers and I visited. It took a while for us to be served. The food was simply okay and the service was not all that good. I tried the jumbo shrimp and it was enough to be shared.

We went to Sid and Sam's specific for Prime Rib. Our prime rib came out looking like a New York strip. When I asked the waitress she said it was the end pieces. I didn't want a steak, I wanted Prime Rib. All you Prime Rib fanatics, this place will be a big disappointment. The Prime Rib was served on... More

A true hidden gem in the Odessa area. Sweet tea is super good, all appetizers are excellent, anything with chicken are steaks you can go wrong and you get salad/soup bar. Go to location off County Road West and University Blvd

This visit was specifically to have Filet Mignon with Fettucine. We had it about a year earlier and dreamed of coming back. This time it was terrible! They susbstituted the cheap, watery spaghetti in place of the Fettucine. It was very disappointing!! I called back to speak to the manager. I was put on hold. I was then asked what... More

We found the menu to be very expensive, but the steak was very good. The salad bar is very limited, but adequate. The stew was very salty, and the service was poor. Our server took our order, and then we never saw her again, they said she had to leave, but when we sat down she was asked if she... More

A lot of great businesses have been made here because it has the perfect atmosphere to make deals. The food is great plus a wagon salad bar it's the place to be. Great steaks! Prices are not to high
