The price was too high for the tasteless food. My husband and I ordered Mexican meals. Both meals tasted like they came out of a can. We paid over $38.00 for our two meals and I left over half of it on my plate. Our friends were there also and said that they have never tried the Mexican but liked... More

this used to be a really nice place to go when it was on foothill. great place for steaks. now they've moved down to 3300 south and it's an entirely different restaurant. they serve Mexican food, pot pies, sandwiches, and prime rib. two in our party ordered Mexican food, it was awful. the pot pie had good vegetables, but horrible,...

I went and had a late lunch and tried the fish and chips. They are good but a little stingy with chips especially considering the bill of fare. The batter is not heavy like most places. There were many tables that needed busing. The décor is rustic, open and unpretentious. The only service provided was taking the order at a... More

My husband and I went to Cowboy Grub for the first time today. The woman that helped us was so sweet and helpful. I told her we had never eaten there before. Usually you order at the counter but she gave us a menu to take to our table so we could take our time deciding. She brought our drinks... More

If you're looking for some home style cooking look no more. Their roast beef sandwich is delicious. One negative is it takes some time to get your food. Wouldn't go here if you're in a hurry.

Great food, large variety, nice people and a great local flavor. You go back in time to homemeade food and a vintage feel.

I too mourn the loss of the old Foothill location-- went there since childhood. The ambience of the new location is completely different but some of the old favorites are still on the menu. Have been here 3 or 4 times since new location opened but now I only do take out. New dining area just seems too noisy and... More

I have not been to this new location and from the reviews I think I'll pass. But if you want to give it a try they are on the corner of a strip mall at 23rd East and 33rd South. The restaurant looked large. We heard there are cement floors (so noisy) and no booths. There is plenty of parking.... More

Do not go here. I ordered the macaroni soup and it was horrible. I sent it back for the salad bar which was okay but the lettuce made me sick. My daughter got the enchiladas and they were very greasy.

The new Cowboy is bland. The old restaurant at least had some flavor. The burrito I had was flat and had no spice. The good things on the old menu are gone and the atmosphere is non-existent. Anywhere else would be better.
