Visited Li'l Abner's Steakhouse in a party of 10 without a reserve. Nevertheless, they had great hosts and took them 15 mins to arrange a table with wheelchair access for us. I tasted a little bit of all dishes served. I stongly recommend to order the Cowgirl Steak, once that the Cowboy is just huge and you will not be... More

The restaurant serves "cowboy" food featuring steaks and beans. Had a great time with the live music but found the prices to be surprisingly high.

The steaks were very good. We both ordered the 8 ounce sirloins and they we done perfectly. Dinner came with a nice salad, delicious texas toast and beans that were just ok. The atmosphere was like a cowboy saloon but with license plates everywhere. Lots of outdoor seating and you can watch your steak being grilled. For us...two thumbs up.... More

We almost missed this great place. I'm SO glad we didn't. I had the ribs and my husband had a steak. We loved the bleu cheese dressing on our salad, the homemade beans and Texas toast. My ribs were delicious and fell off the bone. My husband's steak was full of flavor. Oh, and the premium margarita was excellent.

Wanted to try something different, so we went to this place. The ribs were not bad (not much smoke flavor), but tender and fell off the bone. My brother-in-law had a filet mignon, which looked tasty (he said it was cooked perfectly). The rest of us had ribs and sides (beans and/or corn on the cob and salad). Good meal.... More

Don't try to figure out the price because they won't tell you until the bill comes. No prices on the menu either. They must think they're a fine dining place. The steaks aren't great and the atmosphere isn't either. Will never go back.

Fantastic steak and Texas toast! Toast, beans and salsa is all you can eat. Desserts are good, but disappointed that they ran out of cobbler. Live music was great. Good ambiance and service. Our friends are local and frequently go here.

The place is a very rustic SW cowboy style with mostly outdoor seating and a very limited menu. If you don't like meat, this is not the place for you. If you want a hearty steak dinner, this may be the place. It is a bit spendy. The service was very good. Free cowboy western band on weekends. They open... More

Ribeye steak was great. Relaxed atmosphere, staff super friendly. A true western steakhouse with a long history.
