Stayed across the street so we tried this place. Basic BBQ food, order at counter, take tray to table. Very friendly staff and welcoming. Shares space with a bar so we got drinks from there. Thoroughly enjoyed the singing cowboy that sang all country favorites. Wonderful soulful voice. Nice, easy, casual experience.

We were hoping for barbecue and found Calvin T's. The place looked a bit suspect because of the outside. It turned out to be just fine....the food was very good and the service although you pretty much serve yourself was good. The interesting things were the people you cold not have found nicer people. They were a husband and wife...the husband managed restaurant and the wife managed the bar. They gave us some great advice on places to see in the area and they were very sociable. Next door was a gift shop...we were able to purchase petrified rock by the pound..much cheaper than at the actual Petrified Park and most certainly cheaper than rock shops. Here again the people were fabulous...a couple of young girls who could not have been more friendly and helpful.

Food was good BBQ but not a large selection. Bar service was also available but you had to purchase bar drinks separately from your meal.

We shopped in the store and made our way to the restaurant. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The ribs were tender and tasteful. The coleslaw was fresh and juicy. The appletart and ice cream was yummy. They also had a nice entertainer that evening that did a great job.

This is an interesting place. There is indoor seating as well as outside. The outside area is set up like an old-west style main street movie set. The food was good. We had brisket which was delicious, along with a large helping of coleslaw which was very good. Beans which at first appearance look watery compared to most traditional baked beans were actually very good. The beans and plain sliced bread are self-service. The dinner is served cafeteria style. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and the music on the Friday night we were there. We will return again before returning home from vacation.
