I don't understand the attraction. The facility is a dirty, firetrap and appears as if Legionnaires would thrive in the ventilation system. I can't even imagine eating here. I don't understand why the city hasn't cited it as a health and safety hazard. We went...More

I have not been here since 2011, but I would love to go back. Even if it is only to see the flag of the USA covering the toilet instead of a door!! An evening to make you smile all the time.

If you want to see Austin history, this is the place to come. It's a dancehall/restaurant and people come to dance the Texas Two Step and other western dances and you can join in. Lots of fun.

Went mostly just to see an old Texas dance hall. Cool place but most of the people were older. Still fun to watch.

This place is a go-to if you love country western with down home folks that love the music and dancing. Its a shrine to the good ole cowboys and cowgirls.

I had no idea places like this still existed...and the fact that they do is a great thing! From the exterior it looks like an assuming little country bar, but when you walk to the back there's a huge dance floor and stage. We had...More

I have made reservations before for a birthday party. It just depends on the size of the party. Call them and I am sure they will take good care of your needs.
Are people under 18 allowed in??
