Cowboy Slims a wonderful spot in Uptown for drinks, the atmosphere of the glorious rooftop deck, and huge big screens for watching sports. Just don't eat there. I went into the experience with low expectations and I am not that picky about food. The best description of the dinner I experienced was it tasted like gas station food. Very bland,... More

Went to Cowboy Slim's with my wife on a Saturday night. Extremely vibrant atmosphere, very loud and very young. I would say the average age of the patrons was early 20's. So loud you had to yell to hear anybody talk. I guess my wife and I are a bit too old for this scene. If you're in your early... More

It was very crowded as expected. We managed to get a table which was great. They have a bar as well as waitresses to take orders

We met here for lunch, not really knowing anything about it. Just loved the decor/ambiance it provided. The food was very nice and lunch was great!

Came here with a colleague on a Friday night, was not overly packed, our waitress was great and we really enjoyed the drinks and food! I highly recommend checking this place out. Nice bar and TVs. Overall great atmosphere. I will be coming back when in Uptown.

It's a Wednesday night and I just came from Cowboy Slims. My pals have been raving about their $2.00 Wednesday burger special for months, so tonight I met them there for dinner. And let me say, it is one fine burger. Cooked the way I ordered it, and it came with a lightly toasted bun. Extras cost extra. My tomato,... More

Uptown area was pretty cool and this bar sits at the heart. Door staff were amenable to easy entry and we went straight in downstairs. Older crowd than many of the bars around this area but not old! Tried upstairs as well which is a cool open top area but it was rammed and not a lot of fun to... More

Burgers are pretty good, but otherwise this place doesn't have anything to really attract one. Bunch of drunk local old men at the bar. Another cowboy bar.

Just had drinks on the rooftop bar...didn't see anything we wanted to order on the menu. The bartenders were great and very much on top of taking care of their customers... OK place for a drink.

Good place before 9 pm to hang and have food and beers. Gets a little young and crazy after. If you like crazy young crowds it's the place to be in uptown.
