We waited almost minutes for our drinks. Then another 10 for our waitress to come back and take our order. I ordered a baked potato and my husband ordered a ribeye and mashed potatoes with gravy. After another 25 minutes our order comes out. My potato was tiny (not small, tiny) and cold. My butter wouldn't even melt on it.... More

That's right....You can sit at the bar on a saddle with a cold beer or if it is breakfast you are welcome to serve yourself coffee, well used by the local cowboy coffee clutch. Chuck-wagon salad bar was ready to be set up for lunch. Wish we had been there for a 14oz ribeye steak under $20.00. Open 6a-9p....you better... More

After living in the Hill Country for over 15 years, I'd never eaten at the OST; a week ago I decided to have breakfast there. I love pancakes; I ordered a stack and couldn't resist the biscuits and gravy. The pancakes were excellent--and huge! You'd think that pancakes that size would weigh you down; conversely, they were light and fluffy.... More

This is where the locals go for down home cooking. There is a noon buffet and children or the young at heart can sit on the saddles to enjoy their meal.

Googled for good Chicken Fried Steak in Bandera and OST (Old Spanish Trail) came up with pretty good reviews, so I tried it. CFS wasn't bad at all, but not really "outstanding" either. Salad bar was OK as were the green beans. OST is just a reasonably priced family restaurant with a "cowboy, western" theme.

We had a rather large group on a Sunday morning. The place was packed! Still, we were able to get an adequate table with friendly and prompt service, without feeling rushed.
