I researched this restaurant and the marks were high. We visited and it was not very busy. The service was very good and the waitress was very nice. The salad bar has superb taste. The entree also had great flavor. The dessert was my favorite.

We enjoyed our burgers for lunch but the staff was a bunch of sour pusses. Onion rings were good too.

Good restaurant in downtown Bandera; a local favorite. There is a large menu selection, and the servings are plentiful. Relaxed family atmosphere.
