Plenty of old timers frequent the OST, but you’ll see a bunch or tourists, too. When the food is this good, word gets around, and loyalty comes easy. Sit on a saddle at the counter instead of a bar stool. Revel in the wall-to-wall pictures...More

Breakfast is fair. Lunch buffet is fair. Chicken fried steak is fair. A lot of people eat here because of the location, but several other restaurants in the area are better, in my humble opinion.

Good food, quick service. Menu features Mexican. My favorite though was the peach cobbler. Photos on far wall are enjoyable, especially of a young John Wayne.

Good location right on US16, good looking western atmosphere, good service and good selection of meals. I thought the prices are a little on the high side but I'd probably stop by again while in town.

The hubs and I ate a late lunch here and it was pretty good. Not super wonderful but not bad. The fried shrimp is a good sized meal...salad bar was a bit limited.

Huge burger and great fried chicken. Friendly and priced right for singles or families. I would definitely stop there again when in Bandera

Interior bar reminds you of a western salon with a funky saddle bar and a John Wayne memorial room. Staff and guests are very friendly. Don't expect fancy food but this place serves down to earth home style dishes. We had a very good burger...More

I read somewhere that they are open 6 am to 9 pm which makes sense as they do serve breakfast and we have been in there at night around 7 and they were still hopping. They get pretty busy though so plan ahead! Not sure if... More
