Both of our entrees were cool in temperature, perhaps because wait staff let them in kitchen while they conversed at front desk. However food would have been pretty bad warm. Took forever to get check. Was cheap though if that is main goal in restaurant.

Food was cold and flavorless. You can find bbq across the street that's more flavorful and delicious.

Nice staff, food prepared well. I had take out. Close to freeway for good access, near many hotels. Recommended to me by locals and they were right.

Stopped for quick lunch traveling through on interstate and was pleased with food and service. Glad we arrived before 11:30 as it was getting full by the time we left at noon. Quick service and food was excellent. Fried pickles were a treat. Husband had beef fajita salad and the beef was some of the most tender and best tasting... More

Mexican Ribeye off the chain great. Served on a hot skillet! Great flavor with just the right amount of 'kick'. Above average service! Truck parking available on site! Small place where looks are deceiving from the outside. Clean no flys from what I can recall.

We stopped here for dinner while passing through Merkel on I-20. The appetizer and meal were both great. We would stop here if passing through this area again.

I'm always pleased with my food. It is a very loud and poorly ventilated place. Their place has a "less rough" atmosphere. Some of the best onion rings around.

I live just out of Merkel and have eaten at Skeet's lots of times. The food is always good, hot and fresh. The burgers are very good, the meat is not frozen and the bun is fresh. It has a country look. At lunch or supper it is always full. It is one of those places that you say, is... More
