A lot of things (the decor) to look at while eating your meal. Food servings were plentiful and good. After dining you can walk-off your meal by taking in the history walking through the variety of exhibits in the Texas Ranger Museum.

Today we visited the buckhorn saloon and Texas ranger museum. We ate lunch and enjoyed the tours. This is very unique with a lot of history. The people were very nice and helpful. The amount of stuffed animals is amazing.

I remember this being at the Lone Star brewery so I had to see it in its new location. It was better than I remember. More exhibits including Texas Ranger History and curiosities section.
