There is nothing fancy about this restaurant. The seating is basic with vinyl tablecloths. The food is what your grandma used to make on a budget. The food was inexpensive and wholesome. If in town try it.

We truly enjoyed the big hamburgers with all the trimmings. Friendly and helpful wait staff. Not your usual fast food place. Right across the tracks from the Eisenhower Museum.

The daily special of fish, salad, potatoes, and a dessert were just enough food when the server brought out smaller portions for the senior meal.

We stopped in to get drinks only as we had just looked around Old Abilene. Restaurant was not the cleanest although the bathroom wasn't bad. Not sure I'd want to actually eat here. I had a soda and my husband had a coffee. Can't mess that up I guess.

We didn't know until after placing our drink orders there was only a very limited menu to pick from. My fish was hard and very small portions without much taste.

We stopped at the Hitching Post based on a recommendation from a local. I have never been steered wrong by a local, until now. Normally, hole-in-the-wall diners have great food. Unfortunately, this was not our experience. The restaurant was dirty. I understand that there is no way to avoid a few flies indoors in the summertime. But this was over... More

We were referred here by the Eisenhower gift shop employee. Should have know to leave when you could not even count the number of fly's, the floor was sticky and tables dirty. We stuck it out and ordered - my teenagers will eat most anything and when they said the food was bad and thought they might even throw up... More

Comfortable casual restaurant. Good food, friendly staff and lots of shopping in the attached gift shop. Great for young and old alike. Lots of choices!

We stopped here to eat since it was right beside the old town museum. The food was good. We got the open faced hot beef sandwich and a chef salad. The hot beef was a little underwhelming in size but made up for it in taste. The half chef salad was just the right size for lunch and had crispy... More
