We were back in Abilene KS, again searching for a decent burger joint. The grill master knows his stuff here. Regular made-to-order cheeseburger stood 6" high. Served with fries, but I recommend the (done right) onion rings! Full plate salad also looked satisfying. Friendly efficient wait staff. 11A-10P. Will eat here again.

Full parking lot over lunch was a good sign and we were not disappointed. Large menu of classics and some creative additions. We ordered the Hamburger, Cajun Steak and Chicken Fried Steak. All were fresh and flavorful. The onion rings were outstanding. Would definitely return the next time in Abeline.

They certainly cover every basic food you could possibly want; burgers, steaks, salads, Mexican. I had the Kansas strip steak which was very good and an excellent value. My wife had Fajita's that were salty and swimming in oil. Big crowd of families and bikers when we went for dinner.

Average cleanliness with decent service. Average food in an average building in an average town. The chicken fried steak is average in taste but not size. They have small and regular. It should be regular and large. The "regular" is huge but it needs work to be as good as it is big.

Was in town a couple weeks ago with friends and stopped here for lunch. Was amazed at all the menu choices. One of us had a philly sandwich, one a burger with hot stuff on it and I had the chicken salad salad. Everyone really enjoyed what they ordered and I can't wait to go back and try some more... More

Our bus tour group stopped here for lunch and were seated in our own room. The service started out a little slow, but the manager took steps to speed things up. We made a variety of choices. One person after another raved about the meals. There were many, ".... best I ever had." Sure wish this great place was in... More

I have been here many times and USUALLY the food is excellent. They have the best Hawaiian burgers. However, don't order fish! We went during lent on a Friday and I ordered a shrimp sandwich and it was cold! Another problem is sometimes it takes a while for your food to be ready. However, 95% of the food here is... More

We had a very pleasant lunch here. The menu is diner food with some upscale items. The decor was cute sports bar and very clean. The waitress was great. My husband had the chicken fried steak and I had the coconut fried shrimp. Both were very good.

We stayed in Abilene one night to visit the Eisenhauer presidential library and went to this restaurant as a tip from hotel staff. We ordered the surf and turf (surf was shrimp). Food was excellent. Best steak that we have had in years. Shrimp was great too as it was lightly breaded. Wine selection was apothetic and was very good.... More
