Admittedly, I am more lenient on small or privately owned businesses as they rely on reviews such as these to exist. Cowgirls Cafe is no difference. I know there are several of them but they are quaint and have a familiar feel to them. You...More

If my husband were writing this review, he'd be giving it a 5, but maybe he over-hyped it for me. I was not as impressed. The service was a bit slow, but it was brunch on a Sunday, so I'll give them some leeway there....More

Just had a skillet and it was great. The burgers are off the chart. Nice and charbroiled. I was able to sneak a bit off my kids. I'll be back when I'm around the area. Nice job.

Had the lunch special of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and green beans. More food than I could eat. The special was a great value.

We wanted to try something for breakfast that was local and not a chain restaurant. So we found this place not to far from the hotel. The service was so slow and it wasn't even busy. We got our drinks and then our waitress wandered...More

Food is typical greasy spoon fare. Atmosphere is flashback 1974. I had breakfast served all day - waffle, 2 eggs, 2 bacon - but when I got it there were three eggs - bonus? Hubby had a turkey sandwich that was too dry, got a...More
