It's ok, however just down the street they have chicken fried steak for 5.99 and this restaurant is pricey, and I would like to see better prices and I would go back food is not bad .

My wife and I had a very basic eggs, toast, and bacon breakfast, and it was as good as any we've had anywhere in the world. Staff was great, especially the energetic girl with the blonde ponytail.

Great place to eat in Gardnerville. The atmosphere is great. I've had everything practically on the menu and it's all good. Tri-tip sandwich is my favorite!

Love the Cinnamon rolls, but everything I've tried is good. Burgers for lunch are very nice also. Must eat here if in Minden/Gardnerville.

We have visited the Cowboy Cafe on several occasions. The meals are ample and delicious. The staff is very accommodating and efficient. The ambience is that of the old west. This is a very good Cafe for both breakfast and lunch!

We tried Cowboys Café for the first time today while driving through Minden. We planned to stop for lunch but the breakfast menu looked so good that we all had a breakfast item for lunch. The portions were large and the food was delicious.
