Good place to fill up on the standard burger, fajitas, fried fish etc. Nothing fancy but the food was good as well as the service. I had their homemade chili without beans. It was pretty good. A little too "tomato based" for my taste buds but lean and plenty of it. My girlfriend had fried catfish. Just typical "fried food".... More

Very friendly service, large portion of food, good taste, and great price. Husband had biscuits and sausage gravy ( $3.99) he could only eat half. I had breakfast taco (2 taco's) potatoes eggs cheese ( $3.99) I could only eat one and a half. They have a delicious green chili sauce. Great for breakfast.

Had a good home style breakfast & terrific lunch time hamburger while staying at the Smokey Bear Motel in the back. Went back for prime rib dinner but I really thing it was a well done flank steak .

This was my 4th time eating at Smokey Bear. The first few were not great, but this was terrible. it was the most horrible food I have ever eaten in my life. The bacon tasted terrible and had black material on it--obviously from a dirty grill. My omelette was awful! The meal grossed me out. Service was better than usual.... More

Just another example of a little country cafe serving up good, filing meals, with big portions and fair/good prices. Standard breakfasts, lunches, "specials" - lotsa fried items. Nice burgers, but their "specials" are better/less$$ than eat-at-home. As recent OK/Texas transplants, really been missing decent chicken-fried steak ... no more - this place has GREAT Chicken fried steak that rivals the... More

Quaint classic Mom and Pop restaurant. The southwestern chicken fried steak and the green chili stew were great. Excellent sides. Wonderful friendly service. Prices were great.

A very friendly mom and pop restaurant. We had homemade green chili stew and a burger. Nice portion size and reasonable priced. We passed up the homemade pies, but they looked delicious.

Very nice atmosphere with wall to wall Smokey Bear collectibles. Very good service and my husband enjoyed his biscuits and gravy, thick with sausage bits. My Pan San was ok. Eggs and bacon very well prepared, but the pancakes seemed like they were reheated on the grill and a little overdone on the bottom. Still, would consider it an option... More
