Kids' chicken nuggets were good. Salad bar was a good value. Food was good overall. I would come here for the atmosphere and environment with the expectation of good food. Service was very good.

Average breakfast, we must have missed something. We waited a bit before we received an opportunity to order, waited longer to get our meals. My hopes were high but not my expectations and yet I still couldn't deny this luke warm (literally) breakfast. Really liked the decor though.

Great hamburgers, mexican food, steaks and daily buffet old time charm quite get away. Good value for the food prices.

My wife and I ate there for a late lunch after watching the Cowboy Shootout show down the street. Service was excellent and food was good. I had the chicken tenders and my wife had the Ranch Chicken, both tasty. The salad bar was fresh and worthwhile. For dessert we split blackberry cobbler with ice cream, not to be missed!... More

My husband and I ate there for breakfast and dinner and the food was great large portions I took mine home. My Husband had the shrimp and he said it was about the best he has ever had. I loved the saddles for the front sitting area.

I grew up here and still have family here so I have to make a trip to the OST when I come visit. The food over the years is consistently good, cheap, and mainly just consistent! They don't change up the recipes or try to be something they are not. This place has been here for at least 40+ years... More

We ate there on the 4th of July. I had read a mention of the place in a past Southern Living magazine and thought it would be worth a try. Plus, it was the only place we could find open on the holiday. We almost couldn't find it because the big sign says OST and we were looking for Old... More

We ate here for brunch on Memorial Day, immediately after the parade, so obviously the place was very busy. Despite this, the service was good and we didn't have to wait too long. The staff were busy but remained polite and professional. The food was awesome - my pancakes were delicious and my friends enjoyed their steaks/eggs/etc. Would definitely return... More

Enjoy the run to Bandera so in all if your not in a hurry to eat the food is worth the wait. The place is for sure family oriented. People that have small children should be ask to leave if they can't keep them under control. We sat by the bathrooms and the children at the table in front of... More

We were referred to OST by a local patron while filling up with gas, she was absolutely correct. Juicy, Grade A patty and onion rings. Very nostalgic western venue with plenty of pics.
