This restaurant was recommended to us by Dziuk's Meat Market. The place is great. Simple but well prepared dishes. The place to go. Excellent value for money.

We ate here for dinner and we're basically ignored the whole time. We had to hunt down a waiter to take our food order, our drinks came with dinner not before and refills were scarce. The food was under cooked, sloppy and obviously thrown together out of frustration at having such a large order. There 10 of us so it... More

On our way to Del Rio from San Antonio we decided to stop here for dinner. Food was very good as well as the service.

This restaurant has been around for decades and seems to be a local favorite. We had heard a good review on them so stopped in for lunch while driving through the area. There is plenty of parking and a sign at entry showed to seat yourself. Then an employee acknowledged us and told us to seat ourselves as well. We... More

There are some good places in Castroville. This isn't one of them. Poor food and service. We had called ahead a week early for a large group traveling together. Not a buss. There was 1 waitstaff and it was a mess. The food was mostly left on the plates. Warmed up Sisco prepared and overpriced. No thanks.

We stopped in Sammy's since it looked like an interesting place to stop. It is definitely a throwback. Food was good.. And the mashed potatoes tasted homemade

We had take out so we could watch the game at our camp. Food was ready, cashier polite and helpful. We had 2 chicken fried steaks-bland, tough. Mashed potatoes fine. A large burger with jalapeños and a small burger were tasty. French fries limp--- important no salt/pepper or ketchup- be sure to ask for them. Chicken with bell pepper, onion... More

My family and I have come here since I was a child and it just keeps getting worse. It has been over a year since we last visited but friends wanted to meet there for breakfast. It was a terrible experience, awful service...waiting 20 minutes for coffee to be served then it was slopped on. The meal finally came after... More

This was my first time here but will not be my last. The hostess was very unfriendly, and the waitress wasn't much better but the food was great. All homemade taste.

Stopped with a co-worker for dinner tonight. Have been here a number of times in the past and have never been disappointed. Had the Chicken Fried Steak. Excellent dish. Dustin our server was very attentive and we had no issues. A must stop if you are in the area.

Thank Bruce G
