This is a hometown favorite for us. Old fashioned Texas breakfast. Yummy! There can be a wait, but the food is worth it.

This place was so good we went twice during our vacation. The portions are generous and the prices are great. Oh and the Sweet tea had just the right amount of sugar. On top of all that the staff was amazing the first day we were there we moved table in the middle so a friend could join us!

We went on a Friday morning so there was no wait to get in. This place is always packed on the weekends and now we know why. The food was really good and the prices were reasonable. I would go back but only if I don't have to wait long for a table. The service was quick and our waiter... More

The waiting staff are very attentive and friendly. The food is southern style country breakfast fare. Lots of gravy and biscuit combos with hash browns and eggs any way you want them, The coffee cups never get empty, but the lines form early, especially on the weekends. Good food for a good value.

This was, by far, the best breakfast I've had. Each one of us ordered something different and the food exceeded our expectations. There is a wait time for a reason - this is a fantastic place to eat!

Great Food and Service at the Old West Cafe. We went a few lunches in a row while doing business in Denton. The food is not that of a typical cafe; the foods thought out well and plating is perfect. Prices are decent; not too cheap but not too expensive. The only drawback is the atmosphere feels a little tight.... More

Been here and done this several times. Food is good but overcoming there parking lot can be a bit much. If you can get there other then the weekends then go for it.
