Great place for comfort food. Chicken fried chicken, chicken fried steak, catfish, incredible pancakes, and home-style breakfasts. My wife loves the salads here as well.

This place is right on the square and gives you a ton of food for a reasonable price. Everything was prepared perfectly. Aaron was our server and was extremely nice and helpful.

This place is just a GOOD country food place to eat. We’ve eaten here many times and it never disappoints us. Service is also always good. First time I’ve had the breakfast. Great pancakes, eggs, bacon and country potatoes. I say - 2 thumbs up

Cartwright's Ranch House opened in 2011, but began as a dream many years ago. Located in Denton, TX they serve home-style foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All made from scratch. Famous for their chicken-fried AWESOMENESS!
