We stopped here for a quick lunch and were so pleasantly surprised! We both had chicken fried steak and my husband said probably close to the best he’s ever had! Right off the interstate and easy to find! Servers were very pleasant and friendly also!

The menu was varied and reasonably priced. The service was excellent. The food was tasty. Most of the local patrons knew each other and visited. $10 will get you a fine meal. Really worth a stop.

We had food to go from Skeets in Merkel, Texas. The food was wonderful! It always is every time we go to eat there. I would recommend this place to anyone living a good homemade meal.

I had a steak. Although not the best, it was pretty good. The girls in there were very nice. Salads are not worth the effort and veggies are portioned controlled in little cups. Very small portions, but good

All food is good but I will either get the chicken fry with onion rings, or a burger and rings. Rustic setting, great food.

Both of our entrees were cool in temperature, perhaps because wait staff let them in kitchen while they conversed at front desk. However food would have been pretty bad warm. Took forever to get check. Was cheap though if that is main goal in restaurant.
