We just left because of the rat problem. We were eating & seen them running around the area we were in. I will NEVER go there again, just nasty !!

Went there for quick lunch, but instead it turned into a 2 hour ordeal. The employees did not care at all, I should have felt the same about leaving them a tip. (but I didn't)

Cody's was a recommendation from some friends for a Wednesday night. The specials were 2 for 1 fajitas. Also 2 for 1 margaritas. The place was super busy at 5 pm. Most of the folks were on the "senior" age group. I have learned that if the seniors frequent a place the food must be decent and the value great.... More

We were a party of 6 and it took about 2 hours from the time we sat down to the time we left. Our server was slow and our food came out cold. Food was decent nothing special, especially not worth that long wait! Do not recommend!

Waited at the bar what felt like ten minutes, finally left. Bartender sarcastically said, sorry sir, were busy. Walked in the restaurant, told the manager what happened, he sat me at a table, same thing, finally walked out. I have been to Cody's in the past, food is usually good, same with service. Would not go back. Went to Longhorn... More

The service is very good. The steaks are delicious. There are peanuts all over the floors. They have a special tasting butter with cinnamon.

Just had some of the worst service ever. Waitress (Maria) never refilled soda or came back to check on my meal. She only stopped to take my order and bring some average food. Baked potato was over done and tough an dry. Sirloin steak was a ball of meat, not a steak. Rolls were over baked and flat. Very disappointing... More

First off find and sit where Vicky is your server. Then order the massive full order of onion rings. Good place decent food . Good time for the family. And the bonus is you get to throw the peanut shells on the floor lol.
