Dine in a barn. Hee Haw. Golden Corral elevated to edible. A standard, very ordinary salad and baked potato will arrive with a pretty good steak. The shrimp is lovely every other time.

This is my second time to eat here. They have really good chicken fried steak! It's hand battered and cooked to perfection ! The prices are so cheap her I don't now how they do it. The chicken fried steak comes with a side and a soup or salad for $13.

Passing through Abilene wanting a good and quiet place to have dinner. We were recommended The Beehive. Food was so-so, but the service was excellent.

Burgers were standard fare except the thickness excelled at about an inch and a half. You could tell the beef used was quality. Try it.

My husband and I went to have dinner recently before we move back home next month. I really expected more from this place after hearing good things. We had onion rings as an appetizer and they were probably the highlight of our dinner. My husband had chicken fried steak and he said it was okay that he's had better. We... More

My wife and I took our new pastor to the Beehive for lunch. We selected the Beehive because of the open and airy environment to sit and enjoy a great meal and good conversation. The wait staff was perfect...professional, friendly, and attentive. The lunch selections were disappointing. I ordered the chopped sirloin. It was overcooked and the meat was very... More

Service is always good and the food is excellent. A little pricey for lunch but worth it. Have not been in for dinner but have been told it is as good or better than lunch.

The staff is very friendly and take good care of their customers. Local owners mean no cookie cutter food items like the chains. Evenings and especially weekends book fast to I recommend reservations... More
