My wife and I had lunch with several other friends this past weekend and the food was really good but not great. The line to get in was really long. Service was great though. Worth checking out while in town.

It was 30-40 minute wait. 50 people in line. But they are a well oiled machine. We set at the counter and watched how the machine ran. One person did nothing but put pricing, tax, and totals on ALL the tickets. Another arranged the plates...More

If you like homestyle cooking - this is a good stop. The chicken-fried steak was tasty and a very nice salad is offered as one of the sides. Fried okra was very good. Then there was the pie!!! Mile-high meringue - lemon and chocolate pies...More

Boiled ribs, over cooked carrots, weird tasting spinach, average mashed potatoes, awful biscuits, and a so-so apple pie. No reason to go back. I have no idea why it is popular.

Food was ok at best. I know they were busy but it could have been better. Biscuits and toast both dry, scrambled eggs were greasy, bacon was like shoe leather.... Hopefully they were just having a bad day but my visit wasn't good.

Breakfast was delicious. Extremely large portions. The pies looked amazing - and so many varieties. They must be good because lots of people had pie after breakfast. Service was excellent and our waitress was friendly. Good local flavor!

I live here in town and have tried the BB a few times just to give it a chance to live up to the hype. The wait is often long, the waitresses too hurried to give great service, and the food is bland. I have...More

There are several parking spaces on the side street of Blue Bonnet's parking lot (that we're open at the time of our visit). we also had a 28 ft in-closed car hauler that we were pulling at time of our visit.

Did not see any gluten free options. Also, if you have a nut allergy- don’t eat pie. They cut pecan pie with the same utensils as chocolate, etc.
