We have visited the new location in Mesquite twice since it opened January 2nd. This family owned eatery does a good job and serves really good country cooking. It is a little higher priced than competitors but worth it. Chicken fried chicken proved a good...More

Had varied choices of meals with selection of vegetables. Generous portions of food at moderate prices. Very good chicken fried steak and fried chicken steak. Burgers are a meal. Lots of room and easy to get to off the Highway.

Went for lunch ordered Cowboy Quesadillas, Texas Queso, and Salmon Fillet. Should have known better than ordering fish in a steak house. The Queso was good, the rest not so good. Will find somewhere else if there again.

Enough of the leftovers.......who wants a steak? 3 chicken fried steaks and 1 rib-eye were eaten and no one complained at all. The steak soup was very tasty also.
