I'll preface this review that our visit was on Valentine's Day, which was extremely busy. But the service from our server was way below poor bordering on non-existent. It took forever for our table to get our food (almost an hour) without the server even visiting our table. After we received the food I asked for an extra napkin, as... More

I came to Del Rio, Texas, expecting a Texas style steak house. Cripple Creek is about on par with Applebee's or Bonanza. Maybe Del Rio can't support anything any better?

We were pleasantly surprised. Upon ordering our beer the waiter asked if we wanted a small, medium or large. We ordered a large. And boy, are they large!!! That was a very pleasant surprise. I ordered the grilled shrimp and my husband got the steak. We were both pleased with our meals. The wait staff was attentive even though there... More

This is a very homey, comfortable Texas beer joint. And if you're from Texas, you know that's a compliment! Great atmosphere, even better chicken fried steak, the true test of a great hometown experience! My best accolades!

I recently enjoyed dinner here with a colleague. We were greeted and seated immediately. Our waiter was very nice and knowledgeable of the menu and helped us with some recommendations. We started with some delicious fried mushrooms for an appetizer and enjoyed entrees of a filet and chopped steak. All our food had excellent taste and temperature. This establishment is... More

I am from Dallas and live in New Orleans, so I have been to my fair share of good restaurants. This place was recommended to me by a friend, Noe M. I never in a million years thought that a steak in Val Verde, County would have been this good. It was delicious. Absolutely delicious. The steaks are great and... More

Had a nice experience here for a business dinner. Steaks were wonderful if ordered medium rare. Those that ordered them medium thought they were a bit over cooked and began to lose taste. Nice atmosphere and good service. They need to address the general smell of the restroom area.

The Cripple Creek is a great place to let the carnivore loose. We started off with the house salad followed by the armadillo legs. For the main course we had a lobster tail, steak and shrimp and a shish kabob. The steak came out beautifully with a red warm center, the lobster was sweet and succulent and the side of... More
