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

This is kind of late to post but I was thinking about Del Rio as I used to frequent this area for business and pleasure (fond memories of catching lot's of big bass at Amistad). Whenever in town I would always have dinner at Cripple Creek. The first time there I ordered the prime rib.... and it was the only... More

Spending the night in del Rio. Checked TripAdvisor for local restaurants. We moved to South Texas two years ago and are still looking for great steaks. The reviews sounded good so we gave this place a try. Still looking! Ribeye had good flavor but still not Kansas City type steaks. Prime rib so so.

Had been climbing all day and decided we wanted a good steak for dinner. Was a Saturday night, so had to wait about 45 min for food, steaks were cooked as ordered. Wish they had more side choices like a vegi.

My chopped sirloin looked great when it came out. Perfectly done on the outside with lots of grilled onions and mushroom gravy then I cut into it. Raw and cold inside. It was obviously frozen when it was put on the pit. My wife enjoyed her fried frog legs so that is the reason it gets 3 stars. Service was... More

Drove 20 miles from Comstock on the recommendation of a local. Dinner did not disappoint. My partner and I shared a filet Mignon, baked potato with all the trimmings and side of green beans. The steak was very well seasoned and cooked perfectly. Once I tasted it, I was sorry we were splitting it! Everything else was delicious as well.... More

Stopped with a couple of co-workers last night for yet another great meal from Cripple Creek. The Rib-Eye that I ordered was very good as well as the service. Great restaurant, just outside of town. A must stop if you are in the area.
