We both had the country fried steak which was way too much after an excellent salad and sunflower seed bread. The food was hot and the gravy over the steak was excellent a good place to eat if you are really really hungry.

This used to be my favorite restaurant in Alamosa but this place has gone down hill. You do get a good value for your money for the quatity of food you get. Steaks are decent. Good bar.

Have eaten steaks across this country and True Grit has the best steaks I have ever eaten any where. I have eaten here several times and will make a point to dine here every time I am in Alamosa.
