The burgers, fries, and onion rings were very good. Migas were okay, portion is huge. The chocolate meringue pie is excellent. Our waitress was sweet and attentive!

Locals and visitors fill this place for good food at a reasonable price. The menu has variety and a lunch time buffet. Small town cooking at its best. I like to eat in the John Wayne room. My favorite meal is breakfast at the OST...More

If you want to eat gourmet, healthy food, go elsewhere. If you want to eat at a restaurant that's been around since 1921, has friendly waitresses, cool "stuff" to look at and rib-sticking food....this is the place. Was the CFS (chicken fried steak) one of...More

Disappointing, for sure. Hamburger was dry but onion rings good. Hubby's Mexican plate was ok but tortillas were gummy and taco shell mushy. Staff was nice. Men's restroom - in hubby's words - toilet covered in s__t. 😁💩

It's pretty hard to screw up breakfast. My eggs came as ordered and oatmeal was good. My husband enjoyed his omelet. We have eaten there at lunch and only mediocre. Seemed like Sysco products.

We went here on a Saturday night with the extended family. The salad bar was good and the menu extensive. Some options for the kids too.

Kids' chicken nuggets were good. Salad bar was a good value. Food was good overall. I would come here for the atmosphere and environment with the expectation of good food. Service was very good.

Average breakfast, we must have missed something. We waited a bit before we received an opportunity to order, waited longer to get our meals. My hopes were high but not my expectations and yet I still couldn't deny this luke warm (literally) breakfast. Really liked...More

Great hamburgers, mexican food, steaks and daily buffet old time charm quite get away. Good value for the food prices.

I read somewhere that they are open 6 am to 9 pm which makes sense as they do serve breakfast and we have been in there at night around 7 and they were still hopping. They get pretty busy though so plan ahead! Not sure if... More
