Steak poor quality. There is nothing more I can say. Zero ambience. Inattentive wait staff. Dining room a little dingy.

I liked this place - casual atmosphere, great burgers and chicken fried steak - not to mention "Breakfast All Day". Right in the heart of Old Downtown Denton it is definitely worth a visit!

I have had breakfast, lunch, and dinner here. The ayce catfish on Th-F-Sat is excellent. The king, however, is their chicken fried steak. if you get the regular portion, it comes on it's own plate. Your sides are on another plate. And it's really good.

I'm sure that Cartwright's offers much more than breakfast but that's their claim to fame among our household. Lot's of choices served quick, hot and with a friendly local touch. Great location right on the Square in Denton. We'll be back as we're regulars.

This was very convenient to the Courthouse and a good place to discuss the events of the morning. The food was very good as well as the coffee. Many choices on the menu with something for everyone. I would definitely go again.

Hands down some of the best food I have ever eaten. EVERYTHING on the menu is awesome. Prices are very reasonable. Not expensive at all. Great family atmosphere. Located in the middle of downtown Denton.

Cartwright's Ranch House opened in 2011, but began as a dream many years ago. Located in Denton, TX they serve home-style foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All made from scratch. Famous for their chicken-fried AWESOMENESS!
