We had eaten here once--3+ years ago--and it was a disgusting experience, which we did not hesitate to review harshly. The stellar reviews we saw were definitely deliberately misleading, because the grimy tables, grease-spotted waitress, the overcooked food and high prices were plain for anyone...More

We arrived to town late on a Sunday evening, so we did not have many options - but we were glad we stopped here. Delicious meal for a great value! Seemed to be a popular place to eat, it was still relatively full at 8:30/9pm.

We stayed over in Shamrock on our way to New Mexico. As is most towns on Rte 66 it falls asleep on a Sunday night leaving us hungry. Mitchell's was darn near the only place open. The place is a threadbare in spots and could...More

We grew up in very small towns and when we travel we seek out locally owned non-franchise restaurants. The food and service at Mitchell's was excellent. The prices were very reasonable. We would definitely dine at Mitchell's anytime we were in Shamrock.

Not fancy, just good cooking. We enjoyed our meal and the waitress was very attentive. Lots of local here so you know it's good and not overpriced.

We had the cheese enchilada dinner and felt that it was excellent. The chips ordered had an odd flavor but as soon as we mentioned it to the waitress, she apologized and quickly brought new chips that tasted very good. Overall experience was very good.

We went for Sunday evening dinner. Nice casual place, that's just down the two way i-40 west exit ramp. There's a closed gas station at the corner of the ramp and Hwy 83 , so north side of I-40. Very good service. I had the...More
