When you drive up it looks neat and atmospheric. You walk in and it smells strange and looks very uninviting. The entry is a narrow, dark, carpeted room with old booths on each side. You are taken down a ramp into a smoke filled room...More

Not much to add. Great chicken fried steak. Came out fast and still steaming from the kitchen. I like that. Nice country drive. Worth the drive.

They have huge chicken fried steak which they are well known for. They have a bar and a night club next door which has karaoke. There prices are a little high.

The Chicken Fries Steak is what they are knownot for and it's enough for two people. You get plenty of food and it's delicious!

Not really. The only thing scary was the Halloween decorations outside the cafe. We had not been there in almost twenty years since we moved to far North Dallas. The atmosphere was rockin' country, the staff was attentive and the chicken fried steak was fantastic....More

Right out of Urban Cowboy, we NJ folks were out of our element, but food was good, and had a good time. We skipped the bar, as we had a drive back to Dallas, but local flavor and a cool place to eat. Maybe prices...More

Being new to the area, is the bar area a place where people in their 20's hang out or is this more of a family restaurant? Looking for places to get to know more people.

It's kind of mixed. Bar typically has younger people on week nights.

I do believe smoking is allowed in bar area but the air circulation system works great. Live music on weekends.
Do you have a dance floor? We really like John Slaughter and would come from out of town...but want to dance.

The "club" side has a dance floor. The restaurant part is separate. ENJOY!
