Place was clean, was seated promptly, Menu looked good, then all came crashing down. I had a side salad, very god cold and crisp. I ordered the Brisket Plate. It came and it was terribly dry, absolutely no smoked taste or BBQ taste to it at all. I asked for some BBQ sauce figured it couldn't hurt the brisket any, I was almost flabbergasted to have a very small metal thing of sauce brought to me. I mean all good BBQ houses have different BBQ sauces on the table . . . . .don't they? I ordered sides of a Baked Potato and the Cole Slaw. With out a doubt, these were the very best part of the meal. The Cole Slaw was about the very best I have tasted in a long, long time. The baked potato was also absolutely excellent. I had to ask for sour cream two times and then a third before it showed up. I was so annoyed about the brisket I spoke to the manager about it. I think the brisket cook ought to go back to automotive school!!!!! I won't be back for sure.

Braum's is perfect for a quick stop for groceries. They have meats and dairy products plus some veggies. They specialize in dairy with great eggs and milk. The ice cream is wonderful. The counter serves up burgers and all the fixings. Be sure to try the sundaes or milkshakes.

I'm not a big doughnut fan.. But next to crispy creme, these are seriously the best doughnuts* I've ever had! I would recommend going here.

Drive-through coffee shop in stand alone building in front of Walmart. I purchased a Soy Iced Vanilla Latte. Unlike Starbucks, it wasn't 90% sugar, 5% milk, 5% coffee. This latte had the perfect balance of bitter coffee, milk, and a touch of the sweet lingering vanilla. Very well done. We purchased a bag of coffee for a friend and he absolutely loved it. They also have great hours and pretty good whoopee pies (though they were quite small- perhaps this is local custom). Friendly staff. Overall awesome little local cafe.
TIP: If they're still doing it, you can present your receipt from the car wash next door and receive a discount off of your purchase.

Put this place on my list due to amount of excellent and very good reviews. Could have ordered lunch but opted for breakfast. Ordered over medium eggs with sausage, hash browns, biscuits and gravy. Everything was average at best, including the coffee. One egg was overcooked. Hash browns were skimpy in portion and dry. Was there for five minutes before anyone greeted me, and I was sitting at the counter! Overall visit was disappointing, but I'll give them one more try for lunch.

The Bistro is open for lunch with dinners to go and catering available. We have recently re-opened our fabulous patio for Spring! It boasts it's own outdoor kitchen and menu with porch swings, a putting green, live music, games for the kids! Look for Hole in the Wall Grill and Bier Garten
Stopped here for lunch last week. Had a salad of greens etc with two scoops of chicken salad, which was good but different. Still haven't figured out exactly how it was made.
Staff was friendly & food was served promptly. The store is lacking in product & looked a bit messy also the food in their cold cases looked a bit old & unattractive. A bit of organizing & cleaning up would make this Bistro fun to eat at.

I've never been disappointed in the quality of the food here. The shrimp scampi here is one of the best I've had. I've visited this restaurant for lunch/business meetings as well as for family dinners and have always come away very satisfied.

Cute place locally owned for lunch that is not what you get everywhere else. Our daughter was married in Mineral Wells last Saturday, June 18th, and I had planned to have a Bridal Luncheon at the rental house where we were staying. As Mother of the Bride, I had no time to do that the day before the wedding - silly me for thinking I could, so on that Friday at 9:30 a.m., I called the Black Horse Cafe to see if they could accommodate a party of 17 at 11:30. They were incredible! Quickly got the room they use as an office/party room ready for our guests, had the most amazing food, and the service was fantastic. We were so impressed and so grateful for their kindness. I'm still thinking about the delicious quiche I had and the chocolate layer cake. Too bad they don't have a location in Tennessee!
Great food and service. Very quaint little place. Local favorite for lunch. Got there around noon and the special was already sold out, must have been good.

Love the spicy chips they serve with the salsa. Food is always consistently good. Service, sometimes a bit slow. If you love Tex-Mex food, you'll enjoy El Paseo.

I thought that smoking indoors in bars had all but been banned in the US, BUT NOT WOODY'S! YUK! That said, the place is a one-of-a-kind gem. An old WWII quonset hut, with the spray foam insulation on the OUTSIDE. Only serves beer, burgers and chips. You can bring your own bottle in with you, and the only caveat is that you must buy the mixer from them. Not family friendly, but if you are adults only, you gotta stop.
