Medicine Mound Depot Restaurant

We serve some of the best BBQ around and a whole list of southern favorites. We are in a historical setting. Our building was built in 1905 and was two train depots that were put together. Come on in and relax and let us take care of you.

Everyone is right --- it doesn't look like much, but the food is good. The chicken fried steak is indeed very good and worth the stop. I've had better mashed potatoes, but that didn't stop me from finishing them. Service was a little slow, but it's small town Texas and we were in no hurry and enjoyed a leisurely meal.

Cafe Blackbird

Reviewed By Milissa R - Fort Worth, Texas

Quanah, Texas, population about 3000, is not really the kind of place you'd think would offer wonderfully tasty and fresh food. But there is a new breeze blowing across the Texas Red River Valley and the epicenter of that breeze is Cafe Blackbird. Cafe Blackbird is very easy to find as it sits on Highway 287 - the main thoroughfare in Quanah. The restaurant is extremely inviting with an open kitchen, minimalist decor, and the friendliest of staff in that corner of the state.

The focus of the cafe is fresh salads, sandwiches, soup, and dessert. But before you start thinking this is just another small town sandwich shop listen to these options:
Spinach and Strawberry Salad featuring spinach, sprouts, red onion, fresh strawberries, feta cheese, sunflower kernels and a strawberry vinaigrette.
Chicken, Bacon, and Avocado Salad is a garden salad of fresh greens, tomato, bell pepper, cucumber, broccoli, onion, sprouts, aged cheddar, and egg served with chicken, bacon, and avocado on the side so you can fix to your liking.
Panini Grilled Sandwiches include:
Turkey Cranwich consisting of roasted Turkey, salad greens, sprouts, red onion, havarti, and cranberry chutney. Cafe Blackbird also features a Grownup Grilled Cheese with sharp cheddar, havarti, pear slices, green chili, crisp bacon, and sprouts.
Cold Sandwiches are represented by the vegetarian option the Green Thumb consisting of cucumber, avocado, spinach, sprouts, garlic & chive cream cheese on toasted whole grain bread. Or for those who want something simple, Cafe Blackbird offers a Simple Sandwich where the diner choses from a BLT, ham, or Turkey with lettuce, tomato, red onion, and cheese with mustard or mayo on plain white bread. Both the panini and cold sandwich comes with fresh fruit and chips. Gluten free or flat bread is available upon request.

Cafe Blackbird also offers combos such as any sandwich with a side garden salad OR cup of soup or any sandwich with a side salad AND a cup of soup.

But what you really want to stop for is dessert. We had 4 options: chocolate chess pie, buttermilk pie, funfetti cupcakes, and a most divine hummingbird cake.

While you might think Quanah is a bit out of the way, if you are traveling from DFW to Amarillo and beyond, you'll drive right past. It is definitely worth setting the trip back 30 min to enjoy the delectable food at Cafe Blackbird.

Stopped here for a bite to eat for lunch after the recommendation of Kylie at the Tumbleweed Special of the day was enchiladas, chips and salsa. These needed a little more spice however they were still good. Definitely great value for the price. Two enchiladas, beans, rice, chips and salsa. More than enough food!!!! Would definitely eat here again.

Stopped by on our way to deliver in California. Have eaten here quite a few times before and the food is always really good. I had the Chicken Fried Steak which they tenderize and bread themselves. It was really great although they did drown it with gravy which I scraped part of it off. My husband had the enchiladas and had no complaints. We were the only customers in there at 5:00 pm so I hope that is not an indication of how well they are doing. Would hate to see it closed down.

Airstreaming in Quanah, and the Mrs wanted pizza. Located in an old Pizza Hut or Pizza Inn building on Hwy 287 headed west out of town. Now family run, called for takeout. Got what we ordered plus a few extra ingredients.....crisp crust as ordered, tasty. Very friendly personnel, I will return if ever again in Quanah.

This is a locally owned and operated store that has the same quality of food and drink of any Sonic, but affords the travelers and local residents speedier service. I've not found a Sonic in any other location that is as quick serving as this one. The ownership is very particular about their service to patrons.

Frankly, I don't like Sonics. They do have a wide selection of sandwiches, and I like their fruit drinks.

This was our second visit to this Subway. The first time it was dirty. This time the server had a line of people waiting as she slowly made up her mind that she might serve us, finally put on her gloves, looked up to finally recognize us and announce that they were out of ham and Turkey. The lettuce on my chicken sandwich wasn't fresh. This is by far the worst Subway I've ever eaten at, and I won't be back.
