Just happened upon Cowgirl looking for somewhere to brunch on Sunday. What a great breakfast menu! Huevos with a saucy chiplotle sauce, a knocked out eggs florentine with fresh spinach and poached eggs as delicate as I've ever seen (and they honored my request for hollandaise on the side). Tasted like "cowboy coffee," to me, too -- the kind where you throw the ground coffee right into the pot and let it stew. Strong enough for ten young bullriders! Loved it. And the decor, for this east coast-living Western-born girl, was a special treat. Hundreds of photos of, well what else? Cowgirls! We especially loved the old photos of cowgirls in pairs, looking like sweethearts. Made me re-think the whole concept ... A great place for friends to eat (with or without kids). Friendly, charming. Had no trouble with service at all. (Maybe they "heard" these earlier comments?) I have no complaint about the food or decor, but it's too funky to place at the top of the 10-point scale, if you know what I mean....

My first review was pretty good. Kids liked it and drinks were good, food & service OK. Second review, not good at all. We went at 6pm on a Friday, was not even close to being busy yet. 40 minutes to get my food. Waiter came and asked "Have you gotten your food yet?" "Yea, we have eaten our dinner and taken our dishes to the kitchen ourselves just like we do at home" Not impressed. I had to send my plate back as my chicken, green beans and tatter tots were cold. Waiter was indifferent. I want to like this place as my kids like it. But service has been bad both times. Until I see some reviews where service has improved, we are done with this place.

As someone who lived in TX bfore NYC, the family loved the decor. While we enjoying the very strong drinks, the food menu was good for kids. The wait staff is not the best so need to be aggressive. Definitely will go again.

I just LOVE Cowgirl Hall of Fame! Whether it's to show to folks visiting or to get together for brunch- this place is always a hit! The food is great & is meat & veggie eater friendly and the ambiance and staff make it unforgettable. In a world of chain restaurants and experiences this is a unique must!

I come from Ohio to visit my sister, and Cowgirl is always a stop for dinner. My favorite meal is made from the appetizer menu and includes the awesome sweet potato fries, cornmeal fried catfish fingers, and the cabeza de ajo. Mmmm....wish I was there now!

I loved this place. The food is amazing and the service was the best!! The 'poppers' were amazing and really spicy! The ribs were by far the best I've had. They also have a gift shop that had lollipops with crickets in them.. We just love this place.

The black eye pea salsa was to die for. We were there in Dec of 08 and are already planning our trip back in November 09 and will be sure to go back here and eat again while we are there.

i think what made the whole experience memorable is the incredibly insane server. You all know who he is! The crazy middle aged guy that runs around making funny noises, and sometime...just sometimes brings you something you just never asked for. The food is bomb! The catfish po-boy is the shiznit! And of course the frozen margaritas are excellent and I dont even like margaritas! Keep up the abnormally good work guys!

Last time I was here I swore our waiter was Ned Ryerson from Groundhog day (Bing, and everything). Most people that work here are middle-aged rock-a-billies who are half out fo thier mind. The food is always great though and the drinks are well priced. Besides being accosted by my waiter, i would go back anytime.
