Gilley's Texas Cafe
Ten years ago, country crooner, Mickey Gilley brought a little bit of the Lone Star to Branson. Now, he serves it up in ladles overflowing with spicy chili, along with barbeque, burgers and Tex-Mex grub. At this Texas-sized restaurant, a colorful mural depicting a Southwest desert scene wraps around the walls. But you will not spend much time admiring the artwork. From the minute you are seated, you will be preoccupied with eating some of the finest chow in town. The popular Wild Bull Chili is a local favorite. If you are after something a little heartier, try the Heart of Texas Rib Eye.
This was our first trip to Branson. We decided to eat lunch at this restaurant. Needless to say, we won't go back and will NOT recommend it. The ribs were ok, but the mixed vegetables were something you buy and cook from the grocery store....peas, corn, lima beans, and green beans. My husband had the chicken fried steak, which had to come from Wal Mart. His roll was something you could get from a cafeteria. The fries were the only decent food we got. If you're going to eat here, go at lunch, since the prices on the dinner menu are kind of expensive.
arrived @6:40 by 7:35 we still hadn t been seated. we had ticket to the show so we left, the place was only 1/2 full, a lot of empty tables. People who were seated before we came in still didn t have their food when we left. Don t know if food is good or not.
For something my family and I had to pay $50 for it wasn't all that great. Our waiter never returned after bringing only half of the orders. We only managed to get the other part by flagging down someone else.
Also, the ticket did not arrive. I had to go up and actually ask for it. The managers were no help as well.
The food wasn't that great, too. It was very tasteless and my rice was over-cooked. I have no plans of ever visiting that place again. I do plan on telling others to avoid the restaurant, though.
So, don't ever go there.
My wife and I have been there twice. We like the place. Both times we were there was in early afternoon. We thought the food was very good. Last time there I ordered a Texas Sampler plate which was very good but only complaint was portions were a little on the small side but ok and I don't need to eat that much anyway. Wife had Texas Natchos and said it was very good but more than she could eat. (I sampled it and it WAS good)
The service was aweful. The server took 20 minutes to get to our table. I ordered the bowl of chili and it was a bowl of mush swimming in grease. Son had chicken fried steak and it was as dry as sand. Will never eat there again.
4 people got 4 seperate meals. No one was satisfied with the food. Everything was bland/had no taste at all. The taco salad made one member of our party sick to the point of not being able to leave the hotel for the rest of the day.
