This place looks like it would be right in the middle of cattle country... wait, it IS! It has a typical rustic look, with cattle brands burned into the walls and nostalgic wallpaper. The food was excellent and the staff (and other patrons) were very friendly. In fact, as we were leaving, the place had filled up, and the lady trying to ring everyone up was frantically trying to get everyone squared away. The phone was ringing, and a customer from one of the tables got up and answered it for her. He was obviously a local, because he told her who was holding on the phone, and she thanked him by his first name. The food was simple - no haute cuisine here! But, if you like steak and typical southern fare, this is THE place to go.
Favorite Dish: They cook a mean steak! Their chicken fried steak was wonderful, too, and more than I could put away at one sitting.

We were not at the cave in the summer, but on Saturdays from mid-June to mid-August a cowboy/western show is presented around 6:30 in a covered wagon dinner theater. Having not seen it, I don’t know if it is entertaining or not.
Dress Code: Casual everyday wear.

The Caverns are located about 15 minutes away from the town of Sonora, Texas. The easiest way to access the road to the caverns is by driving along I-10 and taking exit # 392. If coming form San Antonio, head West on I-10. However, if coming from El Paso, head East on I-10
Note: To visit the town of Sonora, Texas, get back on I-10 and take exit # 400. Thanks for pointing that Nat (b1bob).

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: This is another warm Texas cave. (see my San Antonio page’s “Off the Beaten Path” for another cave suggestion.) At 70 degrees you won’t need a jacket. Wear comfortable walking shoes with rubber soles.
