I’ve been to many Cattle Barons, and this one has had the best food and service! I had a ribeye steak with mashed potatoes and lemon grilled asparagus! Prices aren’t too bad either! Salad bar is a must! 😀

This restaurant has nice steaks, a really good salad bar/buffet with soup and the service and surroundings are good. We like to stop here on the way back from Cloudcroft, because it's peaceful and we can get a decent meal.

The salad bar is fresh with a good selection and the accompanying soups are delicious. We generally fill up on the soups and salad items. The entrees are ok but way overpriced.
