I wasn't sure if we would like it BUT IT is one of the best shows we had seen in the 12 years coming here. The food was very good and the show was awsome. Great place for young and old alike. We will plan to go back on our next visit.

This is our second time visiting. The show was great, they have added animated backgrounds they were nice. The food was not very good, corn was like mush, the tea was instant and tasted awful, soup was not appetizing, other than that it was great!!!

We really enjoyed the whole experience. The show in the saloon was excellent as was the young lady that took our order. Once inside the show the staff was very helpful in directing you to your seat. Josh waited on us and was outstanding. He not only delivered your food (which was excellent) but, he interacted with us also. The person at the ticket window was on top of her game and handled our order very quickly. This is a must attend event.

Fun for all ages. Fantastic meal consisting of a whole chicken, a bowl of soup, bread, vegetables, and desert. Iced tea and coffee. Everything is eaten by hand - no utensils at all. The show was non-stop and very entertaining. Very friendly staff and courteous waiters.
