Though we've had burgers at other Braums, we've only had ice cream here.
The facility is clean and well maintained. Our server was friendly and accommodating.
Our sundaes were great, especially enjoyed the banana split (remember, it's important to eat plenty of fruit). Their ice cream is consistently creamy and flavorful.
The market area has a nice variety of items; great for snacks, if staying in a nearby hotel.
A great option for a bit of indulgence.

I love Hot Shots because it is where the local art students at SOSU display their artwork. So it is a great place to view artwork and have a nice cup of coffee. It is a nice comfortable setting with a nice selection of drinks.

Our motel recommended this restaurant and they were right! Delicious warm rolls to start, then an excellent salad with house dressing. The server was very helpful and friendly. One of us had the linguini tuttomare, full of seafood, shrimp, scallops, clams and mussels in a delicious sauce. One of us had chicken siciliano also in a delicious lemony sauce! We recommend this restaurant and will dine here again when in the area. Prices were very reasonable too!

No reservations for couple and 80 year old parents. Immediate seating at 11:45 am on a Thursday. Great service, large portions and fast time from kitchen to table. My wife is gluten free and accommodations were quickly explained and made.
Prices were very reasonable. We’ll be back.

Living in Texas most of my life, I have high expectations for Mexican food. This restaurant met those expectations. The place was off the beaten path, but well worth the gps guidance. The place is very small with a "meat market" sign out. I almost didn't stop but the reviews were very good so I gave it a try. I am glad I did. The white queso dip was very good. The chips & salsa also good. My entree was Beef Tacos Al Carbon and they were tasty. I would probably order the fajita meal next time but the beef was tender & tasty. If you like genuine Mexican food it is worth stopping.

After working in Dallas under the responsabilies as Chef, I finally got My Own Place Open "Ceviche" With a Unique Menu from the Gulf of Mexico we have many Dishes thathas been under the food critics and Loyal Customers. Try our Adobo Shrimp set on Crab and Spinach Enchiladas and Mango-Serrano Pico or Our Famous Bone in Pork Chop with a Pecan Port Reduction.
We had the Guacamole made at the table and it was good. I was debating to get the Green Chili Roasted Pork Tenderloin or the Pork in New Mexico Chile Salsa. Our waitress recommended the Green Chili Roasted Pork and it was very over cooked. Flavor was there, but very tough to chew as it was very overdone or was sitting under a warmer till someone bought it. Not sure. I was disappointed. Service was excellent, drinks were good. Next time we are in town to visit family I will try it again because most of the reviews are very good. This just may have been a bad night.

We had supper here while staying at the LaQuinta (about 500 feet from this restaurant). I wanted to splurge off of my diet while we were staying in Durant for a little mini-vacation by the Casino. So we went on Tuesday night when I could indulge in the all you can eat ribs and sides. It costs $16.99 but it was completely worth it and then some.
I wasn't sure what to expect since we have never eaten at this rib chain before. I was surprised by how good they were. They were meaty, tender, had a good smoke, and were very flavorful. The house BBQ sauce is excellent. The sweet and smoky beans were wonderful. I didn't have to track down the waitress for more ribs or sides - she came to the table to ask before I ever ran out of anything.
My wife ordered the loaded baked potato with chopped brisket and other fixings. It was the biggest potato either of us have ever seen. I know this was at least a 2 pound potato with a pound of fixings on it. She ate about a fourth of it and we took the rest of it with us which made 3 more meals.
We did have a problem with the first potato the brought. Half of it was completely uncooked and as hard as a rock. We told the waitress about it and she had another one out in just a couple of minutes. It has to be hard to cook a potato that is almost the size of a football. I don't fault a place for making a mistake. I just them on how they fix it and they took care of this instantly.

I had read some reviews that the food was good, but the service was slow. We did not find that to be true. The hostess took us right in & seated us in the back. Our waitress Jessica was right there asking for drink orders & made some recommendations. Drinks came & we ordered the crab cake appetizer. (there were 2). They were very good. We were having a tough time deciding which steak we would choose. She recommended sharing a steak & getting a few sides, which we did. We chose the 11oz filet which my husband didn't think was going to be enough, but with the asparagus, & the roasted mushrooms, which were very good, & 2 baskets of bread, we were stuffed. We had told her earlier we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. She brought desert menus & said desert was on the house because of our anniversary. Okay, so we ordered the banana foster cheesecake. Very good.
It felt like we were in a Ruth Chris steakhouse or 3 Forks. Prices are about the same. For us it was a special night without having to drive to Dallas or Ft Worth.

I enjoyed my burger and fries. I just got a basic cheeseburger. The burger was very good and you could see no pink which is how I like my burger. The fries were also really good and not too greasy. We received our order very fast. This is a good choice if you want to grab a quick bite before a concert.
