This is place for rough and tough ready to rumble dudes, at least it used to be, and the reputation sort of stuck around even though it’s just a really cool tourist attraction here. Back in the day (not sure when) Friedrich started the tradition of swapping animal heads or horns from hunters in exchange for a drink. As this collection grew, a collection of firearms was also added.
Also added was the Texas Ranger Museum featuring a lot the Division’s artefacts including handguns, shotguns, badges, and photographs. And there’s Native American art. And cowboy culture exhibits. And it used to be frequented by Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders – some even claim he recruited them here. Yeah, the place is the epitome of dude cool. Great food, great conversation and a really great atmosphere, do not miss a chance to dine here.

So neat. They have gotten so they charge for everything. Thought we were going to be charged for the air. Loved it. Did not go to the museum upstairs but enjoyed eating in the Saloon. I may be a little hard on them because I lived down there in the early 1950's and it was a simpler time. I know they would not be there now without money to pay for the upkeep. Please go for yourself and for your children and grandchildren.
Super cool place. Had an arcade and fun house mirrors which where a favorite for my kid siblings. Really good food but super pricey. Not a good place to take a big group unless you're ready to put down $100 for food and drinks.
It's a restaurant slash museum, little bit on the pricey side but, hey it's in the downtown. Nice fried mushrooms, handmade burgers and brewed iced tea. Wait time is enough when the food you're getting is fresh. Bonus, they also have a bar, so while you wait you can refresh your thirst with a nice beer or mixed drink.
This is a unique experience near the Alamo. You can eat, buy a drink from the bar, and browse their museum of unique and odd displays. They give a descent senior citizens or military discount at the door so beware before buying discount tickets near the Alamo.
Pretty neat place to visit if you have an interest in the Texas Rangers history. The museum was quite interesting and lengthy, I was skeptical by looking at size of the building and then shelling out 20 bucks per ticket to see the museum but I have to say I was surprised and it was well worth it. I recommend if you are there in the summer to go during the lunch hour, it makes for a great place to cool off and is less crowded. It has an awesome bar setting if you are into having a beer or drink saloon style. The only reason for a four star is that the food was just OK, similar to "concession stand" style food.
