    Omg...this place is a awesome little dive with amazing food. Chicken fried chicken smothered in queso and 3lb cinnamon rolls are a must. The place is packed so expect a wait....but so worth it.

    The police chief special and the 3lb cinnamon roll. Delicious! We opted for the queso and the gravy to be on the side for the chicken fried steak. Gravy was way better. Fed us for at least 3 meals!

    Home of the three pound cinnamon roll and has really good chicken fried steaks and it's prices don't break the budget. A must if you go to San Antonio. Service is great also.

    The 3 lbs cinnamon roll is what I came for which came out in a shocking 10 minutes, so that was great. My only complaint is that the restaurant is completely and got cold coffee.

    The 3 lb. cinnamon roll is no joke. Our table of 8 people took it down... Barely. Also, very good chicken fried steak.

    The Sheriff's Special (chicken fried steak) covers the entire plate and with the double portion sides it comes with is big enough for 2 people. Delicious!!

    This place has been my favorite place in town for years. They're famous for their chicken fried steak, but if you ask me, it's ALL about the chicken fried chicken.

    I came for the deserts. I was disappointed to find they only had a couple pieces of carrot cake left and The cinnamon bun only came in the 3lb size. The service was very good.

    Long wait to be seated, long wait to be waited on, moderate wait for food. But the cinnamon roll was superb. We forgot to take a picture before digging in.

    I do not reccomend this place to anyone!! Save your time and money. This place is dirty and the staff is really rude! Do not let this place ruin your time in such a beautiful city.
