Diner Reviews
  • "Food was outstanding - different & delicious! Ordered melon & crab salad. It's a watermelon gelatin. Surprisingly delicious! Have you ever had a waiter who did not smile the entire meal? Me neither, until we dined here. Maybe it was a bad day for her but made us very uncomfortable."

  • "Service here is TOP NOTCH! From the bartenders to the wait staff...very impressive! We started at the bar with some cocktails. I am definitely coming back because they were delicious! Also, the bar was nicely set up and comfortable, bartenders were friendly and great at recommending drinks. Menu was diverse: everything from small plates to LARGE plates. We started out with the Hell's Eggs...Deviled with a kick. We also had the fried chicken and meatloaf. Comfort food for sure but not greasy and amazing flavors. Can't wait to come back to try more."

  • "This was our party's 1st. Ambience and service was very good. However some of the food was average at best. The only thing at the table that was above average was the hangar steak. Much of the food was very salty. The mashed potatoes were not warm. They were replaced with hot when we asked. Finally, there was not a single vegetable dish available nor a typical house salad. Too many other choices for a return trip."

  • "Great food! Lovely spot! Our waiter Danny was great! The noise level is a bit much - the music is too loud. Which is too bad because it is a beautiful space and it is set up so the tables are very private. Really a good experience though!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The menu is not very descriptive, be sure and ask your waiter what comes with everything. We thought that the food was unremarkable, nothing we couldn't make at home or find eslewhere. The pimento cheese popover was overcooked and unappetizing in presentation. I ordered the fried chicken (based on the waiter's request), but found that injected honey over-powered the other flavors so that was pretty much all you tasted. The biscuits looked good but were dry (and came without butter). The chicken also came with two fried tots of mashed potatoes and a jar of pickles which were also unremarkable. Had the German chocolate cake for desert. Cake itself was dry and heavy. Icing was good, but the ice cream was gritty and detracted from the dish."

  • "We enjoyed our dinner - first time diners. We celebrated my husband's birthday. We were seated in the back room, which turned out to be very nice as it was quieter than the main room. We will definitely return for another delicious meal!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "I like this restaurant. I like to come here for lunch, specifically business lunches with clients or colleagues. They have great tasting food, which I would describe as country with an upscale twist. They also have a little bit of everything so there is sure to be something on the menu to suit your pallet."

  • "YOU HAVE THE WRONG EMAIL ADDRESS - PLEASE STOP SENDING TO THIS ADDRESS"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Food was awesome! The only improvement would be to tun down the music in the dining area. Waiters had to raise their voice to be understood and move from person to person for each order."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Very disappointing for a Stephen Pyles restaurant. We went there on my wife's birthday and when I had made the reservation on OpenTable, I had so noted. No one even acknowledged that it was her birthday. The quality of the food was not at all what we expected. My wife ordered chicken & dumplings but did not like the taste of it all. I had the meatloaf and it was very dry. Some of it may have been that we were expecting the food to be true to its Texas roots with some minor treatments but this was too far afield for our tastes."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Lots of fun concepts on the menu, but not all of them well executed. Service was mediocre and a little awkward. Just wasn't what I was expecting based upon my love for Stephen Pyles other concepts."

  • "I think that Stampede keeps getting better and better. Simple, great food."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Excellent food, service and ambience! Couldn't have asked for anything more other than Stephan Pyles himself being there, but it was a Wednesday night, and the server thought he was out of town."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "This is clearly a place for tourists. The decor is overly schticky and the food tries to be upscale and special but it just is not. The fried chicken was ordinary, the chicken and dumplings were a stretch and the shiner bock bread was a dense disappointment."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "I like to take out of town clients here to get the "Texas" experience. Good environment. Food could be better."

  • "Had dinner for 2 on a quiet Tuesday weeknight at Stampede 66. Overall, it was just OK, but not up to the level we expected from a Pyles restaurant. Atmosphere was fun. Waiter was pleasant but service was weak. Food was good, not great, prices / values varied widely. We ordered a pimento cheese popover to start and a glass of wine. Wine didn't come for about 15 minutes, just before entrees came. We hadn't received the appetizer and asked - waiter didn't know what happened, but brought it when we were about halfway through our entrees. It was way overpriced at $10. Street tacos were very good and a bargain at $4 each. Meatloaf was bland. Ordered a $10 wine, charged for a $13 wine - not sure what I received. Probably wouldn't return."

  • "Give this place a shot, you won't regret it. these guys take classic texas and tex/mex dishes and prepare them in new and exciting ways. I was really impressed."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Quality of the food was very good, our party of 4 had plenty of food in the family style meal. Service was friendly and energetic. Very interesting menu of food and drink. We will go back."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Where to start? The service was poor, inattentive, and slow - had to ask for butter and salt, the table to be cleared, and the check. The food was okay to not okay. A ribeye steak, cooked medium rare, was full of gristle and very chewy. The catfish had come from a lake that had turned over and tasted muddy - could not eat any of it. The meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and green beans were pedestrian. The honey fried chicken was good, but needed a sauce. The biscuits were good, but dense. The peach cobbler and german choc cake were awful. BEST ITEMS - The deviled eggs were good and the tomato salad was terrific because the tomatoes were insanely delicious - I don't believe I have ever had better tomatoes in my entire life, seriously."

  • "We chose to celebrate an anniversary at Stampede. We expected fun and good food, and we were not disappointed. Stampede is much different from SP's other restaurants, and it's hard to select a favorite among them. They are each foodie pleasers."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Loved the food, drinks, and fantastic decor. Every detail was considered. The drink with grilled peaches was a great, refreshing summer treat, and the skillet brownie with Snickers shake was fun and super yummy!"
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Great food; service and ambience! Had the fried chicken and butterscotch pudding...both were excellent. Tasted the buffalo fried steak; excellent! Also shrimp and grits was great as well! Overall it was a great dining experience and I would definitely go back again!"
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "I have never felt more rushed in my life! This was a Tuesday evening and while the restaurant was crowded, there was no one waiting on a table. After paying for drinks at the bar, we were seated at our reservation time and after ordering appetizers, within 5 minutes they were on the table! Our entire meal, beginning to end was over in under an hour! The waiter was EXTREMELY PUSHY and after being told once that we didnt want the bread that he recommended, he asked again 5 minutes later! His "rush/rush", "get em in, get em out" attitude was not appealing and turned all of us off. Food was good but when you inhale your food...how good could it really be? A big dissapointment and a case of where the service killed this meal."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "My husband wanted to check this out for Father's Day. It was loud, the food was good, but they were slow serving. We arrived at 7:45 for an 8pm reservation and didn't get out until 10pm."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Sometimes food is taken to a new level and sometimes food is just overdone. Fantastic food includes the deviled eggs, mac and cheese, tamales, biscuits, fried chicken, frito chili pie. Over done food would be the mash potato bites, potato salad and brisket. Signature Margaritas are an interesting show, but at $18 / drink, one would not expect short pours on the alcohol. There was an amazing manager that evening that listened to our comments with care and won over the evening. Service was wonderful. We would return."

  • "Great food, service, ambiance! Super special nitrogen infused margarita! Everything we ordered was delicious! Will definitely be back...maybe try Sun brunch sometime!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "This was my first time at Stampede 66. The atmosphere was great, however the food was terrible. I ordered their chicken fried steak and the meat was so hard that it was almost uneatable (I left 3/4 of it on my plate). Additionally, before going to the restaurant I checked out their menu online. It showed a delicious sounding pot roast, which is what I was going to order. However the restaurant menu no longer had this item, with the waiter informing me that it was discontinued many months ago. Dallas has too many good restaurants, thus I will pass upon this one in the future."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "A bit garish. Menu eclectic, disorganized. Pricey for food good-very good but not outstanding, such as their chicken and dumplings, or chicken-fried buffalo steak, more flavorful elsewhere."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We chose Stampede 66 for our anniversary dinner. We had seen many good reviews and wanted to try something different. We were not disappointed. Service was excellent with just enough attention to feel important but not stifling. The menu had features of a tapas menu while offering more traditional offerings - an interesting mixture. The fired green tomatoes with smoked mozzarella was great. Both of our entrees were outstanding - honey fried chicken and chicken fried bison. The menu had so many interesting offerings that a return visit appears necessary :) The décor was very interesting - as native Texans we felt right at home. Actually, that is Stampede 66's strength - excellent gourmet quality food in a warm, comfortable setting."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "This as our 1st visit, family highly suggested Stampede 66 and we weren't disappointed. Our waiter wasn't as friendly as I expected, was thinking maybe he was just having an off night. Overall, the experience was incredible and look forward to coming back."

  • "Food was fare but not worth the rating the restaurant has been put on"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The food was very good with the portions not overwhelming. We left feeling full and satisfied. The experience of the cactus juice margarita creation was fun but I do prefer a regular margarita so for the price I would recommend you just watch someone else order it. It reminds me of a gelato consistency and is pretty sweet. We tried the taco appetizer, the tortilla soup, the fried chicken, the buffalo chicken fried steak and the lemon dessert. We can recommend all these dishes. The décor is quite enjoyable so be sure to look around."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The food was great, but the service was slow. It took 30 minutes for us to get our drinks, and they forgot two of them, so it took an additional 10 minutes for those. I made a reservation in advance and specifically asked for them to do something special for my mom's birthday, even if I needed to pay extra for a dessert. Her birthday was never even mentioned and they did not do anything. Finally, the food is good, but very over priced for the portions. We had a table of seven, and each appetizer was only enough for four people at most. We had to order 3 appetizers so everyone could have something, making the bill add up very quickly. Overall, the experience was okay, but be prepared for a large bill and to be there for a while. "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "I ordered the tortilla soup and the portion is so not worth the price. And it bland. The same with the salads. Neither are worth the price. "

  • "I may not have cared for the frenetic atmosphere, but I was the minority in our group, and that's a matter of personal opinion, not objective merit. The other three people loved the atmosphere. Our opinion on the outstanding cuisine was unanimous. Great food, great service. For this level of cuisine, I would even argue that the prices are far more reasonable than you would find in comparable restaurants. With six cocktails, two beers, shared appetizers, salads & tacos for the other three and an entree for me, and shared desserts, the total came to about $60/person before tip. For a relative feast, that's pretty darn good, and I'm guessing the booze was about 40% of the bill. "

  • "Went for our anniversary and we was pleasantly surprised. Food was very good, I am a vegetarian and had several options for dinner. Mushroom tamales were yummy. Portions are a bit small, but gave us room for the brownie dessert with Dr. Pepper float - was a great treat! Husband had pork belly special and he loved it. Would definitely go back and take friends and family. We sat in the wine room and it was cozy and not too loud."

  • "Simple food done REALLY well. Service was decent. Our server made two mistakes (one with a cocktail and one with an entree), but was friendly. We will definitely be back!"
