Cowgirl opened its doors in February of 1989. The restaurant was conceived and founded by Sherry Delamarter after a visit to the Cowgirl Hall of Fame Museum in Hereford, Texas. Sherry brought the images, soul, and cooking of the Western cowgirl to New York City and created a warm, Texas-friendly atmosphere, one of the first true Country Western locations in NYC. We were also the first to offer a warm welcome to buckaroos with a kids menu and trick-roping demonstrations on Hudson Street's now-bygone parking meters.

Over the years, the Cowgirl has hosted many famous CW recording artists including Dolly Parton, Reba MacIntire, Bonnie Rait, Roseanne Cash, Billy Ray and Miley Cyrus, Roger McGuinn and many others. We are proud to be a part of uniting true wild-west spirit with the independent, creative energy of NYC.

Great happy hour, excellent Tex mex fare in beautiful Greenwich Village. Very popular place especially on weekends, def not for the claustrophobic lol! Great old school location & staff. A favorite.

It is super hard to leave any other review besides amazing for CG, but this time was different. It was a really poor experience do to our server. As always the food, the friendship and the environment is perfect. I have been a fan and long time client for over 10 years now. I rarely use a reservation, but had to because time restraints. My best friend was in town and I had to finally get him to the CG. Our waitress never came back to check on the order, refills or anything. THANK GOD FOR buser's and the host. Any who - I will always come back and you always have a fan. But in a nut shell the waitress sucked. sorry to say!

Food quality was good, the value was alright, and the ambiance was nice and Western. Could have been more themed with western styled music (some country, country-rock, bluegrass, etc...)

We greatly appreciate Cowgirl's vegetarian options. It's not the best Tex-Mex restaurant but the food is good and the prices are very reasonable for the West Village.

I have to say I was somewhat disappointed with Cowgirl. I was looking forward to this place after a native Texan recommended it to me. The ambiance was nice and the waitress came quickly to take our order. I ordered the chicken mole special, which may have been my mistake, as it did not live up to standards. My girlfriend's chicken fajitas were a bit better. The frozen margaritas that we had were nothing special. The table where they seated us, which initially appeared nice and secluded, ended up being next to a staff storage room. Every time someone went by I had to move my seat, because there was not enough room between the chair and the entrance to the door.

All of the hostesses for Sunday brunch were horrible. Bad attitude and very rude. I made reservations and they sat us later while there were 4 open tables! Out of spite cause I asked if we could be seated on time. The tall blonde hair dude needs to not be in customer service!

Such a cute place. Very kid friendly although it wasn’t swarmed with kids. Had plenty of kids choices and lots to keep my 5 year old occupied and good food to keep me & my husband happy too. Casual and great for a Sunday brunch. A LITTLE pricy for breakfast but what isn’t is NY. Would go back every time I was in the city if I could.

We arrived 15 minutes early for our reservation and were seated immediately. Service was friendly and fast.
It was a fun spot for dinner and drinks. We had a tasty pulled pork quesadilla as an appetizer. For entrees my fiancé had chicken fried steak which he said was ok but would have been better if it was crispier, I had a bbq brisket sandwich which was really good as were the homemade fries and the collard greens we ordered as a side were perfect.
