    Best brunch!

    My husband and I come to Cowgirl for brunch all the time and we have never had a bad experience. The Ranch Handler is the best and we can change it up to suit our tastes (I like scrambled, bacon, cheese grits and banana pancakes while he likes scrambled, sausage, breakfast potatoes and blueberry pancakes). I have also been there many times with my friends (usually a large number of us) and they love it too. We usually go for brunch but some friends have had lunch items such as the "All Chopped Up" salad and the catfish po' boy. The menu on this site needs to be updated as many of their great dishes are not on it. While we have had some less than attentive waitresses, we have never had a problem with the waiters and I think those waitresses no longer work there. Give it a try for brunch and see for yourself!

    Poor Service

    Stopped in for a quick bite. That quick bite took 2 hours. Apparently our order was never made because the register tape ran out in the kitchen. Our waitress kept walking past time and time again; never stopping to think why she hasn't brought us our food. Finally after almost an hour, we flagged her down and she told us what happened. We then had our food in ten minutes. The food was nothing great. We will never be back due to the poor service. No tip for her.

    Dont Be Fooled by the Bad Reviews!

    I am SHOCKED at the number of poor reviews on this place. My BF and I stumbled upon this great eatery one afternoon, and were INSTANTLY hooked in by their unique take on salsa and chips - its truley addicting! Lunch is great, dinner is great, and I can only imagine brunch follows suit. Also, as a side note, any Sex and the City Lovers reading this - it was used in the series in an episode.

    Fun To Try Once

    A friend and I made the journey to CowGirl after reading about the chili in a Fritos bag in TONY. It was definitely fun to order and fun to eat however my Fritos were soggy while his were crispy. We deduced that this must havemeant that one order was made far in advance of the other. It's too bad because the concept of the dish is great. And take a pass on the mac and cheese, it's very VERY dry. The ambiance of the restaurant reminded me of a chain restaurant. You have your Planet Hollywood, your RainForest Cafe, your Hard Rock... I guess this is the version of what a Cowboy/Dude Ranch restaurant would be. It's cute, but as a local New Yorker a one time trip "just to see" is plenty. I would go back just to sit at the bar during a happy hour. It looked fun and casual on the bar side. And if the complementary black eyed pea salsa is served there I would stay for HOURS! What's in there? Dill pickle juice? It's fabulous!

    Plenty of better choices than Cowgirl

    Another reviewer mentioned the restaurant "Blue Smoke" in their review of Cowgirl which is completely laughable since "Cowgirl" is not even in the same league as "Blue Smoke". Cowgirl has a very small peppering of good things on their menu, but most of them are overpriced. Their beef chili dinner with cornbread is the best item on the menu. Their collard greens are and blueberry cobbler also stand out as being above average. Cowgirl's biggest issues are poor atmosphere, poor service, bland and overpriced menu, and their wacky 10% delivery charge -- which no other restaurant in the Village has. With so many excellent new restaurants in the West Village, it will be interesting to see if Cowgirl is able to renew their lease.

    You people are nuts

    Everyone on this page that has complained is nuts. You either don't get out much or when you do you have some sort of distorted concept that you are the only table in the restaurant. I lived in Texas for 24 years and Cowgirl's BBQ is by no means haute cuisine (like I think Blue Smoke tries to be) but it's as good as any grillin I'v had in any restaurant or backyard in Texas. And as far as the criticism of the service... Want your own personal waiter? Try the Four Seasons! I've been to Cowgirl dozens of times in the 15 years I've lived in NYC and the waiter or waitress has never failed to make me laugh and in some way enjoy my experience. Sure, I may have had to wait for a check on occasion and one time my mashed potatoes were cold (certainly not the waiter's fault) but damn, I don't go to a place like "Cowgirl" and expect to walk away with a 5 star memory. But I've never failed to walk away with a smile on my face and plenty of good comfort food in my belly. And that smile on my face could have more to do with the bar than anything, but hey, if you can't walk away from a place like Cowgirl having had a good time... you're in trouble.

    Bad Cowgirl. Bad.

    Coming from the south, my mother and I cooked so many dishes on the Cowgirl menu and the plain truth is that their cooking is subpar. I kind of know the owner so I feel bad writing this but I’ve been sooooo hungry for some of that good ole southern comfort food and gone several times thinking I simply need to order something different than the last thing that wasn't good. Besides the Mac And Cheese (which was unnecessarily hyper greasy) and the chicken fried chicken everything I’ve had was sad slash bad. I ordered take out once and it was so inedible I threw away my order, went to the grocery store, came home and cooked the same dish myself - which was slamming. Honestly? They have such a great space, location and (somehow) following I just wish they would put a recipe suggestion box in so us real Southerners could give them pointers. Maybe then they could amp up their menu and make it the real west village gem they like to think they are. Sorry guys!
