Our Family’s Country Cafe

Their address might be on Rainbow, but it’s not as simple as driving down that road to get there. Rainbow dead ends at Mountain’s Edge Parkway so you have to get on Buffalo and take a left on Cactus to get there. They’re located within the Mountain’s Edge community at the corner of Cactus and where Rainbow will eventually continue (right now it’s just a dirt road).

The restaurant is relatively small but the interior has a cozy, old-school country feel to it. Something along the lines of Cracker Barrel (for those familiar w/ that east coast restaurant chain), but on a much smaller scale. If the name of the place sounds familiar it’s because the owner used to own a place in north vegas with the same name. He sold it 2 years ago and opened this place earlier this year.

As for the food, I came here for lunch and had the country fried steak sandwich. It was a huge serving — lightly fried and crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. It was served on a toasted bun, smothered in gravy and topped with onions and lettuce. I haven’t had a country fried steak in years, but this was as good as any I remember. The fries it came with were big cuts, again perfectly fried making it crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Cost: $5.99 with tax

There was no wait staff, just the owner and his wife (I think) working the place. He stopped by a couple times to chat and check to see if I needed anything else. He seemed like a really nice guy. Hopefully they’ll get enough business from the surrounding neighborhood to stay in business a while.

Their prices are very reasonable. $6-8 for sandwiches, $8-12 for entrees. They’re open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
