My wife and I stop here from time to time, mainly because it is close to home. On occasion, the service has been a little slow, but normally, we only go when we are not in a hurry.

We made the mistake of going in the other afternoon, a Wednesday, when we both happened to be home. We began this adventure with being sat at a gravy covered table. this went nicely with the lettuce stuck to the drinking glass. There was absolutely NO service. We started with an ap, the toothpicks. they arrived 30 minutes later, stone cold.

we waited another thirty minutes for the entrees. My wife s chopped beef was pretty good according to her, however, my three meet plate was pretty messed up. the brisket and turkey were very dry and hard. The waitress said it was because they sat in the window so long. Really? what the hell is the matter with you? the next problem was the fact that the chicken was missing from the plate all together. It arrived ten minutes later with the salads. yes, the dinner salads came after the meal had been on the table a while. The waitresses excuse. oops, thought I d brought those

At NO point did a manager walk through the dining area. No apologies, just excuses from the waitress. There are a lot of places to eat, choose another one.

would you trust them to cater anything more than a child s tea party?

After reading some of the reviews, you will notice that some of them are from the staff, and not real!

I have been out to the Prairie House many times. The food has always been great and I am always amazed at how friendly the staff is. We have always been received and treated like family and that has been every single time we have been there!
I do hope you bring back the blues on Sundays.

Just moved to Crossroads a month ago and my wife and I knew we had to try this place, because it was always busy. Went there and I got the Buffalo Burger and fries, which was amazing. My wife got the chicken fried chicken, which was also really good. Great home-style cooking with a great atmosphere. Only place I know of in the Dallas area that serves 4 different kinds of Shiner Beer. This will definitely be a regular stop for us. Will recommend to everyone I know, see and meet.

Go every chance we get!!: We've always gotten excellent service & food. We plan our trips so that we can eat here every chance possible. We're usually pulling a horse trailer which we can park across the street if there's not room at the restaurant. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!!

My wife and I went to dinner at the Prairie House. We had the banditos for an appetizer. The flavor is outstanding. I could make a meal out these alone and be very satisfied. My wife had the Texas 2-step with chicken and brisket. She loved it. I went for the full rack of ribs. The meat just fell of the bones. We washed it all down with 2 different kinds of Shiner beer and then split a blackberry cobbler for desert. Can't wait to go back!!!!

Just driving by the place you can smell the wood burning and the food, makes one salivate for some Country Cook'n. This is a great place to have lunch or dinner with your family and friends. I usually order the Country Fried Steak and mashed potatoes and gravy, not bad at all! I wouldn't say it has that "Home Made" quality because I basically grew up with country cooking. It has that "small country diner" appeal I guess I could say.

Best BBQ in north Texas. I have been going to the Prairie House for 15 years. The food has always been good. Service can be slow, but always worth the wait. Half pound ribeye on Wednesday for 9.95 is hard to beat!

My husband and I decided to never go back to the Prarie House again. We went during a very slow time and never got waited on. After one person told us she would go get our server, we left after waiting another 10 minutes or more with no one approaching us or greeting us. If they don't want our business we will most certainly give it to another restaurant that cares about it's customers(and has better food!).

The Prairie House is AWESOME!!! I love all their food from their BBQ to their homeade Ranch and Chicken Fried Chicken. Definantly a place to eat. A great family place, definantly not a romantic date place. They also have an outside area where you can listen to music and dine or just have a few drinks with friends. You have to go!!

The prairie house is AMAZING!!! The food is very good! IF you have grown up anywhere in the south you will know what real country cooking is.. As far as the "grease" comment some have made.. well, I find it hard to believe that grilled cheese sandwiches could be greasy.. However, that's just me. My experience has always been pleasant, The Chicken fried steak is ALWAYS crispy on the outside and nice and juicy on the inside. The steaks are always cooked to your specifications, and they have a wide variety of sides to choose from, The wait staff is GREAT about substituting anything for anything. The fact a restaurant gets busy and does not meet your needs upon visiting one time, well I don't have a problem with that.. lol more good southern cooking and hospitality for myself to enjoy!

My family & I have been to The Prairie House numerous times. Sometimes during the week when they have not been so busy and some at night or a weekend when they are busy. The food is good with a large selection to choose from. You can have fried catfish, chicken fried steak, a burger, or whatever. I have never ordered out from them but if I did, I would check my food when I picked it up just like any other restaurant before I left & went home. Too many placed make mistakes and it's generally not the person who took the order, but the person who put it in the box. The staff in the front cannot help a lot of what the staff in the back does. If the problem continues, bring it to the attention of the management.

I love their baby back ribs, they fall off the bone. The only slight complaint I have is the service being a little slow. Food comes out speedy but they tend not to come back to check on you. As far as the price, I think it's as reasonable as you can get for the location and quality.

Mark tried his 'best' 3 times to produce 2 chicken fried steak meals, with one variation: the gravy as a side on one dinner. First shot out: gravy was all over both orders - Second shot: no gravy on hers, no gravy on my mashed 'taters, and no side of gravy. Third try resulted in: what we expected 20 minutes earlier. He blamed his ineptitude on having a busy lunch run, Sunday 9-6-09. So what - get the job done right! The food ended as marginal; you can imagine after multiple trips to the kitchen. Overall 1st experience = 1 star service, 2.5 stars food.If you make customers unhappy in the physical world, they might each tell 6 friends. If you make customers unhappy on the Internet, they can each tell 6,000 friends.

I absolutely love this place! Their food is so delicious. Their service isn't the best at times, I think management is a little too relaxed and teenage servers aren't the most considerate employees at times. But I love the food and the atmosphere is great. I would highly recommend this place!

I live down the road from the Prairie House at Cross Roads and have always been curious. I have been in the mood for briskit and finally decided to try them out.

My mom buys lunch and brings it to my house. When we open the boxes we are surprised to find that we are short one appetizer of mushrooms and my sliced beef plate is actually a sliced briskit sandwich with about 8 french fries and 5 onion rings.

We call to try to correct the matter and are given two displeasing answers. First, you did not order the Mushrooms... So basically we are liars and Two, Can't you just take the bread off and eat the slices. What kind of costumer service are these people running?

Anywho, after we decide we will just never go there I try the sandwich... 5 pieces of dry briskit with a dab of bbq sauce... Never ever again....

I do fined I should actually say something about the food itself.

Briskit was good but dry. Would help if they offered a small container with bbq sauce.

Appetizers were kind of soft but that could of been because of box.

Onion Rings were good and had a beer battered taste to them.

French Fries were blah really. Nothing special.

The Prairie house is a great place to dine. They have old west decor starting with the big stuffed bear as you come into the lobby. They have a great menu chicken fried ribeye to prime rib dinners. My daughters favorite is something with a baked potatoe. When you get a baked potatoe they bring out bowls of bacon, cheese and sour cream. The employess are always friendly. Their prices have seemed to go up from when they were down the road in the smaller restaurant. Even the prices have gone up this place is worth the price, wait or drive. So try it out!

PROS: Potatoe toppings
CONS:

Very unique setting with classic old west decor. Food a bit pricey but worth it. From chicken fried steak to buffalo diners have several choices. The waitstaff is friendly and management is always willing to please.
Set just off of 380 between Aubrey and Crossroads this resturant has been a part of the area for 10+ yrs,
Worth the drive and the time to dine at the Prairie House.
Great for events and parties also.
