Terrific place with GREAT food! Kind of a throw back to the 50-s...family diner,...lots of old folks eat there as there are specials every night. Value and more bang for your buck. Want good food and not have to pay out the wazoo? Eat here...you will return for more.

If you don't care about atmosphere, but you love good ol' American food, you should love the Goldmine Restaurant on First St. in Garland. Wow! It is so good. Try the all-you-can-eat catfish on Saturday night and enjoy live music at the same time. The catfish is excellent - and so is the music by Tom Hall.

I've never eaten anything that wasn't excellent. My husband did find one thing that wasn't good - the fajitas. Don't go there!

If you don't like smoke, you might not like the restaurant. It still allows smoking and sometimes it is pretty smoky in there. The first time we visited, I thought I would never return because of the smoke. Then the food came and I decided it was too good to let a little smoke keep me away!!!

They did not include the side dish in our order. And we tried calling the phone number on the receipt and fax kept coming on. Then we looked up the phone number and tried calling that and same result. Really frustrating experience

One of only a few restaurants in the area that has live entertainment (on Saturday nights). Wait staff is very friendly. Plenty of food, and they get it to you quickly. Check out music on Saturday nights; fun for everyone.

This place is one of the only restaurants that has live music on Saturday nights; something you wouldnt expect for a restaurant in this price range. And the music is top-notch, the best you will find anywhere. The food was pretty good and the waitresses were very friendly.

Wait Staff/Servers not so friendly, seemed bothered to do their job. Believe me, I do not like to make complaints and I wasn't having a bad day, either! But too much tension in the air, will not go back again!
