Man I had really big time! – We arrived at around 5:00 for free dance lessons and some fajita buffet. My wife and I really needed to get out and spend some fun time together. The dance instructors were polite and fun. Afterwards they served some chicken fajitas and beef along with mexican rice, corn and lettuce sour cream pico de gallo chips and cheese. Beer and drinks were 2.50 for most. We met some very nice couples who were out just as we and we made some new friends. I think. My wife and I really had a Great time Sunday and I expect she will want to come again. Wild West and staff were friendly and the atmosphere was definitely western. Need to take your wife or date out? This is the place!
VERY UNPROFESSIONAL, POOR MANAGEMENT, AND RUDE. – All my friends have been going there for a while and I decided to check it out one day for some dance lessons. I looked up the specials on the Wild West Houston's website and found that they offered dance lessons every Sunday from 4-6:30. The fee was $3 for 18+ for ladies and gents followed by a free fajita dinner. It all looked like a good deal so I went with a friend of mine in hopes of learning the basics of two stepping and what not.
We finally arrived and checked in to buy in under the impression that we were each going to pay $3. The clerk checked our ID's and said that since we were under 21 I was going to have to pay $8 (as a lady) and my friend pay $10( as a gent). I was a bit thrown off maybe thinking that I had misread the website, and there was a line behind us so I didn't want to hold anyone up and agreed to pay the fee. She handed us our ticket stubs (for the free meal) and marked our hands with an "x."
Once my friend and I sat down I looked up the site on my phone just to make sure we haven't been gipped. Sure enough it specifically said:
FREE Dance Lessons (4:30 – 6:00pm)
*complimentary fajita dinner following the dance lessons
$2.50 Bar & Call Drinks
$2.50 Most Domestic Longnecks & Wine
$3.75 Almost Anything Else
$3 ALL NIGHT for 18+
**VIL cards only accepted after 8pm"
This was copied and pasted directly from their site to this.Not even being there for 5 minutes, we went back to speak to the clerk about it and she wasn't very helpful. She said she warned us about the price and that we didn't have to pay the fee. I kindly asked if we can pay the fee as advertised on their website, but all she had to say to us was that specials are subject to change without notice. She also said it's stated on the website. I had to keep scrolling for a while to find that "Specials are subject to change without notice" was indeed written on the website in fine print. "Under what circumstances?" I asked her. She managed to avoid my question and told us that we can either leave or sit down. We asked to speak to the manager and she argued back saying that he was going to tell us the same exact thing. I had to ask her a couple more times before she actually got up to get him. We waited a good 10 minutes before the manager came out.
Sure enough the clerk was right in saying that he was going to tell us the same thing she did. He seemed to already know what was going on without us having to explain the whole dilemma to him. The first thing he said to us was "Do ya'll want out?" We explained that we will pay the fee as stated on the site or we want our money back, and that we were mislead by the intention that we were each going to pay $3. "We hardly ever do this, but here." He said as he was handing us back the $18 we initially paid. Instead of letting us pay the advertised price, he just gave us all the money back as if he'd rather not have us there than make good repertoire with paying customers.
Now why would someone want to go to a place that treats their guests badly, tries to rip them off, and "hardly ever" does refunds?
The bottom line is that it is very unprofessional, they don't honor their word, they don't value customer service, and they are just downright rude people. Very poor management and poor representation of "southern hospitality."
RACIST !!!!! & COMPLETLY RUDE!!!! – THIS PLACE SHOULDNT EVEN BE ABLE TO RECIVE A RATING IT IS DUMB THEY EVEN GET ONE STAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I WILL WARN EVERYONE NOT TO GO HERE!

Great smoke free friendly place – I hated to see several bad reviews. I'd think bad too if I parked my car in Wild West parking lot and walked next door or walked in WW then walked into the next club then came out to see my car towed right past the sign that said parking for WW only. No one likes to admit they are wrong and complain when they get hurt.
I also don't know where the bad vibe from the manager comes from. I/our group go 3 times a week for the past 3 months and I never even came across the need to meet her. Where is she anyway? Who cares. My only 2 complaints is at least 2 of the servers are complete azzholes. Just rude. And another stupid rule is no one person can buy more then one drink at the bar. Or get 2 glasses of water. So if you are buying for your date you have to buy 1, bring it to her then go back for yours. What the hell is that?
Well parking is a problem. Not before 10 but after 10 you are going to be parking up the road some place and walking in but I don't know where those people park. I do see them walking down Richmond to WW though. Security is very good in the parking lot.
Other then that the crowd here is much friendlier then it's nearest competitor Big Texas. It's also cleaner being non smoking. The Sunday buffet is awesome. The choice of music is fine though I strongly feel there is too much swing for a C&W place. They only do 3 waltzes each night, should be more since everyone loves it. Only 3 line dances per night too, should be at least 5 to cover the popular ones in south Texas. And judging by the overloaded line dance crowd, I have a good point.
As I said, I/our group is there 3 nights a week and we have never witnessed one single incident. The unfriendly waitresses should be weeded out. How hard is that? Everyone knows who they are. Snobby b1tches.
Sure it gets crowded after 10:30. What club don't on a weekend night? The good dancers leave and the younger crowd kinda takes over by 11. Few if any know how to dance but to stand in place swaying side to side hoping to cop a feel from a female while the real dancers try to move in the normal counter clockwise direction. I only see this on weekends. Go week nights and have all the room you need to show your creativity on the great floor.
Review For Dancers and Social Patrons – Point of View: This review is for people that WANT TO DANCE.
If your just looking for a place to "hook up" with someone your nights are probably late Wed, late Fridays, and Saturdays. Dancers see paragraph below. It can get very crowded and getting your drink may be an issue. Haven't been towed yet so I can't speak to this.
Music: Fair to poor. The current DJs neither have a good selection of CW or contemporary music at hand. If you go often you'll know the playlist and it sounds dated. Not old enough to be classic and not new enough to be "Hip". The rhythms and mix are only fair. Polkas too slow for true dancers and Waltz too fast. Night club songs (the dance) are weak. Makes me miss the good old days at Tumbleweeds about 3 years ago when the DJ was outstanding because he was a radio DJ and dancer and the mix was old and new and excellent dance music.
2 steps gets lumped in with Polkas into "tweener" sounding rhythms and the songs themselves are not that interesting. Some contemporary fills the air from time to time (rare) but can be Lady Gaga ish.
The Floor: One of the largest and easiest floors left in Houston. Square box with dancing in the center that can differ from the outside (ie People doing polka outside and Cha in the middle). Only dancers care about this sort of thing...but the floor is big and comfortable.
Dancers: The place is now closed on Tuesdays (a "dancer practice night"). Dancers tend to go Friday nights from 7-10pm and Sunday night from 630 to midnight. Thins out around 830pm. If you've never gone before and are curious about dance you might check these nights and times. Most regulars know each other and are religious dancers...so don't be put off if they don't ask you to dance. They tend to stick close to the front door part of the floor.
Drinks: Mixed and Bottled water are okay. Waitress staff is friendly. Some excellent. Some slow.
Parking: Slow nights easy. Busy nights difficult. They do tow if you park there and go next door or across the street. As for towing legit patrons...don't know about that.
Cost: One of the most inexpensive places in town.
Overall: This club was better "back in the day". Currently I can give it just passing marks. If you're from out of town and want a CW experience it's okay. As stated above, if you want a packed night choose Friday or Saturday late. Dancers either know when to go or if your new to town read above. WIth many new options in town lately (Whiskey River, Red River, Midnight Rodeo, West Wind) There might be better options on some nights. I hear that Tuesdays dancers go to West Wind and on Thursdays Whiskey River). Good luck and enjoy.
Good Luck. Enjoy.
Everything About this Place is Horrible!!! – The girl at the door was rude, not friendly at all. That could explain the emptyness of the place on Sat night before 11:00pm. When a crowed did show up Wild West didn't have the staff to serve them.
My husband went to the bar to order a round of drinks for our crew (there were NO waitresses on the floor) and he was told he could only order two drinks at a time... Really??!! We have to keep getting in line to buy a round?!? That dog won't hunt!
The the bartenders were rude, and not enough of them. No security on the dance floor... kids were out there drinking, spilling and breaking bottles on the floor.
Don't waste your time at this dump!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And Wild West didn't deserve one star, but this site made me give one.
Wild West fun – Place is great, drinks are cheap, women are beautiful, and the pool is free on Thursdays.
If you want to find out what a real bartender looks like, check out Jessie. The woman can literally keep 50-60 drinkers contented by herself.
I wouldn't really advise trying to use their parking lot if you're going next door like some of the reviewers did. They pay for their lot and expect the other clubs nearby (e.g. Dave and Busters) to do the same, sorry.
HORRIBLE PLACE with CREDIT CARD SCAM – The staff is very RUDE! They make a carbon copy of all credit cards and refuse to give you your copy upon cashing out. I checked my account the next morning and tehy had over charged me. I called and talked to management and they refused to reimburse me even when I showed them a copy of my reciept. DO NOT waste your time here!!!
GO AT YOUR OWN DETRIMENT. NOTHING SHORT OF ROBBERY. – GO TO THIS place at your own Risk.
They will claim you went to the neighboring club, even though you were inside wild west.
It is unbelievable that these people get away with this ROBBERY.
DO NOT PARK at their lot either. No Parking signs do not exist in most of their lot, and that is a TRAP.
You get towed without warning and you have to cough up $200 plus the frustration of it all.
Citysearch Editorial Review – Throw on your cowboy hat, pull on those boots, and tighten the bolo tie for this swinging Texan-owned and -operated 18-and-up country dance club that occupies a cheeky faux-barn on the Richmond strip. Western revelers young and old alike guzzle longnecks then two-step and line dance under mirrored saddles in lieu of disco balls on a sizable solid oak dance floor that’s flanked by multiple bars. On weekends beauties in Texas flag bikinis and chaps dispense cheap beer while the DJ tosses a little pop and hip hop into the mix. Some of the best drink specials in town make up for the cover charge.
