Gainesville's True Family Cafeteria

Gainesville's largest and most popular Cafeteria. Wide variety of Southern-style cuisine. You'll see a myriad of local personalities on a daily basis. If you're in the mood for Southern Style cooking, this is the place. Excellent value for the quality/variety.

For 9$ bucks I had a decent salad, piece of chicken, mashed potatoes, a biscuit and drink. Plenty of food but nothing particularly special bout the meal.

Hot fresh breakfast with lots of choices. A hotbed of activity. If you don't know anyone when you get there, you will when you leave. Your mama would approve of you eating here!

We visited the Pearl Nix Parkway location for a quick dinner after traveling. My first impression was not very good. It's buffet style and everything is individually priced per serving. All the food is self serve. The bldg is a little run down, but at least is clean. The dark meat fried chicken was not cooked long enough. The breast... More

I have never had a bad meal her and never had bad service. the location is convenient for locals as well as people passing through. plenty of parking but sometimes gets so packed with customers that you may have to walk a short distance.

You can get chicken several different ways and the fish is always real nice. Home cooked veggies every day. There service staff is friendly and if you don't have time to... More

If you like southern food this is the place to go. The food is cook very well. The only thing I don't like is the price of each vegetables. BUT, you get a lot of food. Have left over for the next day. Will go back.
