Historic Cafe that still maintains Service, Quality, Friendliness and great value

Trip adisor helped us find Roys in the beautifully renovated downtown Corsicana. It maintains the historic charm after decades of service and retains the value of a "Lunch Special", so well remembered from my childhood

They cook to order, the food is good, the wait staff is friendly, nice atmosphere is nice--kind of like a step back in time.

This is one of the most popular breakfast places in town. If you are going on Saturday, either get there early, or be prepared to wait for a table or booth. Does have seating at the counter also. Good place for a great price.

Was here to try the Chicken fried steak. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. Next time will try breakfast items instead.

Been there for breakfast multiple times, lunch a few times, but it is the breakfast that I find most memorable. Order you eggs anyway you want and they are going to come to your table just the way you like them, it don't matter if its on the menu that way or not. Down home country breakfast just the way...

This is a great place to stop to have lunch. Tried the Chicken Fried Beef with green beans, mashed potatoes, drink and dessert all for one price. The Bread Pudding was the best I have ever tried. Will go back again!

Great coffee didn't need anything added to it just black. Food was hot and delicious. The place looks like it did back in the 60's! Wait staff... More

Roy's has a nice, casual, homey feeling. The waitstaff was great. People greeted each other as they came in making it obvious that Roy's is a local favorite. That being said, the food was a little on the bland side. The chicken and rice had no flavor and the green beans came out of a can. I loved the mashed... More

Positives: outstanding home-style cooking, welcoming waitstaff, charming decor Negatives: limited hours, parking Before last week, we only went to Corsicana, Texas for two things: historic buildings and the Collin Street Bakery. Now, we've added "Roy's Cafe" to the list of reasons to return. Our most recent visit came the day after Christmas. We traveled from Dallas to Corsicana specifically to... More
