A solid, albeit unspectacular, experience

On a November Sunday evening in Leakey, your options for a meal out are pretty limited. My wife had some enchiladas and I had fajitas. Service was quite friendly, although not particularly fast. I had the distinct feeling that everyone in the restaurant knew everyone else, with the exception of... read more

Mill creek is the only buffet for miles! Its nice to have that option. The food is good. Not great, but good. I have been here several times. Family dinners, lunch with coworkers, or stopping in after little league games. Staff is friendly, place is clean, prices are acceptable.

Not too many places to eat on a Sunday night in Leakey, so we stopped at the Mill Creek Cafe. We were pleased with our choice. Friendly waitress and a great burger. Topped it off with huge slice of Apple pie. We will be back the next time we are in Leakey.

I'll be quick. For breakfast I had three eggs, three slices of bacon, two sausage patties, hashbrowns and a homemade biscuit for 10 bucks. All good, except the hashbrowns were a little dry and could've used some onions. But that's a small complaint. The café is located just on the south edge of town across from stripes. There are plenty... More

Only had a quick lunch here, but it was great! The onion rings are wonderful. The coconut meringue pie is as good as it gets. Very friendly atmosphere. Definitely will return.

II honestly believe the left overs that are not served the day before are served in the buffet the following day. There is always smothered steak that looks and tastes like left over chicken fried steak with some kind of grave or sauce on it. There are many meat dishes like that, They do have homemade pies and they are... More

Wednesday morning after Memorial Day and nothing in town was open. We were the only people in the place until just as we left. Service was quick and friendly, bought the t-shirt. Cannot recall what I had to eat but it was adequate.

Love the "at home" taste of the buffet choices. Definitely will eat here again. Service was prompt, friendly, and good.
