Very good food--Not so good service!

We like to go to Clem's as a family, because everyone can find something they like to eat--hamburgers, barbecue, steaks, or seafood. It's all good! Service, however, can be awful! It ranges from "We are out of bread" when other tables are getting bread, to "We have no lemons or limes" when they... read more

This is real Texas. The barbecue, steaks, and sides are the real thing. The waitresses chat with you, like they've known you forever. The javelina and white tail deer mounted around the place make you think you're at home, or maybe your brother-in-law's. It's good stuff. As good as it gets. Clem's is our go-to place when we have out-of-town... More

you have a variety of food to choose from, steaks, burgers, barbecue and desserts. And many sides. Great family atmosphere and friendly workers. Clem is a wonderful friendly guy. Met him while we were there.

Clem Mikeska's BBQ,a family owned business has been a staple in Temple for decades. Food is great and nice newer atmosphere is a plus. They also provide a tremendous catering service.

Clem's offers good BBQ at a fair price. Pick brisket or sausage or chicken, it's all good. The waitress aim to please and the new building offers a good atmosphere. Right off IH-35 it's easy to get to.

All of the BBQ is always great but my personal favorite is the chicken fried steak. Lots of sides offered. Friendly staff. Great Texas style atmosphere inside. Great place to take out of town friends and family or for business meetings.

In Temple, Texas you have the best place to order out or go inside. The food is fabulous and you get a very nice choice of meats and sides. Don't forget the home made bread and desserts. Yummy! We had a wedding catered by them and everyone gave high compliments to their staff, the service, the food and the cost... More
