This place is amazing for soul food! If you are into turnip greens, pinto beans and fried cornbread, THIS is your place! Nothing any better, even your grandmas!

I am a Yankee, at least that is what my wife from Alabama has called me for the last 35 years. Southern Cooking is something I new nothing about until I joined the Army in the 70's.I was born in NYC & grew up in New Jersey. I new what mashed potatoes, Green beans and corn was but had no... More

I have not been to Kleer-Vu since around 1998. It was just as I remembered it! Good Southern food, in an atmosphere of comfort. It was a Tuesday and they were busy! It is good to see after all these years that people continue to support a local eatery. Make sure you get extra hot water corn bread!

Found this spot on day when we first moved up to Murfreesboro, decided we would try it. The food (all) was amazing. The people who run it are wonderful. The food by far is the best I have ever had! Its hard to find veggies that are so fresh and seasoned perfectly. Can't get enough of it!

I absolutely love this place. The food is all made from scratch (even the mashed potatoes) and the veggies are always off the charts. The same person has owned it for years and its just one of those great down home places. You will see everyone from bankers to lawyers to the construction worker come in there to eat. While... More

Kleer-Vue is one of those unique places that you take your out of town guest too. The reason is because there is no other place like it. Southern cooking at it's best. Cafeteria style service. Meat and three or two :-). Choose the fried chicken, ribs, other main entree does not matter it's delicious. Vegetables blackeyes peas my favorite. But... More

You've heard the phrase,"finger licking good"? Well that certainly describes this lunchroom. It isn't much to look at and in fact it's called a cafeteria but it's a great find. If the locals are going to eat here, you know you've found your self a real gem. Very folksy atmostphere and the "sassy" gal behind the counter was a hoot!... More

My family has enjoyed lunch at Kleer Vu for years. It is truly a Murfreesboro favorite for soulful Southern food. They know how to do fried chicken right! Mashed potatoes like your grandmother made. Turnip greens are the best around. Black eyed peas, cooked cabbage, macaroni and cheese, fried corn, and okra are a few more of our favorites. There... More
