Hot water cornbread-the best!

If you want southern cooking at its finest, you can't beat the Kleer-Vu lunchroom for the best fried chicken and hot water cornbread that you've ever eaten.

This was the first time I visited the lunchroom with my husband. We are from Chattanooga and wanted Good Southern Soul-Food (with-out me having to cook). I first felt like I was in an episode of Seinfeld (the soup natzi), The staff was rushing us, it felt as if you could not take the time to decide what you wanted,... More

Not easy to find, and the building has little to recommend it. A small place with food served cafeteria style. Not a large selection to choose from, but what they had was authentic Southern food cooked the way Mama used to make it. I loved it, as did my wife and daughter. Friendly staff, and the patrons were down-home folks... More

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 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
