“Excellant food but very expensive for cafeteria food.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

I enjoy the food at Cleburnes but I find it very expensive.

I recently went there an had one entree....roast beef, one side...peas and carrots, and one piece of pie. I had water to drink and the cost was almost $14.00.

I found that shockingly expensive.

I will think twice before I go back because of the price.....

“BIG portions of down home comfort food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

You will not go wrong with anything on this menu--its big portions of yummy comfort food. Not gourmet food--but stuff like turkey and dressing, roast beef, fried chicken--its the best cafeteria style food you will likely ever eat

This was my first visit. The food was terrific! It was a bit pricy but the portion sizes more than enough

“Yummy comfort food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Cleburne Cafeteria is well known for their home cooked comfort food. Their turkey and dressing is a popular choice. Soups and salads are also a healthy option. Home cooked veggies are also available to have as a side item. Don't pass up the dessert. They have delicious German Chocolate Cake! Just try it! You won't be sorry.
