“Legit Home Cooking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Wear stretchy pants!! After a short wait in line we were seated and drink orders taken. Everything on the menu is mouth watering. I don't think you can make a bad choice. My only complaint is that they don't offer key lime pie; my daughter's favorite.
They only take cash or checks. No cards.

“Landmark establishment - gotta eat here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

There's a reason this place has been in business since 1929: the food, the service, the value. We stop here whenever we are headed up 281 north. Very good home cooked meal, especially the pot roast and chicken fried steak. You'll get rolls + 3 sides to choose from. Service is fast and efficient. Pies are wonderful ~ either have a slice there or buy a whole pie and take it with you. It's cash only, so come prepared.

“If we lived here, they would know us...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

...because we would be in here ALL the time. However we were only in town for two days. We came in for breakfast and enjoyed the atmosphere and especially the great breakfast.The biscuits are like a desert, they are so good! Our personable waitress is a hot chocolate artist, with the whipped cream and drizzled chocolate on top and it was delicious! Of course we went back for pie happy hour after our tour of the Flat Creek vineyard nearby.Can't wait to return!

“The Blue Bonnet Rocks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

We arrived at 11:45 on a Monday. This was our first visit & the line was down the hall & we were wondering how long it would take to be seated. Not to worry, this cafe is a model of efficiency! We were seated in 10 minutes & were greeted by a very friendly server. Our food arrived quickly & was wonderful! Basic cafe fare, but delicious with many menu choices. The pie is fantastic & reasonably priced, buy a whole pie, you'll love it---we'll be back!

“Great family style cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

The Bluebonnet Cafe is a Must Stop for anyone wanting a delicious LARGE piece of homemade pie or just a good home cooked meal...away from home. This restaurant is an icon for the Texas Hill Country! The meals are reasonably priced and breakfast is served all day. Try the chicken fried steak and three sides... one of my favorites.
