Startz Cafe is THE local eatery in Startzville. Local hang out for Breakfast . Chicken fried steak or fried catfish can't be missed for lunch or dinner. Homecooking with small town charm. Can't miss this one.

This is an old timer cafe, service is not the best or friendly. Bring cash as they are not update with credit cards. They don't really seem to care about service. Food is ok for the area.

Good food, like an old hometown place, with real American breakfast. Good service, not expensive. Worth the stop.

Small town cafe that's older than dirt but still serving plain ole country food. Hard to beat the prices. Cheaper than Mackey D's and q0 timer healthier n tasty. Serve daily specials. Worth dining there especially for breakfast. Great service.

This was a terrific breakfast! Everything was hot, fast, and cooked to order. The staff was friendly and happy to recommend other local activities. Definitely recommend the homemade biscuits and gravy!
