Love the small town charm! Service and food was awesome - our server was very sweet. Real food at real people prices! Cash only though but there is a bank ATM right next door. I've only had breakfast but it was just like being at Granny's breakfast table! Enjoy

Startz Cafe has been there since the 1940's and if you find yourself around Canyon Lake this is a must stop. I have eaten here many times and am amazed that the staff remembers me even though it might be months between visits. I love having breakfast here and higly reccomend the breakfast tacos. One word of caution is they... More

There are many great options on the menu. The food is always great with friendly staff. We often bring out of town guests here for a meal. LOVE their homemade hot sauce. Be prepared with cash or check only.

Cozy small town atmosphere with homestyle cooked meals, and great service. This old establishment has been a staple of Startzville for decades. Bring cash since no credit cards are accepted.

Love going to Startz Cafe on Friday night for catfish night. Honestly, the hamburgers are awesome too! Lots of locals eat breakfast, lunch and dinner here. Definitely good home cooking! Cash only though but worth the effort.

Reminded us of the way things used to be...we had the chicken fried steak, and a burger but the daily special of meatloaf looked good too! We found everyone to be friendly, and the service was great. Our lunch was good homestyle comfort foods, and because they have been around for decades it had a warm atmosphere. Try it if... More

We stopped for lunch and found a great local place. It's been here since the mid 1800's, and building appears to be pretty much the same. It's still run by the original family. They have a daily lunch special which is a great deal ($6.99 including drink and dessert). The food was homemade--rare nowadays to get real mashed potatoes! When... More

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.
