This restaurant had a homey and historic atmosphere. The servers were fun and the food was just right for a Texas Cafe, lots of old fashioned breakfast, lunch and dinner items on the menu and a 'daily special with dessert' on a blackboard. The jukebox...More

This Cafe has not changed in 50 years! I was here in the 1970's and it is still the same today. Same jukebox against the wall, same pinball machine, same concrete floors. The food is "home cooked" fresh and good, huge portions. Oh yes, they...More

It is conveniently located as it is on the South end of the lake but they don't do a very good job with breakfast so are not going back.

We went for breakfast and this unassuming cafe was awesome. Everyone had something different and it was all good. Biscuits and gravy yum! Pancakes were great as was the omelet. Caveat- cash only.

The people are very nice and the food comes out at a decent pace, but there really isn't anything outstanding to say about the food. It's not bad, just not good. Starz café has been around forever and has a loyal local following.

This iconic restaurant is still a good place for a solid meal. Don't expect luxury -- concrete floors, non-matching chairs and tables, unlevel parking lot. Try the Swiss-Mushroom Burger, Enchiladas w/chili, or the Friday-night fried catfish.

If you're referring to the evening meal, as my review indicates, supper is served ONLY on Thursday and Friday evenings, and the restaurant doesn't close between lunch and supper times.
