Stopped for lunch at 1:30 when the close at 2. You could tell because the bread was stale. The chicken fried steak was more batter than steak. The mashed potatoes were very dry. The buttered spinach was fine and the banana pudding was okay. The sweet tea wasn't very sweet. The waitress was very nice and helpful. Due to the... More

We stopped by Roy's Cafe on a Monday afternoon during a drive from Dallas to Houston. I've been in a million Texas cafes because I relish the environment and the feel of them. This one was no exception in that you walk through the door and you tele-transport back at least 50 years. The booth seats were well worn, and... More

Roy's is a small town cafe - good food, good fellowship, good and helpful service. You will enjoy eating at this cafe. I feel it is good value for the cost.

My hubby and I stopped in on the way from Dallas to Houston to see downtown Corsicana. It is a nice historical area with many antique shops. We had lunch at Roy's for $5.25 each. My hubby really liked the fried catfish and the broccoli and cheese. My broccoli and cheese was not hot enough for my liking, but the... More

Ordered a Southwest Salad at 11:35 A.M. Finally got it at 12:10 p.m. because someone in the kitchen didn't know what kind of chicken to use. Ridiculous. Time to close this institution and reoopen under new management.

We stopped in for a quick lunch. Cute place, nostalgic atmosphere. The Texas grilled cheese with bacon was very good and also the onion rings. The onion rings were considered a side; so when we paid the bill and mentioned they were not listed on the ticket we found they were included. Very nice and courteous wait staff too.
