My friends and I stopped by here based on TripAdvisor recommendations. Home cooked food - we tried roast beef, chicken fried steak, and catfish. My friend said the yeast rolls were wonderful. I wasn't quite as happy about the sign on the restroom, though. "Different" people not welcome - even in a single stall, locked door bathroom.

We stopped here based on reviews I previously read and we were absolutely delighted with this choice! Our breakfasts were absolutely wonderful & their biscuits and gravy were delicious! We definitely left "full" and will recommend to others as well as eat here again!

Thanks to a quick search on Trip Advisor, we had a tasty lunch in this small town diner. We both had burgers which were quite juicy and delicious. The street front was darling with a collection a painted pianos decorating the walk. We were on a back roads trip starting in Indianapolis and ending in Austin.

My wife and I met a couple here for breakfast. We each had something different. The quality of the food was very good. We loved the friendliness and professionalism of the folks who served us, from being seated to served. Restaurant itself has quaint charm. Menu was reasonably priced and it's down in the historic part of town. We would... More

Our family tried Roy's on our return home day. We found this to be a pleasant experience. The service was good & the food was good. Had the breakfast burrito which was enough to satisfy.

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
