Great low prices on "American" fare. My husband and I enjoy eating here in a spot in Katy that seems to have been untouched by the rapid development around it.

On Sundays after service, we have a group that enjoys going around town to various places for our Sunday lunch. Texas Tradition has always been a favorite. They are very accommodating with a friendly staff. The menu has a good variety and can usually handle large crowds. My personal favorite is the chicken fried steak.

Good food and a good value. Music on Friday evenings and a friendly atmosphere. Kids are welcome and the menu has a good variety of options. Located in old town Katy, if you weren't local you might drive by and not stop in for a local treat.

Went in for a late lunch on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Three people in our group and we were seated immediately and a server appeared promptly and took our drink orders. The menu is fairly extensive and covers the basic Texas Cafe fare, from salads, burgers, chicken, and the ever present chicken fried steak. Two of us ordered the CFS... More

We waited an hour for our food and when people who came in long after us were served, we flagged down the waiter who said he would check on our order. We watched him poke at the register then avoid looking at us. He then served dinners to a family who had come in less than 15 minutes earlier and... More

Good food, take the kids, or the entire baseball team. Sit on the patio on nice days. Worth a repeat visit. Friendly servers.

Stepping in you immediately slow your pace and are prepared to sit and stay awhile. Relaxing atmosphere and hometown hospitality. Great chicken fried steak!

I've driven by here many times, but have never stopped. Well, I finally got an opportunity to try it out when a business partner suggested it. It was nothing like what I anticipated, but that was a good thing! The place was brightly lit, oddly decorated, and had a bit of an unfinished-garage feel to the inside. There was only... More

Yup, I capitalized that as though it's a proper noun. Because it kind of is. The chicken fried steak is always enjoyed by the hubs. I usually get a chicken salad or something. Everything is always good. Service can be a little dicey -- sometimes it feels like they don't have enough waitstaff on the floor for the lunch rush.

My wife and I ate there recently looking for something different and are glad we went. The food was excellent and so was the service. Fried mushrooms are great! Would definitely go back whenever we're in Katy. Nice variety on menu. Two thumbs up!!!
