Kleer-Vu Lunchroom is basic Murfreesboro. First...let me tell you about the cornbread. It's hot water cornbread. I don't know what that means, and I don't care. The cornbread itself is worth the trip. Green beans were great; loved the mac and cheese. Fried chicken is a good staple too of course. Local dive? Yep. Worth it.

Really good home cooking type food. Perfect portions of tasty food. Best hot water cornbread. Don't go for the decor but do try the food. It won't disappoint

Good old fashioned southern cooking, cheesy little dive with its own eclectic charm. Would have given 5 stars but my food was warm not HOT, but it was delicious.

My family loves kleervu! My kids are now 15 and 13 and it is their favorite. They were raised in this food. Fried chicken, mac n cheese and peach cobbler are the favorites. Oh and the hot water corn bread!!! Great country cooks preparing the food. No ambiance-so skip this if you want romance. Perfect for a home cooked lunch.... More

This was the first time I visited the lunchroom with my husband. We are from Chattanooga and wanted Good Southern Soul-Food (with-out me having to cook). I first felt like I was in an episode of Seinfeld (the soup natzi), The staff was rushing us, it felt as if you could not take the time to decide what you wanted,... More

Not easy to find, and the building has little to recommend it. A small place with food served cafeteria style. Not a large selection to choose from, but what they had was authentic Southern food cooked the way Mama used to make it. I loved it, as did my wife and daughter. Friendly staff, and the patrons were down-home folks... More
