“bas Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

If there is Haute Cuisine, then Cleburne is Bas Cuisine; if you want macaroni and cheese, gelatin salads, chicken fried chicken and desserts topped with 4 inch high meringue this is your spot. Good service on refills on good iced tea, and heaping servings-this is your place. Yes your other diners look like an AARP convention so don't go until noon to avoid a long line.. This is fine comfort food.

“Best option for a cafeteria”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

This is probably the best cafeteria you can find. Everything is made fresh! All of the vegetables are fresh, and if they don't look up to standard when they buy, they won't buy it. I do find the squash casserole to be too sweet for my taste. A little pricey, but serving sizes are very large. I have been to some places where they think they gave you too much and scrape the extra off. Not here, they pile it on. Don't worry, they walk around offering tea, water and to go containers.

“Best Restaurant Cafeteria in Houston - we ate there twice in 3 days!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

Best Restaurant Cafeteria in Houston - we've eaten there twice in 3 days while on a visit to Houston from Honolulu!
Delicious fresh, home-cooked meals; really good coffee, out of this world lemon chess pie and coconut cream pie topped with George's personal service.

“Food is average for a cafeteria but pricier than Luby's”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Was average- but better than Luby's.
Always a huge line, so leave yourself plenty of time if going for lunch or dinner.
Broccoli was overcooked.
