“A must for lovers of good quality food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

The food here is delicious and excellent quality. The prices are reasonable considering the quantity. We found out about this place from some native Houstonians and agree since we returned 2 additional times while we were in town. The service is like from a generation ago and from our first experience, we share food and are able to order additional items. A must for visitors to Houston.

“Like your Grandma cooked”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

A good place for a good amount of tummy filling food like your grandmother would cook so you wouldn't always be saying I'm hungry a few hours after you eat.Its healthy cooked keeping those with health problems in mind.Your plates have large portions and you for sure want eat till the next day with maybe a to go box to take home with you.

“Like Mama Cooks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

Such a great place to enjoy lunch or dinner and eat just what you want! The selection is plentiful and the serving sizes are generous. Especially if you are trying to eat healthy it's a great choice. Now if you want to splurge well the desserts are sinful! I would recommend Cleburne to anyone for a GOOD meal Relaxing Atmosphere and Friendly Staff....

“Excellant food but very expensive for cafeteria food.....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

I enjoy the food at Cleburnes but I find it very expensive.

I recently went there an had one entree....roast beef, one side...peas and carrots, and one piece of pie. I had water to drink and the cost was almost $14.00.

I found that shockingly expensive.

I will think twice before I go back because of the price.....
