“Nice breakfasts”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Breakfasts were classic and well cooked. Service was a bit slow each morning, don't know if the waitresses were overworked or just in general a little bit slow to take orders, refill cofee etc.

“A classic!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

We stopped here for lunch because my hubby loved the place as a SHSU student many years ago. It's rather grungy inside - looks like it's been around since 1945 - and could use a good cleaning in the dining rooms. That said, lunch was amazingly good and service was good, too. Guess there's something to be said for nostalgia.

“so smoky inside”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

The food wasn't bad - not the best chicken fried steak in town as some claim but was pretty good. But even on the non-smoking side, it was terrible, so if you don't mind enduring the smoke, it is worth a try.

“Great Homestyle Cooked Southern Meals”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Whenever I want a stout country breakfast, I rather go to Cafe Texas than to those mundane - chain restaurants - yesterday I ran into an old friend and we decided to go to Cafe Texan for an early lunch - fried chicken was on the daily lunch special menu and it was deelicious!! - some of the best in Huntsville - I wish that they would serve it daily - unfortunately these days, it is a grueling task to find good home-style country fried chicken in Huntsville - to accompany the perfectly fried chicken, I had mac and cheese and collard greens and a roll - Cafe Texan is the greatest in my book for breakfast and lunch with old fashioned charm and it does not cost you an arm and a leg - very good value - will visit again soon especially if fried chicken is on the menu

“Great food, down home atmosphere”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

They say, "Go whee the locals go for good food..." Well, this is the place. Across the street from the courthouse. I think this may be the oldest restaurant in Huntsville. I have eaten here twice (so far). The chicken fried steak is as good as you will find anywhere. Same with the fried chicken gizzards. Food is hot and fresh. All the locals are very friendly, as is the staff.
