We go for breakfasts and sandwiches.
The Waitstaff is very nice and attentive
Food is always hot and fresh. I've never in 12 years had a bad or less than great experience there!

Clean, Comfortable surroundings and very good food!

“Smelled sour around salad bar and like dirty ashtray thru out”
Reviewed October 8, 2011

Food was fair. Salad bar quality was low avg to avg. The dirty ashtray smell of this older restaurant overwhelms you as you enter the door... fortunately there was a no-smoking section in the back (helped some). The crowning point was while I was washing my hands in the dirty bathroom... the dark-haired-pony-tailed waitress came out of the stall (with her serving apron on) and blew right by me without even washing her hands! YUK!

“A Good Stop on the way to SFA”
Reviewed September 30, 2011

We stopped here for breakfast on the way to SFA one morning and were very glad we did.
Charlie's Lonestar Family Cafe is right off of HW 59 Just south of the 59 bypass split. It is a Diner/Truck Stop Restaurant serving up real food hot off the grill.
The breakfast options were hearty and reasonably priced. Our waitress was friendly and helpful.
The exterior of the building with the pot-holed parking lot may cause person to second guess stopping in but the interior is clean and inviting.
Nothing fancy. Nothing over-the-top.
When traveling on US 59 south of Livingston, I suggest planning a little extra time and take a moment to enjoy an old-fashioned Diner experience.
