After Cleburne Cafeteria burned, it has been rebuilt with many additions and improvements. They now have valet parking, honor credit cards, have wine and steaks that you select from the meat counter and then cooked to your specifications. My friend and I ate lunch there...More

Planned a late lunch- 1:30 - to avoid crowds and still had a difficult time finding a parking space. We did have to wait in line but it gave us the opportunity to scope out our food choices! I had beef liver with onions, green...More

We couldn’t wait for them to reopen and went for lunch the second week. They’ve done a nice job of decorating and everything looked new. It was nice to see they salvaged so many paintings from George’s family. However, I must say the food was...More
