So grateful they have a salad bar! It was decent place to eat. There is real food served with the salad bar and it's inexpensive, relatively speaking. We had a one trip salad bar for about $5 each. Bottomless runs less than $10. Plates are not huge, but larger than a side salad. We piled it high! Fresh cut pineapple... More

We stopped in for lunch on the way in to Leakey to visit family for Christmas. We were hopeful as there were quite a few cars parked there. Turns out it was a large group of construction workers. We were a party of 4 including 2 kids. The kids liked their typical kids meals. Husband and I had the buffet.... More

Stopped in for a quick dinner while in Leakey. This was good food, plenty to eat and an unhurried atmosphere. Family owned and very good home cooking.

My husband and I had dinner here one evening after hiking all day at Lost Maples. So glad we went! Food was excellent and the staff is very friendly! The salad bar is amazing with all fresh veggies! Will definitely be back when we make our way back down!!

The waitress said the burgers were wonderful, so I decided to try one. It was just so-so - kind of dry. Service was nothing to write home about, but not unpleasant.

I have eaten here twice now. Once with a large group (14 people) and once just my wife and I. Both times were great! The wait staff was very kind and attentive to both the large group and to the two of us. The buffet is fresh, tastes great and has a wide variety of meat and vegetables. The salad... More

Breakfast places are limited in this small community but Mill Creek Cafe will not disappoint. They have a very good breakfast menu and offer a buffet if you prefer. We spent a weekend in the area riding motorcycles on the surrounding curvy, hilly roads. Had a great breakfast here both mornings.
