If you like the southern country style cooking - this is the place. Everyone is friendly and will see to you having a good experience in southern eating.

Meals are usually fairly good.During lunch if you get the special it is fast but if you order off of the menu it is very slow. The place is understaffed usually.

Now this is the real deal in country joints in South Central Texas. Atmosphere is not pretend - it just is. Chicken fried steak is the real thing. Don't miss the fried pickles as they were done just right. Great service. Note the small piece of paper on the corner of the table. It is a running list of your... More

Texas Star is a good little restaurant in the sleepy little town of New Ulm. We recently had breakfast there and really enjoyed it with the exception of the coffee. The coffee was terrible. The locals told us that the hours are limited so to always check before going. Suprisingly they aren't open at night. When you are the only... More

Texas small town cafe dining at its best. Have been here several times, both for breakfast and lunch and have never been disappointed. Breakfast consists of the usual cafe fare, eggs, hash browns, pancakes, lots of bacon and sausage and coffee. The prices are vey reasonable and you will not leave hungry. Go with the special of two eggs, sausage,... More

Nothing fancy, casual in the country. More than adequate servings. They make the best hamburgers. Prompt service, but usually the waitress is in a rush. Specials served.

I went there after my golfing at THE FALLS. Very clean, and it reminds you of a old fashion diner with great service and food .

We went to Texas Star for dinner and I think we should have gone for breakfast instead. Beautiful drive out there for sure:) The tea wasn't fresh:( We ordered the fried mushrooms and corn nuggets for an appetizer. They were ok... A lot of breading. Then I ordered the grilled shrimp skewers with a baked potato and salad. I was... More

Definitively we are no expert on American cuisine, however we have been travelling in US for three weeks, mainly around the south, did 5000 miles and visited great number of different establishments. This one was exactly I would have expected Texas diner should look like. Of course this is ain’t Paris but the food was perfect for a place, staff... More
