Description: Since 1929, Blue Bonnet Cafe has been the place to see your neighbor or friends, catch up on what is happening around town, or stop when you're just passing through. Good food and friendly greetings are what we're all about. In fact, they've made us world famous. Our menu has something for everyone, from salads and sandwiches to chicken-fried steak and pot roast. We also serve breakfast all day and make our soups from scratch every day. Stop in and enjoy all your favorites. Oh, and don't forget to save room for a piece of one of our legendary pies.

If you like homestyle cooking - this is a good stop. The chicken-fried steak was tasty and a very nice salad is offered as one of the sides. Fried okra was very good. Then there was the pie!!! Mile-high meringue - lemon and chocolate pies were very good! If going thru this area again, may or may not return. But...one of those stops everyone needs to make at least once.

Boiled ribs, over cooked carrots, weird tasting spinach, average mashed potatoes, awful biscuits, and a so-so apple pie. No reason to go back. I have no idea why it is popular.

The Bluebonnet has a long and storied history, having served generations of Texans and celebrities as well. Their pies are well known, and their chicken fried steak/chicken fried chicken are among the best. Those plates come with 3 sides, and there are plenty to choose from. Top it off with a gracious and experienced wait-staff, and you'll understand why you might have to wait in line to be seated.

Food was ok at best. I know they were busy but it could have been better. Biscuits and toast both dry, scrambled eggs were greasy, bacon was like shoe leather.... Hopefully they were just having a bad day but my visit wasn't good.

We thought that with all the hype that the pie happy hour was a bid deal. We didn't think so - it was like the drink (tea & water) that we had with the meal were none free and you coule get a piece of pie for $3.00.
