The first thing you notice about Cleburne Cafeteria is the family atmosphere. It's run by the Mickelis family - Nick Mickelis, the patriarch, emigrated to Houston from Greece. While wating for your food, take a look at all the family photographs. It really is like being in their home.
This is a cafeteria, so you do wait in line for food. The wait is generally no more than 10 minutes, even during the lunch crush, but it's worth it. You start out ordering a salad, then the entree & vegetables, & last but not least, desert and a drink. Pay the cashier, grab a seat (seating can be a little limited, especially at lunch), and enjoy your meal. Choose from all sorts of dishes: beef, chicken, turkey, fish, just to name a few.
I'm rather partial to Cleburne Cafeteria, & always try to stop in when I'm in Houston. I feel a certain warmth whenever I'm there. And, the food's good too.
Favorite Dish: I especially like the chicken breast and dressing, served from an ice cream scoop! Add a big hunk of chocolate custard pie, and I'm a happy guy.
