Memorable | One of the Best
Review by: Jane & Michael Stern
The Texan Café takes its name in earnest. Its menu is a roster of Lone Star fare, including hunks of meat that include ribeyes, strips, filets, and sirloins of seven or fourteen ounces. Beyond steak, there are hamburgers, pepper burgers, and bacon cheeseburgers. Non-beef sandwiches include fried green tomato BLTs, catfish grilled or fried, and even a veggie burger. In fact, a meat-frowner can find great satisfaction in a plate of four vegetables – excellent vegetables – that are themselves suitably Texan.
The side-dish repertoire includes blackeyed peas (a must to accompany chicken fried steak), fried okra, sweet potatoes and baked potatoes, “heavenly lime salad,” butter beans, and eggplant casserole. In our experience, the accompaniments are so good that you may just finish off a serving even before you are finished plowing through your T-bone. But we must warn you: desserts at the Texan Cafe are worthy of a significant appetite reserve. Pies are not to be missed.
One of the best things about The Texas Café isn’t on the menu and isn’t made in the kitchen. It is the sign outside: a larger-than-life bust of a bull hanging over the front of the building.
