Cleburne Cafeteria

3606 Bissonnet Houston, TX 77005 | Kirby-West U | 713-667-2386

Location Description:

Sure, the institution that once boasted a retro, school-cafeteria feel has given way to the neotraditional design trend of West University Place, but the food is still good. Cafeteria standards like roast beef, chicken-fried steak and tasty fried fish are complemented by Greek fare like moussaka. Memorable sides include the sweet, cracker-topped version of yellow-squash casserole and America's favorite comfort food, macaroni and cheese.
