We wanted to try a local cafe for breakfast, rather than sticking with the hotel breakfast. I had the eggs mixed with tortillas, jalapeños, and tomatoes. It was very good. No additional cost for substituting biscuits for the toast. Many of the breakfasts included coffee or tea in the cost. Good coffee. Good biscuits and gravy.

This small town diner has been around for many years and has a loyal customer base. Food ranges from breakfast items to sandwiches, fried entrees, Mexican food, and Sunday lunch specials. My favorites are the waffles with fresh berries and fried chicken on the breakfast menu and chicken-fried chicken livers with gravy. Good pies, which can be ordered whole.

Chaf In is one of those places that just makes you feel good. It's got that hometown, small town diner feel with plenty of good eats. I don't think I've ever eaten anything but breakfast there but the breakfast is good. Not overly roomy and there are times when it feels a little crowded. But, we have no negative thing... More

This is the best place in Cleburne for breakfast. Their lunch specials are good priced, and the train going around the top is an added plus for children. They have homemade chips and salsa, a great Mexican plate, and any resturant that goes to the trouble to serve homemade french fries is at the top of my list. I have... More

I had always heard good things about this place, so we decided to go and see for ourselves, Thursday July 28 at approximately 3:30pm. I am very sure that this restaurant was wonderful at one time.... I love the concept, home cooked country food. Modest decor. Should be a comfortable place to eat. Well..... We walked in and just stood... More

The decor is Santa Fe Railroad and there are some cool items sitting around the dining room. The service was good but, the food was average. I'm thinking breakfast must be their strong suit. It is served all day. I had the Ruben sandwich and I think the corned beef was a little on the old siide. The brisket was... More

Long time favorite in Cleburne. We had lunch after prowling the antique stores and it was really good. I think I ate everything but the peel on my lemon. The chicken fried steak was excellent as was my wife's pimento cheese. Frequent iced tea refills and very good service.

I always have top notch service here and it's cheap but very good food! You get a lot of bang for your buck!! Seating is limited and it gets crowded as it is right in the heart of downtown

We took a ride to Cleburne for lunch this last weekend. The Chaf In Restaurant in downtown Cleburne was open and busy, so we took a chance. The menu has all the expected dishes for a diner in Texas, and some that are not expected. We had the Sliced Brisket Dinner, although this is not a barbecue place the brisket... More
