We always plan a trip to the Star Cafe when we know we are going anywhere near the Stockyards on a trip to Ft. Worth. I have been going here for almost thirty years. It is always consistently excellent!

Stumbled on the Star Café on a Saturday night after all the other restaurants told us the wait would be over an hours. A nice gentleman greeted us outside and had one table available for a party of three. We were pleasantly surprised. This is a great, laid back restaurant with friendly staff and down home cooking.

This is down-home cooking in a down-home cafe. We enjoy the waitresses, the food taste good, there is good value, and we like the toned down atmosphere of a smaller community. Don't take your wife here on our anniversary but for everyday eating it is great.

We had the prime rib. It was delicious. Our waitress was great. They have a juke box that plays older country music which was great.

Small little place in the stock yards with fairly extensive menu. Our group had steak salad, burgers, chicken salad and chopped steak. Service is good. Food is pretty tasty. Salads were nice and fresh. Prices about normal for this touristy part of town.

We have been coming here for several years, not on a regular basis, just when we have the opportunity, and it has always been consistently good. We absolutely love the burgers, bacon cheeseburger and chili burger. Additionally the onion rings, mmm, mmm. Don't miss this place

Compared to other choices nearby this place is just as tasty but a little less expensive. No wait. Tenderloin medallions great value, very tender and big portion. Meatloaf special was really good. Very good juicy burger.

Service efficient. Ordered a chicken salad, which was delicious and the chicken was juicy and well cooked we also ordered a chilli burger which was a good size and came with a portion of fries which were made from real potatoes. All in all a good start to our stay in Fort Worth.

This resturant is the perfect one for the historic Fort Worth Stockyards area. It has rustic old time decor with happy waitresses! The food is authentic and excellent with large protions! Enjoy a local beer and enjoy!

The service was a bit surly to start but our server certainly got friendlier as our lunch progressed. One course each of chilli burger with fries and a Cajun chicken salad. Good burger and good chilli. Cajun chicken very well cooked, very good flavour and moist. Good food at reasonable price.
