All the food is great! All the staff is super nice! Prices are perfect for a family! I wish Austin ,Tx had a place like this. Small and quaint.

Never would have come in if not sent by a local. Everything was homemade. Chips, salsa, veggie soup, mash potatoes, tortillas. My husband ordered chicken fried steak, I had chicken fajitas and my son had the cheesesteak. All 3 were terrific. Don't let the appearance fool you. It may not look like much but the food was great!!!

This location of Tech Cafe is popular with the locals because they offer a nice mix of Burgers, Mexican and Southern Comfort food at reasonable prices. While the dining room is nothing fancy, the service was friendly and our food came out fairly quick. You can get breakfast any time of day, but we both ordered burgers. The sides of... More

Perhaps it was a fluke, but my experience here was forgettable. I have heard thee adage that "you can't mess up breakfast," but Tech Cafe on 50th certainly would argue against that. I ordered the Rib eye steak and eggs, about 8 PM; the server was friendly enough, and busy. The meal arrived promptly, and was dropped in front of... More

When we arrived at breakfast time, the restaurant was packed. It appeared that everyone was a local. We came from out of town headed to Texas Tech University. The restaurant staff was the most organized, friendly, & hard working team we have seen in a long time. It was amazing! We were immediately greeted when we walked in and the... More

I have ate three times at this location and all three times I left satisfied. Its a seat yourself diner that take cash and check only. Its fast paced,people are constantly leaving and arriving. The food is good. I enjoy the breakfast burritos. I enjoyed the carne asada and the chorizo. Give it a try you won't be disappointed.

My wife and I enjoy eating breakfast at the Tech Cafe. Doesn't get better than good food, friendly atmosphere, and a more than reasonable price. Friendly staff and fast service! Love the concept and this restaurant S. on University! Love it!

We were in town from Seattle WA visiting family. After looking through some reviews, we decided this would be a good place to try. First, it's a cafe/diner style place to eat. Nothing fancy, but a nice atmosphere. The staff was friendly (but that seems to be the Texas way as we have yet to run into anybody who isn't... More

Have eaten there 4 times, and have not found anything that has not been good. The chili cheeseburger, hot roast beef sandwich, club sandwich, Mexican plate all were great. Still trying to find something I don't like but this may be impossible here. The prices are very cheap for the quantity of food given and the service is great.
