Unpretentious place with surprisingly good food. Our group of 6 was seated quickly . Service was attentive and fast, so perfect for families with kids. Each dinner came with a side or two, and they were so good that we greedily tasted each others' side dishes . The sweet potato casserole was amazing. Plus a basket of mixed breads. Total... More

Ate dinner here the other night. Ordered the country fried steak. i have been to a few places in texas where the steak is so big it is on a plate by itself. Not here. The steak was good. Nice flavor, potatoes were homemade and slaw was good. The corn needed a little help. maybe a homemade cream sauce or... More

I have to start by saying how fantastic the service was, our server Renee was so friendly, prompt and knowledgeable. The food didn't disappoint either! We each got something different and everything was amazing. The loaded mash potatoes, chicken fried steak, sweet potato casserole, fried chicken breast and the corn bread were all flavorful and delicious. The prices were all... More

We're new the area & have heard good things about The String Bean. Our first impression was just ok, the food was good but it wasn't served very warm & some of the sides tasted like they'd just been sitting in the back all day waiting to be served up. We'll give it another try since it's a good, close... More

Just have always liked the way southern style favorite foods are prepared at the String Bean. Love the steamed squash, salads, and catfish. Cobbler with ice cream is a good dessert. Take advantage of the reasonably priced senior menu.
