I love this place. This is the first time back in almost 10 years. It hasn't changed. Good salad, good chicken fried steak, great fries and the best onion rings ever. When going here don't forget the pie, amazing.

We are here during a long weekend away with the family. The atmosphere is pure small town Texas charm. Friendly service, country decor, and a menu that offers a lot of comfort. Our servers were friendly and prompt, we never had empty glasses. The menu is full of the expected items, and we ordered a chicken fried steak, New York... More

Three of us stopped in for lunch. It is a very cool place, and the interior decor is like a throw-back to the Wild West era. Our Server was Elyssia and she was very friendly, efficient, and helpful..... did a great job! Ordered various burgers, including Lamb Sliders. Everything tasted great! Cost for 3 persons, including soft drinks was $26.... More

Driven 3 times so far over there to eat. Best hamburger, chicken fried steak and BLT! Quaint and colorful. Menu has lots of selections and it all looks good. Been around for quiet some time. People are friendly and atmosphere is pleasant to say the least. Lots of beautiful hills and colorful trees on the drive. Love this place.

My husband had the lamb sliders and onion rings. I had the cheese burger and sweet potato fries. Our sweet waitress mentioned that the "onion rings" we're her favorite. Oh, how I wished I'd asked for them. Sweet potato fries were great - but...those onion rings! Very lightly breaded and perfectly seasoned! We talked about them several times that afternoon!... More

We stayed in Utopia, TX a couple days while hiking the nearby State parks. The Lost Maples Cafe is pretty much the only place in town for dinner but was fine by us. It is great to find a small town cafe that prepares everything fresh. The menu is the standard cafe fare; burgers, sandwiches, Mexican food and a few... More

Excellent Chicken Fried Steak! Excellent Texas Toast (usually this stuff is pretty bad, but theirs is done just right). Cream gravy ok. Sadly, the french fries were not so good, so I gave up on them and just enjoyed the CFS. A piece of chocolate pie was a good dessert. Nice place to stop after hiking in Lost Maples!

After driving for miles fantasizing about the memory of the chicken fried steak I was not disappointed. A flavorful batter fried to perfection with a juicy, flavorful cube steak inside, what could be better? Adding the beautifully done cream gravy! This entree comes with a fresh green salad, your choice of a side (onion rings for me; baked potato for... More

Incredible home style meals with awesome handmade pies for desert. Decorated in a cute rustic country style.

Treated myself to a slice each of fudge pecan pie and coconut meringue pie (shared with a friend!). The pies were amazing. The food was just so-so. Lunch of meatloaf, mashed potatos, green beans and banana bread was good. Had breakfast a couple of days later, and that was not so good. Eggs were rubbery; biscuits touted as amazing were... More
