“Fun Atmosphere, Delicious Food!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Ethnically diverse clientele and everyone has a great time. Food is great, except for the sausage which is spectacular. Good veggies. Friendly service. Generous portions. Highly recommend.

“Highly recommended - worth a trip”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

If you fancy southern food, then this place is worth the trip. Friendly service, and a good menu. It's a shame the fried chicken is only available from the truck opposite. We came here twice. The first time, I had chicken fried steak. I'd never eaten it before, and won't be again! But from the sides, and what we had on our return trip, it was clear that CFS is clearly just not for me. Very good portions, and tasty.

Second visit to this restaurant this year. I'm from San Antonio but have family in Austin. Nice surroundings, good food, good portions, quick & efficient service! Chocolate bread puffing excellent! Meat loaf delicious! Good margaritas!

“Fabulous food and wonderful, friendly service”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

This was restaurant was recommended to me as one to visit while we were in Austin. I am so glad that we went. I had the chicken fried steak, potato salad, fried okra, and black-eyed peas as well as a piece of the buttermilk pie while my husband had the fried catfish. The food was wonderful and the portions were enormous, enough to take back to the hotel for later. This restaurant is definitely one you want to put on your list of must eat at... Definitely recommend!!!
