This is a simple, hometown cafe with a very friendly staff, fun surrounding and great food. I had the Chicken Fried Steak with mashed potatoes and a side salad for an extra $1.00. My husband had the Cheezy smoked chicken breast with green beans and cole slaw. Our order was taken quickly and the salad and rolls were served before... More

We stop at this cafe several times a year it is located across the street from our motel. Food is great and so is the service. The food is home cooked and the menu is large and offers a big variety.

This is a standard home cooking cafe with chicken fried steak, fried chicken, fried catfish, meatloaf, etc... I had the chicken fried chicken, which was tasty but a little on the dry side.

Nothing fancy, but good food, fast service, and a full bar. Prices are also very reasonable. Definitely worth trying while you're in Liberal.

Chicken fried steak and gravy and patty melts...none better. Rib eye was questionable, however, Bro Richard thought it was might fine. Salads were cold and crisp. French Fries were hot and crisp. A tad salty, but all in all a fine dining night after a 12 hour road trip.
