The area looks a little sketchy but the food is really good. Desserts are tasty, too, but I usually fill up on the food long before time for dessert!

We have to go to the Dallas VA medical center often, and we stopped here for lunch. Mile high meringue pie and chicken fried steak make for a delightful combination! We sat at the counter and watched the show--plates stacking up in the delivery window,...More

The restaurant was very busy, but the food, service and atmosphere was great! Our waiter was visiably rushed, but still very polite and professional. The food arrived quickly, and was hot and appetizing. I recommend this cafe when in Dallas.

Norma's Cafe is a Dallas home-cooking institution, founded in 1956. Norma's serves up hot, fresh and delicious savory home-styled meals, with a sinfully Southern flare, that are sure to make your mouth water. The original location has been operating in Oak Cliff for over 60 years. Now, Norma's has 4 other locations: Park Lane off of 75, North Dallas off of Trinity Mills, Frisco on Gaylord and the newest location is in Plano off W 15th and 75. Norma's Cafe is the rare type of restaurant that one can stop by for just a cup of our freshly brewed coffee or a full-on family meal and leave equally satisfied. With our fun-loving cafe atmosphere and iconic Texas photos and decor, Norma's Cafe is a place where you can have your pie and eat it too.
