The best word to describe Star Drug Store is "Throwback". The restaurant is one big homage to Texan history, packed with collectables and memorabilia. Combined with a good meal, Star Drug Store is worth a pop in.

Had the pimento cheese sandwich on a croissant with potato salad. Both were stupendous and took me back many years. The place is wonderful and I highly recommend it. I bought several pieces of jewelry there also.
