World's best Chicken Fried steak.. Maybe a stretch for "world's Best" but pretty darn good and tasty. My wife had pot roast which was very good. Had a slice of buttermilk pie which tasted more llke cold bread pudding . Soft drinks and beer come in cans.
Would go back for the CFS.

We stopped here for breakfast while visiting the LBJ Ranch. Breakfast was very good and lots of food. Its an older establishment and the service was so so but I would stop back again. I enjoy the older small town cafe feel.

Hill Country Cupboard is one of oldest diners in town and holds true to the small town cafe feel. Family owned and family ran. Come by and visit us again soon.

Any restaurant advertising the "World's Best Chicken Fried Steak" offers a challenge for two native Texans. Of course we had to stop. I ordered the regular (not the large) chicken fried steak, and it was huge. It may not have been the world's BEST, but it would be in the running. My husband ordered the chicken fried pork chops, and he loved them. Gravy was served with both entrees, and it tasted homemade. There was a choice of sides to include fried okra, beans, mashed potatoes, and other home-style choices. We were too full to try desserts, but the ones we saw looked good.

Thank T. P

Thank you for nice review. We hand batter all our steaks per order to make sure they are tender & crispy at the same time. Come back and try our desserts. The peach cobbler is very peachy and delicious. Don't forget we serve breakfast all day. Thank you again for choosing us & come back again.

Their chicken fry was really very good. I liked that we could order a whole blackberry cobbler and come back later to pick it up. Everything was very good.

I did try their chicken-fried steak and it was fine. Nothing over the top but good. Service is friendly. Food does not come out fast on a week night. I think they only have one cook. Just don't be in a hurry. I would assume that the pies are good here.
