At Cleburne Cafeteria in West University, the world is your oyster (but you probably won’t find any actual oysters). Walk up to the counter, grab a tray, and select from a long line of glistening food that exemplify some of the best and tastiest dishes America has to offer: fruit salad, Jell-O, chicken fried steak, liver and onions, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, and gigantic slices of cake. At Cleburne, each item is sold a la carte, so order whatever your heart desires. There is something beautiful about selecting an array of your favorite comfort foods all at once, freeing even. Cafeteria restaurants stand as one of the great pillars of American cuisine. That’s what a cafeteria is: freedom.
