I'll see you at the Turkey and Dressing place...

...which is Cleburnes, of course. The best Turkey and (cornbread) Dressing in Houston, bar none, year round!!!! And the cranberry sauce is made on the premises with whole cranberries.
Look at that Turkey and Dressing. Yes!!!!
Grab a tray and take a walk down the line with me.

They do have other things, which are very good and well prepared, but I got the Turkey and Dressing call and just had to have it!!

I got a call from friend Barb, all she said was Turkey and Dressing at 1. I'll be there, I said. Then I remembered I had said no car today, so I allowed a little more time and road my bike. That made eating the Turkey and Dressing even more enjoyable, knowing I would be burning off five or six of the 10,000 calories I was about to imbibe, so I threw some chocolate cream pie on my tray for good measure. It was hard to pick from the homemade pies, puddings and cakes that Cleburnes make, but I managed,  Oh my!!!
These cakes are made fresh with whole ingredients and could easier feed a village.

They have lovely salads, too. One of my favorites is the Greek Salad. Ooppaaa!!!

Cleburne's Cafeteria
Established in 1941
3606 Bissonnet
Houston, TX 77005
Some facts, Cleburne's was written up in the New York Times food section. They said some dandy things about this cafeteria. All the painting on the wall were painted by the original owner Nick Miekelis. They are closed Saturdays, but open the other six days of the week.


  1. Watching the red carpet now fixin to partake of leftover lemon cake! Just watched Ryan Seacrest get ashed by the dictator! What could be more fun than eating Cleburnes and must see TV? Great combo! Thanks for meeting me!

  2. I love Cleburns, but haven't been there in years.

  3. I know, you kind of forget about it, because they never advertise, at least I haven't seen or heard of any.
