Ross Old Austin Cafe

Ross' Old Austin Cafe Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato Once again I wanted some home cooking. Seems like I have been craving that lately, or is it just that what I have found is just not that good? Who knows.

Ross to the rescue! Ross’ Old Austin Cafe has been up on North Lamar for a long time, at least longer than most can remember. Their history is long, back from when Austin was tiny. Back to the 1940’s…but I forget the history.

Ross’ is home cooking, American, and dependable. They always have the standard fare, such as Chicken Fired Steak, Chopped Steak and Catfish. The sides are what you would expect, green beans, mashed and baked potatoes, fried okra, and a salad bar.

I always go with the Chopped Steak or the Chicken Fried Steak, as both are very good. You just can’t go wrong with either. The salad is always good, you fix your own right where you order, and don’t forget the Pickled Okra – which is real tasty.

I finish up by getting cantaloupe on my salad plate first and save that for last. The deserts are not really like Mom makes, and is why I usually stick to the cantaloupe.

Pardon the photo, I was hungry and forgot until I was almost done. I will try to include a photo on my posts from here on out.
