After a disappointing lunch at "Fox's Market House" a while back we were looking for a place where even first time customers would receive a warm welcome. We picked "The Texas" because we figured that after nearly 100 years they should know how to do things right. And they did! The service was quick and friendly, the prices were reasonable,... More

I have heard of this place and wanted to stop here for years. I finally got the chance as I was running ahead of schedule so I got off the Lock Haven I80 exit. I found a parking space near by and walked in about 11:30 on a Saturday morning. I stress the time as they were making the switch... More

On a business trip to Lock Haven, not sure what else is nearby, I found a friendly town with nice people and some good places to eat. Texas was on my list of places to eat because it looks like a diner lost in time. Food was good. I had the Texas hot dogs with gravy fries. All at a... More

The waitress was very rude from the moment we arrived and extremely unprofessional after we informed her we were leaving because of her behavior. She blocked us in our booths until she was sternly asked to remove herself from the aisle. She asked us what she was supposed to do with the food, which we felt was very unprofessional after...

This hole-in-the-wall storefront diner is THE place to visit and eat when in Lock Haven, PA. It has fantastic breakfasts all day long. It's very laid back, but if you want to be treated well and eat good food--visit The Texas.

I often will call and order take out from the texas because It's so popular it's sometimes hard to get a table. When you do get the privilege to eat in there the experience is well worth it. Seeing the autographed jerseys from yankees greats and nfl memorabilia from local nfl star Robbie Gould is unlike any other place in... More
