We visited Schobel's on Thanksgiving day. Even though it was packed, the staff was fantastic! Our server was on the ball and friendly. We will definitely be back!

My family and I enjoyed eating their Thanksgiving buffet. There was a wide variety of food to choose from. We thoroughly enjoyed our delicious meal. Our waitress was so friendly, helpful and accommodating. Mother is 89 years old and needs help when it comes to carrying her food. Ruthie, I think her name was, voluntarily offered assistance and the lady... More

We stop here when traveling. Columbus Texas doesn't have many choices. Buffet not bad, not as good as Golden Coral. We had burgers, better than McDonald's but not as good as Sonic. Clean rest rooms, place clean. It's just a place to stop for a quick bite.

This was my first visit to Schobel's. As soon as you walk in the door you can see the large buffet. I ordered off the menu and had Pan Seared Catfish with fried okra, side salad, and sweet tea. The catfish (2 fillets) was delicious and cooked perfectly. The fried okra was very good and a large portion. The side... More

We have relatives in Katy, Texas about 50 miles east of Columbus, and stop at Schobels' every time we visit. Small town Diner/buffet. Always have great food, the buffet or the menu. We have never been disappointed with our meals. Service is fast and friendly.Highly recommend.

We were thrilled to find Schobel's. The service was fast and polite; the food freshly cooked and delicious. Additionally, the prices did not break the bank. The location is very close to I-10, there is plenty of parking, and a great selection. We had the schnitzel, a wonderful surprise, with good German potatoes and fresh vegetables; there was no room...

We have eaten here several mornings after waking. The waitresses are friendly and efficient. And the food is great. Eggs Benedict was good but my friend said next time she would ask for the sauce on the side because she wasn't accustomed to that quantity. I have tried the Usual which is two eggs, bacon or sausage, hash browns or... More
