The place was full but sitting was quick. Staff was very nice. Our waitress was very attentive. As for the food all I can say is that we are going to try to make it again before we leave! It was great. NO complaints.

Everyday there is a special. We ate this week on Thursday which was beef tips and rice. Encluded 2 sides, a drink and bread for one low price. Best deal in town, and food was great!

Nothing special here except the down home atmosphere, wait staff that really tries hard, and comfort food that tastes as good as it would at home. Where else can you find beets and cabbage as a side? Love this place and we go quite often. Thought I would give it a shout out.

A very family friendly place, there are lots of choices for kids, too. The food and service are both very good, the staff friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is nice and bright. You can... More

I love Tex & Shirley's at Friendly Center. The staff from the minute you are greeted at the entrance until you walk out with a full stomach are outstanding. The food is great and the coffee is the best!

Stopped for breakfast on a roadtrip down south and was VERY pleasantly surprised but how massive the menu was. There are like 14 types of pancakes, as well as LOTs of yummy southern style dishes. The server was extremely friendly and helpful with us deciding what to get. Very downhome country feel and very well seasoned and portion sizes were... More

My husband and I have gone on a Saturday morning to Tex and Shirley's a few times. They have good pancakes and french toast. The omelets are almost whipped egg, so if you aren't used to that, it can be a little strange. It gets pretty crowded and loud if you are there during peak times, and the chairs aren't... More
