“Adequate-Nothing Special”

Something Different by Kay
Ranked #1 of 4 Restaurants in Silverton
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

There are not a lot of options for food if you are heading to or from Caprock Canyons State Park, so I decided to stop here even though no one has written a review yet in 2018. It is right on the hwy so easy to find. Although there are steps to enter there is also a ramp. Once inside, the restaurant is clean but nothing inviting about the decor. The menu was surisingly extensive including many Mexican options. I ordered the daily special for $9.99-lemon pepper chicken, corn, baked beans, hashbrown casserole, Texas toast, coffee or tea, and a small piece of frosted chocolate cake for dessert. Lots of food and generous portions but my food was average at best. The chicken looked like a packed frozen boneless breast with a few seasonings added. The corn and beans looked and tasted like they came right out of a can. The casserole was probably the best part. Waitress was very nice. I was the only guest at the time but did not feel overly welcome.

Clean little spot as you drive through Silverton.
Gravel parking lot, stairs into restaurant.
Breakfast served until 11.

Good selection, friendly folks.

Others have noted the smoke - the restaurant is a split into two sections. Smoking & nom-smoking. We don't smoke, but the non-smoking side was fairly smoke-free. Only occasionally a whiff may drift by. Not really a problem.

We had Navajo tacos. Yummy! Sour cream would have been good to have - ask for some!
All in all, a nice stop.

Small town cafe with fairly comprehensive menu. Simple, no frills, but competent, friendly service. Popular with the locals. We had good quesadillas, onion rings and tea. Ended up buying a variety of their homemade fried pies. This cafe gets the grease temperature just right.

A couple of us were on our Harleys last weekend and went through the little country town of Silverton, Texas right about lunch time. We saw this quaint little eatery with a catchy name, "Something Different by Kay". So what the heck - bet cha they have a chicken friend steak - and indeed they did! The decor is really small town, very quaint but functional. The food was delicious - met the cook and she was a delightful lady that just really loves to cook! The waitress was a hometown girl and just as sweet as she could be. This is not a big town restaurant but really just a hometown jewel. If you find yourself in that neck of the woods (actually there are now woods there - rolling plains) stop in have a really good meal!

We stopped in to try breakfast and lunch on separate days. Good old-fashioned cafe with a good menu. Everything was hand-made. Good burgers and equally good breakfast. Highly recommend to anyone staying in Silverton.
