I’ll be going back to Blue Star Cafeteria
With my parents in town, I thought I would take them somewhere new to eat. With all the times they took me to Luby’s growing up, the term “cafeteria” is never far from my mind when I associate my parents and going out to eat. So I thought Blue Star Cafeteria might satisfy us all. I was right.
Blue Star is the new restaurant on Burnett by Eddie Bernal. My wife really likes his 34th Street Cafe, but I’m not crazy about his take on tex-mex at Santa Rita. Blue Star hit all the right notes for us. My parents loved the meat loaf, saying the brown gravy was the best they have ever had. That’s saying a lot since brown gravy is a staple of their Southeast Texas fixins. My spinach lasagne was big and tasty. My wife had a vegatable bowl she thought was excellent. We shared an appetizer of fried artichoke, that everybody liked, including my 16 month old. I heard one couple next to us commenting on how good the food was as well.
I thought the pricing was reasonable. Our bill came to just over sixty bucks for 4 people, including two classes of wine and a beer. Most of the entrees were $9.95 or so.
I think my parents have forgotten all about the macaroni and cheese and square fish patties at Luby’s after last night.
