Judy and I ate at Maxine's Cafe, a new restaurant in Elgin, a couple of weeks ago with Glenn and Barbara Ridings. It was our first visit to this relatively new restaurant but rest assured, it won't be the last.

Every one raved about their food both in terms of taste and the very generous servings. I had a fantastic chicken-fried steak, green beans and heavenly mashed potatoes and gravy. Outstanding!

Maxine's also features a full dessert case stocked with every variety of homemade pie you could ever want. Unfortunately, we were too full to try any of the pies but we'll definitely save room for dessert on our next visit which may be on a Sunday, when they serve breakfast all day.

Maxine's Cafe in Elgin is the second Maxine's Cafe. The original is still doing business in Bastrop. We've never been to that location but I can tell you that the Maxine's in Elgin is a winner. If you're looking for good, old-fashioned down-home food and fast, friendly service, check out Maxine's. Plus, the decor features a one-sheet from the made-in-Texas original TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE movie and a framed LP of GUNFIGHTER BALLADS by Marty Robbins. For more information, go to
