Blue Star Cafeteria

4800 Burnet Rd.
Ste. C300
Austin, TX, 78756, United States
TEL: (512) 454-7827

This updated version of the traditional diner concept is not, in fact, a cafeteria at all but a sit-down restaurant popular for its take on traditional meat-and-three Americana. High ceilings and polished concrete floors help absorb much of the chatter in the bustling dining room, where the contemporary-yet-kitschy decor incorporates suspended white lampshades, pink walls, and retro white lawn chairs. The brunch menu features staples like eggs Benedict and vanilla-battered French toast served with fresh pecans and Vermont maple syrup, and though Blue Star doesn't serve liquor, patrons are invited to bring their own "hooch" to try with the restaurant's spicy homemade Bloody Mary mix.

Insider Tip:

Blue Star's standout burger—made with a half-pound of angus—is a catch at $6 every Tuesday.
