Dallas Observer's Description

Norma's is a little Oak Cliff diner where the popular biscuits and gravy and chicken-fried steak are on par with the friendly, veteran servers. This joint is replete in typical greasy-spoon trappings: counter service, vinyl booths, regulars on a first-name basis and a bountiful menu. If you're all by your lonesome on Thanksgiving, stop by for a free dinner with all the trimmings. Just don't arrive at this Norma's location thinking it has the smoking section the Belt Line outpost does. It's Dallas, not Addison.

    Great classic REAL 50's style diner. Great food and what I would consider a homey atmosphere.

    Dallas Observer chose this as Best-Home-Style Restaurant for Best of Dallas 2010! Nothing like grandma's cookin'

    The owner, Ed Murph, actually helped create Texas' Chicken-Fried Steak Day if that says something about how serious they take their chicken-fried steak.

    Ask for Pat. She's lot's of fun. Norma's on Davis in North Oak Cliff has some of the best home southern cooking around. Great breakfast and catfish!

  • Matthew M. on 09/08/12

    Leave a big tip - they deserve it

  • Shelly on 11/04/13

    The chicken fried steak grilled cheese sandwich is amazing! Norma's also has the best tater tots in the history of tater tots.
