Norma's Cafe

1123 W. Davis St. Dallas, TX 75208 | Oak Cliff & South Dallas | 214-946-4711

Location 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.
