Since 1956, Norma's Café has been serving hearty meals and Mile-High Cream Pies to Dallasites hankering for a little home-cooked goodness. This Thursday, June 21, they celebrate their 56th anniversary by offering three of their most popular meals for just $1.79, which was the original price for these dishes when they first opened over five decades ago.

The options include chicken-fried steak, meatloaf or chicken and dressing, all served with mashed potatoes and green beans.

Be sure to finish that off with pie.

The anniversary discount is only good at the Oak Cliff location at 1123 W. Davis St. One plate per diner, dine-in only, obviously.

This annual celebration is their busiest day of the year with lines typically snaking out the door. They'll start serving lunch around 10:30 a.m. and are open until 8 p.m.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
