Norma's Cafe Celebrates 56th Anniversary with $1.79 Specials

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.
