DALLAS – The Highland Park Cafeteria opened 95 years ago in 1925 on Knox Street in the foothills of Highland Park, a highly affluent town in central Dallas County, Texas.
The restaurant had eight locations throughout Dallas, but after experiencing hard times in 1996, they had to downside. Only the Casa Linda location in East Dallas survived and was called the ‘Casa Linda Cafeteria.’
In 2007, a new owner, changed the name back to the original name, ‘Highland Park Cafeteria.’ They continued to serve classics like; meatloaf with mashed potatoes, squash casserole, ambrosia salad, glossy rolls, and delicious zucchini muffins.
The Highland Park Cafeteria announced the sad news on Monday, May 11, that it will remain closed after the temporary closure due to the COVID-19 crisis.
