Norma’s celebrates 57th birthday with 1950s prices
Just go ahead and give us a glass of gravy.
OAK CLIFF You ought to know by now: Norma's Cafe is Dallas' favorite grandma. She puts sumptuous food in your belly. She's nice to you even when you're cranky. And, she always has freebies in her purse.
The original Norma's in Oak Cliff turns 57 this year, and on June 25, dine-in guests can choose one of three classic comfort meals for a throwback price: $1.79.
Starting at 10:30 a.m., customers may choose the Texas-style chicken fried steak, meatloaf, or chicken and dressing entree for the reduced price while supplies last. That price includes mashed potatoes and gravy, a buttered roll, and green beans. The deal is also available at Norma's two younger locations off the Tollway and in Frisco -- the latter of which just opened.
PR account executive at HCK2 Partners, Christy French, said the $1.79 price reflects "roughly the cost of what a customer would have paid back in the 1950s-1960s."
On June 22, Norma's hosts its regular classic car show. Car club The Late Great Chevys will be on-site at the North Dallas location from 6 to 9 p.m. celebrating with special emphasis on -- you guessed it -- the famous '57 model.
