Away from the hustle of the beach and pier, Galveston has a little gem in Star Drug Store. While not really a drug store anymore the walls are lined with items for sale in cases at a rather cheap price. However the "Star of the Show" here is the food. We arrived in the lunch rush and it was packed, but only took about 6 minutes to be seated for 5 of us. We enjoyed their diner style food and all day breakfast.

The man working the counter was friendly and carried on a conversation with each of his guests when paying their bill. We averaged less than $9 a person.

We had a great breakfast sitting at the counter like we did a long. long time ago! Milkshakes in the tin cups with the mixers behind the counter, over easy eggs with crispy bacon and has browns and candy at the check out like we used to get as kids! Great memories and wonderful time!

We slid in right before they stopped taking orders for the day, but they were super nice and accommodating. The food was good and service was speedy. Would definitely visit again.

An historic former drug store with a large diner counter complete with that classic green striped white china, chrome stools and a 30s or 40s feel. Friendly staff with a perfect southern gentleman running the cash...and breakfast was good too.

I had bacon and eggs,,reasonably priced but as tasteless as could be,, only the eggs were ok,, toast burned on one side,,bacon thin and limp,,(I had asked for crisp bacon), it all tasted like it had been cooked in lard,,was just terrible..a big disappointment and the waitresses seemed to have "no clue" what they were doing..
