The Twilight Saga beauty dined at the chain restaurant - which is famous for its busty waitresses - over the weekend and although she tried to keep a low profile, Kristen, 23, was happy to pose for pictures with employees and fans.

"She was trying not to be noticed, so she sat with her back to the restaurant. When she was eating, a guy asked her if she was Kristen Stewart. She said, 'Yes.' When the guy asked her if he could take a photo, she asked if she could take it after her meal. She was really nice, she smiled and said bye before she left," a source said.

Selena Gomez: I’d Have Two Kids by Now if I Stayed in Texas

Selena Gomez on 'Glamour'Singer-actress Selena Gomez has offered up what she believes her life would be like if she hadn't become a huge star and opened up about growing up with Disney.

In this month's issue of Glamour, the Spring Breakers actress claimed that she would have probably become a teen mom had she remained in Texas: "I'm terrified of what I would have become if I'd stayed there. I'm sure I'd have two children by now."

But that's not to say that she was exempt from the semblance of a high school experience:

"I grew up in one of the biggest high schools in the world, and that’s the Disney Channel. Everybody was falling in love with each other or not liking each other, and it was exhausting…and I was the shy one in the corner. And now I’m so opinionated, and I don’t have time for the cattiness. I have good people around me, and I’m glad I’m at the place I’m in. I wish I was there back then."

The Glamour issue hits newsstands on Tuesday, November 6.
