The dining room is small. There are a good deal of challenging surfaces, o it’s kind of tricky to hear. But the workers associates are pleasant and the menu fulfills the demands of a stable meat-and-3 diner.
Menu: The verdict
Let me preface this assessment by saying that I am a bonafide Southern girl whose father procured a big yard and my mom household-cooked every little thing he grew. My culinary tastes with regards to Southern fare have been formed by these points.
My lunch partner — whose mother did not cook an array of Southern foods — was a 17-calendar year-aged whose palate is constrained to comfort and ease foods like burgers, fried rooster, pizza and wings. (He is a wing and fried rooster snob, too.)
His purchase was fried rooster (breast and wing), macaroni and cheese and inexperienced beans. He loved his food so significantly that he went again and obtained a next assisting of the hen and mac. He also marveled about the sweet cornbread.
I managed to sneak some bites of the fried hen, and it really is superb: crispy with a minimal kick, and the hen meat was tremendous juicy. My spouse and I had the fish prior to, too, and it truly is equally contemporary and flavorful — emphasis on clean.
I wasn’t a lover of the environmentally friendly beans, though, mainly because I am extra of a Blue Lake green bean gal (like my Daddy grew).
My plate featured seasoned cabbage, pinto beans, fried okra and meatloaf with a yeast roll. The fried okra is legit. I could have eaten 3 servings of it. The cabbage was flavored effectively, but softer than I like. The pintos had been fantastic, much too, but I only had relish. If you serve beans at my residence, you want legit chow-chow.
Now, on to the meatloaf. It was hearty and much better than my Mama’s. It can be also gluten-totally free, so that is a additionally, and Otis uses 90% lean ground beef. You can find no crimson sauce like you typically see on meatloaf. But Otis stated you can ask for it on the side.
The surprise of the day was banana pudding. It wasn’t like my Daddy’s, but it was extremely excellent. It’s received a very little excess flavoring in it that I cannot very set my finger on — not nutmeg, maybe rum flavoring. I’ll figure it out inevitably.
