    Fried green tomatoes are the best I've ever had. The broccoli soufflé was better than expected - a must if you like broccoli.

    First timers get your free potlikker and corn bread! Portions were massive here and extremely buttery. The wait staff was very nice. Get an assorted bread basket!

    I'm sure it's because we had a big party, but the fried chix, green beans, grits and stuffing were all just OK. Didn't try the fried green tomatoes because they never made it to the table. Too bad.

    Lots of dining rooms makes this feel like people kept coming for the traditional southern food, so the restaurant kept adding rooms. When you go to the restroom, remember what room you came from.

    A bona fide Atlanta institution. The framed, autographed photos that run up and down nearly every wall attest to that. Johnny Mercer, James Brown, Jimmy Carter and Jesse Ventura, have all eaten here. Read more
