    Enjoy authentic made-from-scratch Southern fare and then walk down two blocks to the famous Fox Theatre.

    The potlikker — salty, oily and cloudy with mysteries of flavor, with a stray collard leaf floating within — comes alongside a miniature cracklin’ corn muffin. Read more

    1st time visitors get a comp pot likker. Mac + Cheese, tomatoe pie and the chicken and dumplings are a MUST! Come hungry bc they don't skimp on the portions.

    The chicken is some of the best southern-fried chicken I've ever had!

    Save room for the banana pudding.

    Mary Mac’s is known for such Dixie classics as Brunswick stew, pot likker with a cornbread muffin, and chicken with dressing. Macaroni and cheese is not to be missed.

    Disagree with previous tip from others - the sweet potato soufflé is great. Order it as one of you sides instead of getting a dessert.

    Note to first time visitors: be sure to ask for a complimentary pot likker! Don't know exactly what that is? You'll just have to wait and find out!

    Lots of history here; however, the food can be hit or miss sometimes. Our waiter John was great though! He handled our group of 25 like a champ!

    Avoid the sweet potato soufflé, it's got way too much nutmeg. Apparantly the peach cobbler also is over-spiced.

    Mathilde Piard · March 28, 2010

    Ribs and Chicken fried Chicken. Of course, a must is their Georgia Peach Cobbler!

    I love the fried chicken. I almost always get it when I come here. Sundays are usually a little crowded so be prepared.

    If you're a vegetarian/pescatarian, in addition to the vegetable platter, their fish options are pretty varied and tasty. The blackened tilapia was as good as it gets, especially with some hot sauce!

    Had really high expectations from the hype, but honestly I don't think I'd go back. The fried okra and green tomatoes were delicious, as well as the cinnamon rolls but everything else was just okay

    Wine sauce for the bread pudding is a little strong but the Mac n' Cheese was delicious and the greens were to die for!! Roast pork was very tender minus a few cart shards....get you an Arnold Palmer!
