Quaint Place, Great Chow, Nice Folks

The dining room sometimes closes for one reason or another. Also, sometimes it's one price, and others it's cafeteria style. If you go with kids, this can quickly run into some $$, because everything, especially the desserts, looks so tempting. Also, for a real treat, check out the eye candy next... read more

If you go with kids, this can quickly run into some $$, because everything, especially the desserts, looks so tempting. Also, for a real treat, check out the eye candy next door when the weather warms up. Whatta beefcake!!!

This place is amazing. Some of the most legit southern food you can put in your mouth. Don't miss out on this gem. We were driving past opelika Alabama back to our home in Florida and we remembered about this place from my wife's college days in auburn. So this was our first time back since 2005. It is just...

As a college student, I don't get home cooking very much, but Whispering Oaks always makes me feel like I'm home. It... More
