Family owned

A great little family owned Resturant that serves meat and vegetable plates. Great friendly service and owners who take the time to say hello.

You will need to hurry in to get your last visit to this family owned Atlanta staple. After 70 years of serving great comfort food the owners are retiring. No date is announced yet but the end is in sight. Many of the regulars are going to have to learn to cook or find a new home cooking restaurant.

Evans has been serving home style southern food for maybe 60 years. Maybe more. I used to eat there with my parents, and discovered about 20 years ago that they moved around the corner. But the food is basically the same. Well-prepared, with a wait staff that's experienced and professional. Like chicken-fried steak? How about collards or turnip greens? Cornbread?... More

Nice little ma and pa diner with a very nice menu and special daily. Evans has been around a long time and the new owners have kept up the traditions the family started. Care needs to be taken to clean the ledge that is by the windows and booths. Very dusty!

Tried lunch again after being a little disappointed about a year ago. Ordered country fried steak with dressing and turnip greens. Wife ordered Tilapia. Service was prompt and friendly. Food was good but not as good as some other old school "meat and 3" places.

Disappointing in every way. Food which is supposed to be fresh is not. Most of it tastes like fresh out of a can. Service is good but can't make up for poor food. Many places have much better comfort food.

True comfort food when you need it! Have a craving for turkey and dressing they have it. Great pies for dessert and service is always good. They are doing the right thing to be in business as long as they have.

Had lunch couple years ago here and was disappointed but wanted to try breakfast. Even though it is old and badly needs updating, this is my kind of place. Old school and the kind of place that was common back when I was a child. Glad we stopped in. Waitress has worked here 41 years and was very good. Food... More

Over the years we have stopped in here for breakfast and dinner with family. Service has always been very good and quality food too. There are many regulars who dine here. It is comfort food and just nice and casual. It does need some updating of decor. Good value.
