Quintessential Meat and 3 Restaurant

I have never been disappointed with anything at Doug's! My favorite is the fried okra! We drive from Dallas Ga to eat here and it's worth it!

Southern home cooking in what appears to be an old general store. Exit 283 on I-75; turn off on road 293 in Emerson. We went for a late Sunday lunch and the place was mobbed! Good quick service in spite of the crowd. Wide variety from roast pork to fried chicken - and even chicken livers! About a dozen meats... More

Love Doug's place. This is a country cooking kind of place, and they do it up right. This is a full service restaurant, in an old building in downtown Emerson, just west of I-75. You will love it if you love good country cooking. Unique ordering system (see if you can figure it out the first time you go), and... More

Great service, friendly and fast---that just sets the tone for good home cooking. I can recommend the corn, okra and the pinto beans---just like home. A wonderful throw-back to a good small town dining experience.

I went with some friends on Sept 20, 14 to Doug's Place. The atmosphere is very nostalgic of years gone by in what appeared to be an old general grocery store. From the near lack of seating, Doug's is a very popular place. There is a reason why: the grub. One friend got breakfast and two of us ordered lunch.... More

Stopped in nearby Cartersville to inquire about a good home cooking restaurant and Doug's Place came highly recommended. Drove the 5 miles South and easy to find and very crowded. Seated immediately and service was great. Ordered fried chicken livers, black eyed peas, fried mushrooms and corn bread. Wife had catfish fillets, collard greens and pinto beans. Both meats were...
