Loved it! Perfect place for me!

This is exactly the kind of local place I look for on any trip! Small, downtown location, back behind the main strip through Monroe, with nice friendly people, good service and really good food. While I wasn't up for it today, I will be back and plan to try "The Dawg Pile" for breakfast. Check... read more

Southern breakfast for sure! Hot links, homemade ground sausage, fluffy biscuits. What more could you ask for? Would every week if my waist could afford it!

The food here is delicious! I especially like the chicken and dumplings and the chicken pot pie! In addition to the delicious food, the service is always impeccable! They really make you feel like family.

Great neighborhood cafe, in a small strip center. Mostly locals having breakfast and meeting for coffee. Great biscuits and gravy and the patty sausage cant be beat.

Pot Luck has great food with great lunch specials 5 days a week. One meat, 3 sides and a drink at a good price can't be beat. Don't miss "fried chicken Friday" where you get fried or baked chicken with potato salad, slaw and baked beans all served with cornbread or roll.

If you are a calorie-counter, this isn't the place for you. Down home cooking, cornbread, biscuits, and lots of gravy. The turkey on Wednesdays is not to be missed.

Pot Luck is a favorite to the locals, and for good reason. They are friendly folks serving up some of the best comfort food in town. I grew up in Monroe and have since moved away, but make a stop at Pot Luck any time I come to town. Their breakfast is the best!

There is a ROUND TABLE where the locals congregate for coffee and tall tales. Their breakfast is hard to beat with the best sausage around as well as the toasted biscuits. Good place for lunch also. I have been eating there for around 30 years and it is as good now as it was 30 years ago. The waitresses are... More
