“GRANNY'S KITCHEN LIVES UP TO WHAT YOU'RE PICTURING ABOUT IT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2011

Granny's Kitchen is a quaint little restaurant you'll pass on your right as you're headed south from Americus, GA, toward Albany, GA, on highway 19. And there really is a "Granny." She is a lovely older lady whose perfectly coifed hair sits on the back of her head in a large bun...always. But it's brown, not white or gray as you're imagining. She and her crew of cooks and waitresss serve up delectable country cooking every day except Sunday, when Granny and her husband attend church. She is open only for breakfast and lunch, but if you were to have both meals there, you might opt out of supper! Her breakfasts are just what you'd expect down here in the South...eggs however you like them, grits, biscuits or toast, bacon, sausage. Then there's lunch! Her menu changes daily, and she places on each table a neatly typed and printed menu with her list of meats...like barbeque, meat loaf, roast beef, chicken, and more; vegetables...like field peas, turnip greens, green beans, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, and more; desserts...like lemon pie, egg custard pie, Snickers pie, cakes, banana pudding, and more. AND her lovely lace cornbread, a thin pancake-looking thing that is really a fried cornbread. Greasy, but delicious. She also has a wonderful chicken salad or tuna salad plate with fruit. I have eaten that several times and it is luscious. If you like country cooking, Granny's is the place for you. And as you check out, you will want to purchase...or at least look at...the small pen and ink or pencil drawings in a box by the cash register for sale by local artist Lois Theiss (pronunced TICE.) Granny's Kitchen will be a charming stop for you as you head for points south of Americus, GA.
