“Smothered pork chops are to die for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Go hungry. I got the smothered pork chops and there was enough there for two meals . . . and I'm not a small guy. The array of vegetables to select from is huge and they are all down home southern cooking so they are yummy. But bring your defibrillator if you're bringing granddad.

“Homestyle Southern Cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Yummy Chicken Fried Chicken. The mates (side dishes) were wonderful and plentiful, but the sweet Potato Biscuits were the best part of this visit. Many homemade pies where available if you had room after eating that wonderful meal.

“Tasty Home Cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

I have eaten here a million times. I have never had anything bad. Chicken fried chicken, sausage, ribs, and caesar salad awesome. Mac and cheese, black eyed peas, mustard greens, fries, etc., really good. Desserts tasty. Service good. Crazy busy at lunch.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

A most excelelnt excursion to the close north end of Austin will find you Hoover's. ahh, wonderful delectable variety of offerings, scratch cooking, you wont be disspointed in what you desire. a little heat in some of the dishes, try the Jalapeno Creamed Spinch.

“Just Like Mama Made It.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

This place is great. Good food and great service. The atmosphere only scored low because it was under renovation. Other than that I had a perfect experience. The normal blackboard with specials was moved so instead they made a picture of a blackboard and used that at each table. You must have food from here!
