My wife and I plus another couple met at Betty Jo's for lunch so we could discuss our upcoming vacation together scheduled for later in the month. We chose Sylvester since it is about the same distant from home for both of us. I was a little timid concerning a good restaurant in the small town of Sylvester but my fears were quickly allayed when we step into this smart boutique restaurant in southwest Georgia.
The furnishings for the restaurant were tastefully appointed and we found our friends seated at a nice table. The waitress gave us all menus, explained the daily specials and took our drink orders. The service people were attentive but not bothersome. The lunch menu was not lengthy which usually leads me to believe that the entrees would all be good.
My wife and my friend each had a blue plate special .... one with a hamburger steak and the other fried chicken, both with two vegetable sides. My friends wife and I chose the the hamburger with homemade onion rings. All of our meals were cooked correctly and not overdone. The meat was juicy and the vegetables soft but not limp. The onion ring batter was crisp and not heavy. One more thing ..... the blue plate specials actually come out on a blue plate.
Finding the place is not hard since it is on the main drag (route 82) through town at a corner with a stop light. Parking is available off of the main street or on the cross street. However, as this place becomes more popular, parking may become more of an issue.
We will certainly return again and maybe for dinner next time.
