“Good Service, Good Meat & Three”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Meat & 3 type place; I have always been here for lunch. It is in the shopping center near Kroger, and there is generally parking not far away. They have really good service, and a cafeteria-type meal line, where you can choose your salad/meat/vegs and dessert. I like this place.

“Good Southern Cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

Lunch and dinner seven days a week done southern style. This place has been in business a long time at numerous locations and they have figured things out. Service is cafeteria style and you just select what appeals to you. I do not think you could go wrong with whatever you chose. Save room for some of the fabulous desserts.

“Everything tastes like it came from a can!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012

This could be the best meat and three in Brentwood. The parking is good, the wait staff terrific, nice owners, and a good atmosphere. Please do some real cooking. I have eaten there three times. Each and every time the meat is held to long on the line and it is very dry. The bread has always been stale. Nothing stands out on the menu and most items Cooke from a can. The gravy is ok. The fried chicken is decent. City Cafe needs to step it up. Use seasoning and do some real cooking. Do the basics great and City Cafe could be a "Food Network Star".

“good meat and three”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

we arrived to visit family and wanted an close but good meat and three for dinner. the food was very good, several of us had meatloaf and one had baked chicken. the roasted potatoes and mashed potatoes delicious. the prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is casual. the deserts looked great, but we did not get any. the restaurant was pretty busy with alot of families coming in after a sports activity. the restaurant board lists all their food items they have but not all are available all the time. the prices are reasonable and the staff was frinedly. we will definately go back again.

“Excellent Meat & Three”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2011

During lunchtime, there is always a crowd at City Cafe. There is such a mixture of people - businessmen looking for a place to discuss the latest news, couples wanting some good home cooked food, and college aged kids looking for some food like mama's....My favorite is probably the meat loaf covered in tomato sauce but the turkey and dressing isn't far behind. The lima beans and mac n cheese are excellent also. The portions are generous and the staff as friendly as going to grandma's for Sunday lunch!
