“Not the best meat and 3”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

My friends seem to like this place but I never choose to go here when I think of great Southern food. I question how much is home made. I have had dessert served cold (chocolate pie needs to be served at room temp in my opinion) and it was just not good at all even imagining it warm. I don't like the turkey dressing, I don't like the gravy. I guess I am just too pickey. I grew up with my grandmother't and mother't great homemade food and this place is no where near par. If you want true Southern food, go to Cal's down the road in Madison.

“Ruby's meat and three, plus desserts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

I have been going here for years. Ruby changed locations, but she did not change food quality. This restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch only. They serve the usual meat and three, along with sandwiches and nice pies and cobblers. The waitresses are friendly, and the atmosphere is welcoming. Lot of regular customers. Comfort food!

“Okay food, great price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

Classic meat-and-3, local restaurant. Great place to grab lunch on a budget. After ordering, your food comes out in about 30 seconds. Make sure not to eat late in the afternoon, as the food won't be any good.

“Great Neighborhood Cafe.”

Small family styled restaurant. Service is prompt and friendly. Food specials change daily and are very good. Breakfast and lunch daily.
