“Outing for work”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We went to Thelma's as an outing from work as a sort of team building. The people and service were nice. The server tried to interact with the people at the table. Food was good - I ordered fried chicken though and they didn't have any. You would think the name of the restaurant would make that a definate choice but it was going to be an hour before it was ready. we only had 1.5 hours away for the team event so i had to choose another item. The food that I did get was good though.

“Chicken and Waffles - a great idea!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

We hit the downtown market early the morning of 12/28 and asked a vendor who was setting up his market wares where we could have a good breakfast and he promptly replied, "Thelma's". He did not steer us wrong. We were greeted warmly and immediately seated at a good-sized table for four. TuTu was our waitress and she was happy, helpful and friendly. All of our breakfast choices were delicious and we thought the idea of chicken with waffles (and syrup, of course) was unique and decadent. It's in a great location, friendly staff and wonderful food. What more could anyone want?

Staff was very friendly and food was delush, though Hubby thought his food was just okay. Chicken and waffle tasted great. Thoughty leg and thigh was flavored wonderfully. Will visit again.

“Chicken and Waffles? Awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

I wanted a local resteraunt for breakfast. My wife flipped through the phone book and saw Thelma's... Her parents loved the place. We gave it a try, and we were not disappointed. I had to try the chicken and waffles. The chicken was perfectly cooked. Tender and moist! Waitress was very pleasant, and she made sure our coffee cup stayed full. A very enjoyable breakfast.

“Good Food and Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

The staff at Thelma's is very friendly and attentive. My wife and I got the chicken and waffles with fried potatoes. The price for the meal is very affordable and the food is delicious. We are looking forward to going back there.
