Minnie’s Uptown restaurant is absolutely delicious. The staff was very nice and friendly. The food was fresh and served HOT. Prices were very, very reasonable and the portion size was very filling. The restaurant is an absolute must if you’re in Columbus.

Southern Comfort food for the soul. It nourishes the body as only bacon and ham in a pot of greens can. They don’t just fry chicken here they tickle it with seasoning. It’s moist inside with a crisp crust. It’s packed brim full of flavor....More

I have always enjoyed my food and service at Minnie’s! Just prepare for horrible, congested parking & to wait in a long line if you go anytime after 11:30. I usually go at 11 and it’s a breeze.

Great fried chicken. The vegetables are always fresh and not over cooked. Our favorite vegetables are the turnip greens, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes and cabbage. Fresh brewed ice tea is very good.

While visiting Columbus, Ga, we went to an old cafe for some true Southern cooking, and we were not disappointed. We went through the cafeteria line picking the fried chicken, cheese grits, turnip greens, black eyed peas, and jalapeno cornbread. The crispy, delicious fried chicken...More
