If you are looking for good southern comfort food look no further than Oakwood Cafe when in the Dalton area. They have a choice of meats and vegetables listed by day and the choices are just down right home cooking. I had chicken livers, creamed corn, mac and cheese, and green beans with cornbread and sweet tea for about $10.... More

My husband commented on how many chicken livers he got for dinner. I thought the meatloaf was very good.

I love this place! I love how you just choose your meat and then decide how many sides you want. I was there on a Wednesday and chose smoked chicken, baked sweet potato, and a salad made with cucumber,tomatoes,and onions. Very delicious. The girl who waited on me was absolutely fantastic.

It's in the historic part of town, about 1.5 miles away from interstate.......WELL WORTH the 5 minute drive.......it's where the locals dine. Pot roast was as fork~tender as mine, potatoes and green beans with... More

This restaurant is "old Dalton" - it was very active the closed for a few years, A young man from Dalton opened it and provided many locals with obs. The meat and vegetables do rotate - Tuesday is pinto beans, friend green tomatoes and squash casserole. Excellent food and a great value.

We were just driving through Daltons' downtown area and spotted this little restaurant on the corner. It seemed pretty crowded so we thought we would give it a try. You could tell once inside, it was a local favorite by the way everyone was talking to each other, asking about family and such. The pricing was very reasonable and the... More
