I stopped at whistle stop cafe after reading excellent recommendations about the restaurant. Unfortunately my visit was not that way. We arrived around 3:00. The hostess was very abrupt but I didn't take it personally as it was very busy. It was a hot day...More

My husband and I shared a 1/2 order so we could taste the fried green tomatoes. They were not bad but I loved the homemade sauce that was served with it. I ordered grilled asparagus and put the homemade sauce on it. It was delicious....More

We stopped in, after driving a little out of our way, only because we are huge fans of the movie Fried Green Tomatoes. This little corner of the world beat all expectations. We arrived a little before they opened and walked through the little "town"...More

This is where the film "Fried Green Tomatoes" was made. The town is very small, but quaint. The BBQ is cooked over a pit outback, just like in the movie, over pecan wood, The BBQ was the BEST I have ever eaten! The sweet potatoe fries sticks were done to perfection. But the best thing was something that I had never had before, Pecan Dumpling. It has replaced Carnegie Deli cheesecake as my favorite dessert! If you like the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes" go to the Whisltle Stop Cafe and have some Fried Green Tomaoes, BBQ, sweet potatoe fires and pecan dumpling and remember a slower, quieter time and enjoy!
