I’ve lived in Thomasville for three years. I have been here 4 times. I go for the chicken gizzards and onions smothered in gravy. I know why you’re thinking but they are delicious. Roast Pork, meatloaf, fried fish all good. Fried okra, greens, peach cobbler....More

Great variety of southern staples, though missed cornbread, and everyhting was cooked perfectly. Only thing disappointing was the fried chicken, but it was minor compared to the other dishes, including the 1st time I've ever had teriyaki gizzards - excellent!

If it's great country cooking you want, then this is the place. The Market Diner serves the best cabbage, turnips, collards, and mustard greens ever. They also have great butter beans and peas; plus sometimes white acre peas when they are in season. Their meats...More

Fresh Veggies from across the street at the Farmer's Market. Southern Comfort Food to die for. Not the fanciest dining experience but the food was mouth watering good.

You know, I hate to say I'm not sure, but I can give you a range. Price depends on if it's lunch or dinner. Dinner is higher. Sunday lunch is about the price of dinner. On Friday and Saturday, I think, there is seafood... More
