Great classic cafeteria! Very hard to choose what to eat. Got the smothered pork chop with rice, collards and cabbage. All were cooked like grandma used to make. The staff was very friendly as well. Loved it!

We come here about once a month! ( Food is so good we can’t come more often! ) my husband can’t get past the fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and fresh cooked green beans! I’m always on the lookout for their chicken fried chicken with sawmill...gravy! If not that-the catfish either baked or stuffed! Love their food and their staff!!More

A very welcoming place.- everyone was nice and helpful. Understanding how to order- what you get with a meal- was unclear. Look it up before you go. But, the food was great, and with a large party everyone was able to find something they liked....It was just a great home cooked meal for the whole family.More

Excellent! Great Staff, Good Parking, Clean, excellent Decor, and food was great. Pleasant surprise in Tucker, a must go to when in the area. Nice selection of meat and veggies, large portion of proteins and average helping of veggies. Cafeteria style with great table service....Try it you will not be disappoint.More

This is a cafeteria style restaurant where they serve you on the line. I had turkey and dressing, squash, rolls and cornbread, mashed potatoes and coconut cream pie. Yum, yum!! Our waitress was very attentive and helpful and the food was DELICIOUS. I have no...criticism of this restaurant except that for the two of us, with a tip, we got out of there for $50.00. If you like southern type food and are in the Tucker area, give them a try.More

The Prices have Gone up too much! The food is good; however, it is outrageous now! I don't see how "Seniors" who would normally go there can no longer afford it.

Everything and fresh and they have the nicest staff. I always get the 4 side veggie plate because I love fresh veggies and can get collards AND turnip greens, cabbage that is cooked just right, not to hard, not to soft and then whatever fancies...me that day. The meatloaf is really good and it's hard to find. Fried chicken & fish are both good as well as they baked chicken & occasional turkey wings!. They both travel well as when we get a hankering for it we drive the 15 miles to get our fix. The prices are very reasonable.More

My co-worker raves about the place. So, I decided to stop by just as they were opening. I was unfamiliar with the process so, I just followed everyone else. I only wanted to try the chicken and the Mac and Cheese because that seems to...be the rave. Not only was the food not what I expected but I do believe that Matthew's cafeteria might have both better-fried chicken and Mac n Cheese. Although the very friendly man serving assured me that the food was outstanding and that I could not go wrong with any selection, it went wrong. The price was steep for just a very small serving (1 scoop) of mac n cheese, chicken, and a small drink. This was a failed experience for me.More

This restaurant used to be S & S Cafeteria on Chamblee Tucker Road. That was when it was good. They had tasty food at a reasonable price. Now it is disappointingly way over priced and not as tasty. No baked spaghetti either.More

My husband I just moved to the area and had heard of Magnolia. I have been eating catfish my entire life, and this was the BEST catfish I have ever had! My husband enjoyed his vegetable plate as well. The sugar free chocolate pie was...impressive. The line moved at little slow, but I am hoping that is unusual. We will go back and take our extended family with us!More

Have stopped getting takeout (or eating there) because they never have the things that we like that are on the menu (day after day.) Further, they won’t take phone orders and/or put you on hold & never come back. Sad since they used to be...one of the best cafeterias around. Now, they just expect people to drive over there & pay for “pot luck,” which is out of the question since we live in another county. Don’t know why people continue to eat there.More
