I will speak on this last experience, which involved the Beans & Cornbread To-Go building / service area. I ordered two meals over the phone, and was told 20 minutes; which turned into... More

I had not eaten here in quite sometime. I've relocated from the area, but was in town and decided to eat here. Some of the food was good and some of it was not. I was sorely disappointed in the candid yams.

I had the catfish, yams, and greens. The food was really good. THE CORNBREAD WITH THE PEACH BUTTER.... it was so amazing. The staff was pleasant, I wished I had known about this spot the night before which would have been a Saturday because it seems like it would have been a nice night spot as well, I was there...

I went out here with my dad for lunch and had a phenomenal meal! The ribs were falling off the bone smothered in a tangy, smoky, and flavorful sauce. Also do yourself a favor and get the sweet potato cornbread muffins.
