Awesome southern country food

The chicken and dressing is the best served on Thursday and Sunday. Love their salads dressings are homemade. Love the chicken fried chicken. Can't go wrong with many good choices. Rolls and cornbread are the bomb! Don't forget a homemade dessert. My pick is the chocolate pie!!

All their food has always been prepared with care over years of visits. Found out that to get the chicken that crispy way the owners have a seperate kitchen just to prep and cook the chicken! The chicken fried steak is right up there also. Wife loves the veggie plate sides.

The best home cooking next to your mama's! The food is excellent and service is great. They have an excellent variety of food. Everything from vegetables to steaks. Wait time is minimal unless with a very large group and even then it is reasonable. Great children's menu too.

Have eaten at Dales about five times in the last six months and each time try something new, although the fried chicken is hard to resist. The veggies are also wonderful as is the bread.

It's a popular meat and three type of restaurant. The food is good but I just wasn't a fan. The place has an air of southern aristocracy, but lacks the elitism of an aristocrat. To be honest I've lost my taste for all meat and three places. I ordered a salad because I am trying to live healthier. The salad... More

Just good home cookin', nothing fancy. We were traveling enroute to NOLA, and stayed in the area to visit GRACELAND and the Art museum. Were close to Dale's and stopped in for a quick supper. Food was good, service outstanding, $ verrrry reasonable. You will not leave hungry !!!! Made a return visit the following day.

Food was ok. The service was friendly but slow; however there was 7 of us at the table. Lots of items on the menu. Most of us order from the lunch special.

Most everything I have been served at Dale's over the years has been above average. The portions are always more than enough for a big appetite.

Definitely an experience to good 'Home Cooking' ! Was introduced to 'Chicken-Fried-Chicken' ! loved the vegetable selection and knowing that it was not canned. Also the Macaroni and Cheese was to 'Die-For' ( we usually don't eat this, unless it is Homemade). Excellent Service. Very Polite Staff.

We were looking for someplace near Graceland for dinner and found Dales on TripAdvisor. As others have noted, this is a family-run restaurant with good home-style food, friendly service and great value. However, if you want a cocktail or beer/wine with your meal, please note that they do not serve any alcohol.
