Great home style cooking and great wait staff. Food seems fresh and easy to get in and out of in the parking area. Building is a bit aged but clean. Highly recommended

This is a very good local place. The fried green tomatoes were excellent juicy and tart. I had the chicken with dressing and it came with 3 sides I had great real mashed potatoes and house made cinnamon apples. The service was very friendly and efficient. It is where the locals eat and a gray alternative to the chain restaurants... More

Our antique car club often has meetings at this restaurant in their private rooms. Servers are attentive and pretty good at figuring out who has ordered what...not your average servers... especially when we are in the middle of a meeting and not paying attention to them.... Excellent food and fair pricing. I hesitate to recommend as we don't want to... More

Visited on 9/3/16. The waitress was friendly. We never had to wait for refills. The food was very good. The rolls and corn muffins are the best I've tasted anywhere. We almost left once we saw the outside of the building, but are glad we decided to go in and look at the menu. This will be a place I... More

We were visiting Tunica, Mississippi and had met a gentleman at our hotel who raved about Dale's in Southaven, MS. We decided to check it out, but, boy, were we disappointed! Our waiter was very forgetful and seemed quite inexperienced. We ordered from the menu and 15 minutes after ordering, our waiter returned to us telling us that two of... More

Dale's is a "Must Visit" if you are in the Memphis area. They have the best real southern cooking! No package stuff served here. The portions are big, so keep that in mind when ordering or you won't have room for their amazing homemade pies!

Waitress was great. Food was yummy. If you like country,homestyle cooking you'll love Dales. Come hungry because the portions are plentiful. In fact we all took boxes back to our hotel room.

Hubby & I went here on a Sunday afternoon for lunch around 2 pm. I had the chicken & dressing (yummy), creamed potatoes, black eyed peas, mac & cheese. He had the fried pork chop & veggies. The rolls and cornbread are delicious.
