Margarine?

Margarine or "butter-flavored spread" tastes like plastic and adds absolutely nothing to the quality of the food. Even... read more

We haven't been here in a couple of years and decided to bring an out of town family member to have dinner at Vittles. We could not believe the poor quality of our food. Catfish and hush puppies were cold and not seasoned well. Okra was tasteless, hamburger steak was covered in a too salty, out of a can tasting... More

Great food - I got a veggie plate, and my daughter got a spicy chicken sandwich. Staff was attentive. Coconut cake for desert was wonderful!

Chicken and dressing w mashed potatoes and squash casserole. Chicken was seriously dry and the smallest on the bone breast I have ever seen, dressing was bland, chicken gravy ok. Mashed potatoes were bland and watery, brown gravy ok. Squash casserole was a disaster, imagine a bland macaroni w/cheese minus the macaroni and replaced with squash.

When we couldn't get in another restaurant, we have Vittles a try. And wow! So glad we did. We truly enjoyed our breakfast! Fresh and tasted wonderful. Pancakes were top notch, melt in your mouth!

My wife and I have eaten there for lunch five or six times in the last three years and the catfish with jalapeño hushpuppies have always been good. Service is always vgood and the prices are reasonable for the area and quality/quantity of food. Definitely worth more return visits!

My family and I eat at Vittles at least three times a month and have been doing so for years. This is a popular meat and three establishment where the food is consistently very good. Their chicken fried chicken is as good as you will find anywhere (including at home). The wait staff is always pleasant and welcomes everyone with... More
