Hours are 11am-2pm. We were there at 10:15 and people were already waiting. Worth the wait! Still run by Mrs Wilkes family. Great grandson asked the blessing - nice touch! Food was best southern food I’ve had out. Collards were really good!

I consider myself a foodie. I've had great food at restaurants at home and abroad. Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room is one of the best!. Everything was down-home goodness. The only flaw is I couldn't bring the leftovers home for later.

This place is unique and worth waiting on line (there is never not a line) to get a taste of some amazing food. There is no menu, it’s family style and you sit among strangers. The food is set out in front of everyone and...More

Only cash, no credit cards accepted. $23 pp taxes included, gratuities if you wish. There is always a waiting line, although they seemed to have empty tables inside at least at 12h15. Therefore we only waited 10 minutes to get a table. Definitely do not...More

I don't believe there are stairs since it is ground level, but possibly one small step at the entrance, sorry, I can't recall. But I believe it is handicapped accessible. You may want to call to confirm.
