“A very nice southern style meat & three”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

We stopped by on the way through for lunch and found a very nicely done restaurant painted in blues reds and white, very attractive and clean. We were told to sit where we liked, we did and were promptly served. The menu is a typical meat and three menu, meatloaf, fried chicken, etc. We both ate vegetable plates. They were good but not exceptional. The green beans were barely seasoned at all and the cornbread dressing was too salty to eat. But for what it is, its nice. If I decide to stop by the next time through, I might try some of their meat dishes.

“Why dont they have fried chicken on the bone?”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

I like their pork roast & gravy with potatoes, but they don't have fried chicken except for chicken fingers. For a "meat & vegetable" kind of place. That doesnt make sense to me.

“Simple”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

This is a simple place with good plain food. I had the chicken salad, based on a TA review, and enjoyed it. It was a sensible portion, with a good bit of fresh fruit: considerably more fruit than chicken salad. Also at our table was a meat & three order, which was also fine.

“Everything is good but the grilled food is the best!”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

I have never eaten anything at the Blue Plate that was not good. It is obvius that the owners and employees take pride in what they do. The grilled items, chicken, pork chops, steak are all very flavorful, moist and tender, the best in Dothan by far. My daughter loves the chicken and dumplins on Wednesday. The little bisquits are outstanding.
