Description: If you are craving authentic southern cooking, visit Cutts Restaurant in the Enterprise, AL area. Our family restaurant offers a complete range of your favorite southern dishes. With 46 years of experience, all our menu items are also available for catering. Cutts Restaurant guarantees a delightful dining experience for your family and friends! Cutts Restaurant started out as Cutts Grocery back in March 1967, in Level Plains (pictured above). Hubert and Pearlie Bell Cutts, with their children, Larry and Lou Ellen, bought a full line country store with meat market, gas pumps, groceries and even a barber shop, There weren't many places to eat so the Cutts invented the now famous Cutts Chili Dog, thus beginning Cutts Restaurant. In 1971, the family sold the grocery store in Level Plains and they decided to build some poultry houses. The Cutts opened Cutts Snack Bar in Enterprise in 1972. It was an immediate hit. They expanded their menu to include all sorts of short order sandwiches and side orders. As time went on, Hubert and Pearlie Bell decided to retire. In 1979, Larry and Ellen bought the snack shack. In 1980, they moved the snack bar down the street to its present location. What is now just the kitchen was the entire restaurant. They expanded the menu and operating hours. “Cutts,” as most people call the restaurant, was doing great. In 1987, Larry and Ellen decided to add a large dining room and open a buffet for lunch. It was a hit. The buffet featured country cooking - four meats, 14 vegetables and a lot of desserts. The new dining room seated 160 people In 1992, due to his health, Larry retired. His son Rick, with wife Liane, bought the restaurant - the third generation of Cutts. The parking lot was expanded, new equipment purchased and a catering service launched. Hours expanded from 10AM - 2PM to 8AM - 9PM, including a late breakfast and dinner buffet. The entire family is still heavily involve in the day-to-day operation of the business.

Reviewed January 30, 2012

I liked the ala carte style. Food is very good, down home cooking. Most of Enterprise is there at least once a week. Each day of the week has a certain menu item, that way you know what your getting. The dining area needs an update, looks pretty old dated. Prices are good

“Great home cooking (meat & two) & hot dog place. Good BBQ.”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

It's been a while since I've been there but the same people own it. The best fried chicken in Enterprise & the BEST mashed potatoes. Hot dogs are great. Dressing is really good. If you're in Enterprise at lunch I recommend eating there.

“Great home cooking! Hometown favorite.”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

Hometown favorite. Nothing fancy but good home cooking. Great mashed potatoes (everyday), dressing (Thursdays) and cornbread. Rarely had anything here I did not like (pork loin was the only thing I can think of). Meat and two - or however much you want. Free refills, non-smoking, good health score. Cafeteria style eating with servers refilling your drinks. You can also order burgers and hot dogs at the walk up counter if you would prefer.

“Down-home cooking at its finest”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

In Enterprise, AL on business. Cutts was highly recommended by locals. Great tasting meal. Pleasantly suprised they took AmEx. Incredible tasting pork chop (extremely moist) and two "vegetables." Had mashed potatoes and gravy for one vegetable. Chuckled to get Pecan Cobbler for my second "vegetable." Had a laugh at that. This dessert was amazing - inspired to try to recreate. Great folks, longtime restaurant, and where the locals definitely go. Higly recommend when you are in town.
