My husband and I were driving back to Florida from a trip out of town, and along the way we were discussing where to eat. My husband mentioned barbeque, so I did an online search for barbeque in the Montgomery area, and up popped Davis' Cafe. This is NOT a barbeque restaurant, but we ended up pretty happy with our meals. Realize that it is in a deserted, run down looking area off the beaten path, but if that doesn't bother you, then go for it. We didn't care because it wasn't far off the interstate. The server gives you a paper that lists the meats and vegetables for the day with no prices listed, and desserts for the day with prices listed, and you pick your meat and three sides. My husband ordered sweet tea and said it was sickeningly sweet for him. He ordered the breaded pork chop, rice and gravy, fried okra, and fresh field peas. I ordered fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, buttered corn, and field peas. My husband's pork chop was a good size, and he liked it. My fried chicken, a leg and thigh, were small pieces but very tasty and reminded me of my own mom's fried chicken that she used to make when I was a kid. The mashed potatoes were excellent, real potatoes that were creamy but not too runny and with small chunks of potato here and there. The corn appeared to have been cooked in a pan with butter, not boiled, so it had a color between yellow and brown, but this is actually exactly how I prefer my corn, and it was wonderful. The field peas were really good, too, but I couldn't finish them all because I wanted to save a little room for dessert. The portions were plentiful, let me tell you. Expecting a smaller portion of dessert, my husband and I both ordered banana pudding, but we received styrofoam "to go" containers of banana pudding that were probably about a cup and a half each, about double the quantity that we expected. It was still lukewarm, not chilled, but I actually enjoy mine this way, and it was really good with a lot of bananas and vanilla wafers in it. We could have actually split one banana pudding between us, if we'd known they were this big, but we didn't ask in advance, and neither one of us was able to finish ours after eating all that food. Including drinks but not including dessert, my meal was about $9, and my husband's was $12. I felt that mine was reasonable, but he felt that his pork chop meal was a little bit overpriced, but the prices weren't on the menu, and we didn't ask. Regardless, the server was really nice and helpful, and the food was good. We would probably stop in here again when traveling through Montgomery at lunch time.
