“Southern cookin done right”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

Great place for lunch. They are absolutely great for catering. Always friendly. You know it's true soul food when they serve it up and call you baby sweety darling. Parking is always get in where you can and the dining room is like a cafeteria but its good ol southern soul food.

“Columbus icon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

The Fried Chicken is GREAT! The sides left a little to be desired. Everyone enjoyed their fried chicken but the rice was watery and the broccoli was cold. The cafeteria style of feeding is the root cause of the cold sides - you have to stick with the popular ones such as corn and mashed potatoes to avoid the others that have been sitting out a while. I'd recommend the corn bread- fantastic.
All in all its worth the trip to this long standing Columbus icon.

“Good food..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Good southern home style food and I much proffered it above any type of fast food places. Don't let the location scare you, and if you arrive after the lunch rush hour, the lines are gone and the place is almost empty.

“Food was good...staff was friendly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

If you don't mind eating out of plastic plates and using a plastic knife and fork then you'll probably like eating here. In my opinion, the food is just average. I try to be realistic and honest when I write my reviews and I really don't know what all the rave is about by previous reviewers. The appearance of the restaurant (actually more like a cafeteria) is just plain; nothing fancy. I did think the prices were reasonable.

“Classic meat & three”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

If you want good southern cooking, Minnie's is your place! The line can be quite long, but it moves quickly. They do a good job with the kids as well, letting them pick what they want on their kid's plate. One of the few places that the whole family likes that serves vegetables! Menu changes daily so you may not see your favorite, but there will always be something else just as delicious in its spot!
