“Great place for a quick and tasty bite!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

When we travel we like to find local places to add to our experience. You can always go to a chain restaurant and know exactly what to expect or you can go to a local restaurant and be surprised. The help that Trip Advisor provides in making these decisions is invaluable. Reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to try Aunt Effie's during a stop on a road trip from Ohio to Florida. The food here was great! This place is nothing fancy, but if you want the southern staples with good service and a reasonable price then don't be afraid to stop here. This is the type of place you think of the when you picture the old roadside diners with the "Good Food" sign out front. With Aunt Effie's you actually get the good food!

“Yummy road soul food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014

I wanted roadside diner on the way home Sunday for lunch. I think this was a good choice- nice atmosphere and great southern sides- the okra and tomato salad was like nothing I'd ever had. Proteins were a little underwhelming- Pork tenderloin for me and meatloaf for my wife. Fried green tomatos were pretty good. The turnips greens were fantastic! CocaCola cake was something I never experienced and loved it. For the location couldn't get much better, wait staff was overwhelmed but nice, and it was an amazingly busy Sunday.

“Good southern cooking.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

Don't expect anything fancy when you go here. It's a very casual place, but the food is always good and service is usually good. The chicken fried steak is great.
