“Cafeteria food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The food is usually good but the restaurant area is nothing great at all. The carpets look and smell dirty and the wait staff is lacking.

“Tasty Food, Many Choices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

Piccadilly is consistently our "go to" place for food, fast and with plenty of choices. This is a cafeteria-style restaurant with extensive salads, entrees like fried catfish, roast beef, gumbo, etc. as well as many other entree choices, and wonderfully delicious and well-seasoned sides like Mac and cheese, beans, greens, and more. Finish up with hot rolls, cornbread or a slice of homemade pie. The atmosphere is ok, could be freshened up a bit, but I like seeing the regular employees, some who have been there for decades.

“Consistent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

I was raised on Picadilly. The highlight of our week was a Friday night trip (some 25 miles away) to dine at the Picadilly in Monroe. (Friday was rumored to be the night the Cod fish was the freshest.) Growing up and moving to various parts of the US, I continued to make Picadilly a regular, albeit infrequent destination for a fast meal that isn't compressed between two bread pieces. But years later I had the opportunity to return to my very first Picadilly (in Monroe), the one when I spent many Friday nights as a kid. I have to say, not too much has changed; the food is still far better than any other 'fast' meal you could have, the place has been remodeled (perhaps several times since my childhood days), the prices are more (where are they NOT?), but the variety, options and the quality are still the same.

Obviously this isn't fine dining. You won't be offered a bottle of wine, and after you choose your food by sight, you can (but don't have to) deliver it to the table of your choice. (Be sure to tip yourself if you do! :)) But for the instances when time is limited and you're just burned out on the burgers, try the Picadilly. They only thing that might slow you down would be the line that has formed because there are so many other people choosing the same dining experience as you!

“Hot is the only word”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

I was so disappointed in my last visit to the Picadilly. I have been going here for 40 years and always enjoy but this last visit was alarming. The air condition was not working and apparently had been broken for sometime. The tables were not clean. The servers ignored us and the food was less than their usual fare.

“wow for caf food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

The best caf food I have ever had. I have been going there for the past 30 plus years. The food is very well seasoned and the quality is good. The only drawback is that they have been servo g the same items for at least 30 years. Since they have had time to perfect their totems be sure to order shrimp etoufe
