“What happened to this place?”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Either this place has changed hands or the owners have given up and just don't care anymore. I remembered this place fondly from road trips in the past. Even received a cookbook as a Christmas present once.
Instant gross mashed potatoes?
Cheap instant gravy?
Unfriendly lady behind the register. If you are the owners of ten years ago, how sad. Maybe I remember it better than it was.

“Great place for Breakfast”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Just a good old down-home place to get breakfast on a Sunday (or any other day, I guess) either before church, after church (or even instead of church!)

Wonderful little restaurant, where the locals eat! Country style cooking .... great soups. The specials always seem to be excellent. Fair pricing, not expensive. We eat here when we are in the area .... never disappointed

“Good Value”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

We have eaten at Golden Girls many times over the last 10 years. The food is reasonably well-prepared Southern-style food. The prices are very reasonable.

“Classic American Food”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

I liked pretty much everything about Golden Girls (except maybe the restroom). It looks like it was a real log cabin - you enter into a "kitchen area" (complete with a stove, kitchen sink, and mixer) before being escorted to your seating area. It was decorated for Christmas to the nines. The waitresses seemed to know the locals and they made a lot of their desserts in house. The prices were right on the money.

I loved the red eye gravy (bypassed on giving it to the toddler) and I always enjoy a good cup of oatmeal so no complaints there. The cheese ON TOP of the omelette was out of the ordinary but it tasted good so I cannot complain. Overall, everything was good! Nothing fancy, no bernaise, hollandaise, or other fancy sauce.

The Italian Creme cake was unbelievable delicious. So good that I didn't share.
