We enjoyed lunch at the 6th Avenue location. This location serves it food family style, which is a lot of fun. We sat next to a group of women who are local to that area and the conversation was a good as the food. Speaking of the food, it was delicious and there was plenty of it.On the menu today was fried chicken, pot roast, vegetable lasagna, collard greens, pinto beans, green beans, a variety of rolls and cornbread as well as pudding, The motto there is "I've eaten and now I can't get up". Boy is that true!
The atmosphere reminded me a lot of the family style Amish restaurants we have visited in the past. You really do feel like you are family in these places.
We are planning a return trip on a Friday when they serve catfish.

This was beyond a doubt the best place I have ever ate. We had lunch on a Sunday and it was just incredible. I don't know what else to say. The large table format was great. It felt like a family reunion without the family. You sit next to people and you get to meet them while everyone is moaning in joy over every bite.

We decided to try Cafe Monell on Bransford this past weekend. The food was delicious, and staff was friendly. Our family had the fried chicken, catfish, mashed potatoes, cornbread, and pinto beans. They were all great. This location serves only individual servings, you have to order at the counter, and carry your food to your table. I believe the other locations provide table service, and items are served family style. I think we will like that a little better and will try that next time. This is definitely a great place to eat!

It was everything I expected it to be and then some!!! An endless amount of food including (but not limited to): mashed potatoes, gravy, biscuits, hush puppies, fried chicken, catfish, Mac n cheese, green beans, chicken salad, etc. the food just kept coming out. And delicious banana pudding!!! An excellent value for $18 a plate plus sweet tea or lemonade included.
