The menu is quite nice -- burgers, salads and "comfort food" entrees (aka chicken fried steak!). The big open, high-ceilinged building was very rustic and looked as though it really rocked on the weekends with a big bar and a huge stage in back for live music.
We were warned that Auntie Skinners feels themselves above the law regarding no smoking, and that they consider themselves a bar and not a restaurant. We can attest to the fact that smoking is indeed allowed -- even the waitresses were smoking when we walked out. But we sat in the back away from the bar and until someone at the table next to us lit up, it wasn't bad and we didn't notice the smell.
We got chicken fried chicken and BLTs at our table. The chicken was huge, but it was rather greasy. The fried okra that came with it was delicious, but the mashed potatoes were about the worst I've ever tasted. They even looked odd -- like they were mashed with water instead of milk, no salt or butter. The BLTs were made with Texas toast and were good. But you have to take your sandwich apart and put your own condiments (mayo, mustard) on it at the table, which we thought was unusual. Also, the toast was dry, not buttered like most sandwiches are prepared.
The wait staff was very friendly, the manager stopped over to check on us. Prices were very reasonable -- $10-12 per person.
