We stopped here on our way home from a vacation for lunch. We saw that it had been featured on diners, drive-ins, and dives and it peaked our interest especially since I grew up in the south. The restaurant itself is small but cozy and it is very informal, reminds me of little mom and pop places in the south. We were greeted and told to seat ourselves and pretty quickly asked for our drink order. We ordered sweet tea and strawberry lemonade which were both delicious, the sweet tea was very sweet like a southern sweet tea should be and they put whipped cream on top of the strawberry lemonade which was a nice surprise. We ordered the brisket with mashed potatoes and gravy and a side of buttered corn, the southern fried chicken with candied yams and a side of mac and cheese, and my daughter who is picky ordered the hamburger and fries. Before our meal came we got corncakes which looked like pancakes and were very yummy and my 5 year old even loved them which was a shock since it wasn't in her usual menu of foods. The meal came quicker than expected and everything was great! The chicken was the perfect balance of crispy on the outside and moist inside. The candied yams were perfect...brisket tender and flavorful. I had read other reviews that people considered the mashed potatoes like being from a box...I don't think they are from a box but they definitely are not as flavored or as thick as I like but still not bad. My daughter said her hamburger was also good, perfect size for a 10 year old. Portions are plentiful so make sure not to fill up on beverages before your meal comes. Diners, drive-ins, and dives did not let me down on this one....I will definitely be back and don't mind making the 2 hour drive from my home just to eat here. More than likely my husband will drive so that I can sleep the whole way home after I put myself into a yummy food coma courtesy of Southern Kitchen.
