When you go to Mrs. Wilkes, you have to be in the right frame of mind. This will not be a private dining experience. In fact, it will be a more of a social occasion than a meal. Not that the food isn't fantastic. All those Southern comfort foods, and so many choices!! But the appeal of this place is truly mingling and getting to know your fellow diners. From the off hand conversations with the people standing in line with you, to sharing a anecdote with a table full of what was complete strangers a moment ago, you will be engaged with those around you. Locals and travelers alike, you find that the differences and reservations disappear, and that ancient ritual of sharing food with another human brings out the social being in all of us. People from all over the world, from all different social and economic and ethnic backgrounds share a table and a wonderful meal....and more importantly...a little piece of themselves. If you come here just for the food, while quite delicious, you will be missing the whole point of Mrs. Wilkes. Loosen up, take your time, and open up :)
