No Website (because they don’t need one!)
I arrived at the restaurant with some dining companions for lunch. I was told to make it an early lunch because when noon rolls around the place is packed. That advice was truthful and wise because as we left just after noon there was a steady stream of people heading into the joint.
The environment in the restaurant is pleasant. There’s a good number of tables and chairs, and they keep the place clean. It’s not fancy by any means. If you want ambiance go to Perry’s, this is a place to chow freakin’ down!
To order you step up to a counter and grab a tray and utensils, then you walk down the line and point at what you want. What they have is serious soul food! Everything from ribs to ham hocks to meatloaf and more. They also have a great assortment of veggies.
I opted for the 2 meat and 3 veg plate. I got meatloaf and ribs, then some kernel corn, black eyed peas, and green beans. They threw in a corn bread muffin for good measure.
After making my way to a table I took inventory of my meal. It was a lot! These folks don’t spare the ladle, and every portion was substantial. And talk about good! You can tell they take the time to make each offering a special treat of its own. The meatloaf was seasoned just right and topped with a tasty brown gravy that complimented the loaf perfectly.
The ribs were really good and had to be 6 or 7 inches long. The BBQ sauce isn’t intrusive to your taste buds like other restaurants I’ve eaten at, and the bone was small so you got a ton of meat.
The corn kind of faked me out because it looked like just plain sweet corn, but the juice it was in had a perfect creamed corn flavor!
Overall, I was really impressed with this hidden jewel on the south east side of town. The proprietors are really nice people. In fact, Mrs G herself came out to our table and chatted for a bit. It’s nice to see owners that really enjoy their work and their customers. Go check out this joint today!
