Fodor's Expert Review Mrs. Wilkes' Dining Room
Folks line up to enjoy Mrs. Wilkes's fine Southern fare, which has been served family-style at big tables for decades. Her granddaughter and great-grandson are keeping it a family affair in more ways than one (kids under 10 eat for halfp rice), and these days you can expect fried or roasted chicken, beef stew, collard greens, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, sweet-potato soufflé, and cornbread, along with favorites like banana pudding for dessert.
