This place was recommended to me at the Columbus Visitors' Center (which was lovely, by the way, and I don't fault them for steering me to Minnie's). We were just driving through Columbus at lunchtime, and I asked for a locally owned, quintessentially Columbus restaurant....More

Their chicken is one of the best in town. It is flavorful and juicy. The sweet tea is nice and sweet. It is a good place to eat.

Quite a treat if you are looking to enjoy some country home-cooking while in Columbus. Authentic food and no nonsense service with a smile.

They usually will post what they are serving that day on their Facebook page. Their food changes on a daily basis. If you search for "Minnie's Uptown Restaurant" it should pop up.
