If you are hungry for good Southern homestyle cooking, go to Minnies. Tastes like food my grandmother used to make. Very authentic. Multiple selections of meats, vegetables, breads, and desserts. Long line at lunch time, but they get you through the line quickly.

Go there for lunch, doesn't matter the day. If you're looking for southern food, best in Columbus IMHO. Don't come here looking for low calorie options, but wear sweatpants, you WILL eat too much.

I grew up on a farm in Alabama and we enjoyed vegetables from my mother's garden each day and chicken and eggs from her henhouse. In those days, we did not have money to go to restaurants, but there was nothing like being as Mama's...More

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.
