Marge's Cafe prepares food much like Grnadmother would. Great fried chicken, chicken fried steak with fabulous mashed potatoes and green beans are a favorite. Fried catfish is also a popular item.

They have the best burgers. The catfish and BLT are great too. Don't mind the size of the building. It might be small but the food size is big.
