You better get here before 10 AM if you even dream of experiencing their biscuits and gravy! These tasty morsels sell out quickly, so if you aren’t up early, you’ll be straight outta luck! This casual, cash-only cafe was opened up in 1962 and have some of the most loyal customers you will ever meet–some are even third-generation fans! It was clear that the world needed more Mary Lou’s, so the company now owns three locations! Locals know that Mary Lou’s lunches (and pies!) are just as delicious as breakfast, so even if you like to sleep in, you are sure to find some fabulous food…but we still can’t get over their legendary gravy-smothered biscuits!
