Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room
Mrs. Wilkes dining room has been open since 1943, and since its first year operating, it has stayed consistently busy. Maybe its the delicious, down-home style comfort food served. Maybe it’s the unique ambiance created with community tables. Or maybe it’s that each time you eat here you feel like more than a guest but like family. I’d like to think it’s all of these combined into one( it is!)
Before 11 the line fills the street, and when the doors open, guest come and sit with strangers at the tables for ten. Making new friends and sharing conversation over a platter of fried chicken, black-eyed peas, okra, all your favorites. The menu changes daily but the experience will last a lifetime.
