Anonymous says I grew up only a couple of miles from Matthews and have eaten there many many times. This is home cooking to me. If you want a good southern experience, this is a must. I've never had anything I did not like but a couple of hilites from the menu that are my favorites. Fried chicken, chicken and dumplings, country fried steak, mashed potatoes. And no one mentions this but the best homemade Lemon Ice Box pie (with meringue) I have ever had. We will go there just to buy a whole lemon pie and it is gone by the end of the day. One of the things that makes this place special (other than the food) is the decor has not changed, ever. Same tables, chairs, flooring, incrdibly tiny bathroom, serving line, etc. You walk in there and you feel like you are going back in time. I am probably a little bias because I grew up on Matthews food, but if you want a great throw back southern cafeteria experience then make a trip there. Be sure and check the website because the menu is different each day of the week. They close at 8:00 each night and are not open on the weekends.
