Oh my, what a treat. Some of the best food I've ever had. Sho' Nuff Soul Food Diner just knocked it out of the park. Today I had perfect Fried Chicken and smothered pork chops, collard greens, cabb...age and sweet tea for lunch. Followed up by some of the very best, "made daily" homemade peach cobbler. Actually, on the cobbler I don't believe I've ever had better. And if you knew all the great chefs in my family, you'd know I'm saying a lot. Everything is made fresh daily and while it's in season. Head Chef Tony Brooks and his staff have out done themselve. On the service, none better. The staff was continuously moving and Irma Marie was there just at the right time, every time. And let me say, the service is very important to me. I certainly don't like it when they drop off you food and then disappear not do I like it when they hover over you. Irma Marie was perfect. She somewhat, monitored me from a distance and knew exactly when I was ready for more tea or had any other need.
Now, I want to warn you in advance. This food is extremely good and the people of Rockdale know it. I didn't have to wait to be seated but this places is busy and people were continuesly coming in. And being that everything is cooked fresh, they did run out of two of the specials for the day, the smothered pork chops and I think the meatloaf while I was there between 12:30 and 1:00. However, Tony quickly started making a new item. What I'm saying is that the food is that great so don't be late. However, if you do get there later, the menu is full of great items.
After my meal I went over and visited briefly with the creators of this amazing restaurant Dr. & Mrs Brooks and told them what a great enjoyment my meal was and how under priced it is. Shortly after that Dr. Brooks was kind enough to give me a tour and I discovered even more great things. In the back I found a large room for private parties, three large bbq pits (watch for a review coming soon in Texas Barbecue on facebook.) and a Cajun Kitchen. So when it's crawfish season again, you know where you will find me, my Son and daughter-in-law. Right here at Sho' Nuff.
