Matthews Cafeteria – Good Comfort Food

Today was unusual in that I met my brother-in-law for lunch at Matthews Cafeteria in Tucker, Georgia.  We have hardly ever gotten together in 19 years and he said he owed me for lunch although I could not remember the last time I had bought him a meal.  Anyway, he was adamant about it so I agreed even though I had asked him to meet.

Matthews was, in the last year, on one of the Food Network shows, Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.  You can guess which one it qualified under.  After getting berated by my brother-in-law for getting a big piece of baked fish instead of country-fried steak, we found a table and caught up with each other’s lives.  I had fried okra, greens, scalloped potatoes, and tea.  It was all good and the workers were friendly.  Here’s an article from the AJC about the show and filming at the landmark restaurant.
