Bettie Jean’s Homestyle Cooking
The daily menu reads like Sunday lunch at grandma’s house: smothered pork chops, fried catfish, slabs of meat loaf studded with green peppers and onions and sauced with a tomato gravy. Did we mention the tender fried chicken with the crispy coating? It’s some of the best we’ve tasted. Sides are a perfect complement—sinfully rich mac and cheese, spicy red beans, cinnamony sweet potatoes, and stewed okra that has a little pinch of sweet to it. The lunch menu changes daily, so there is always more to try (along with fresh pies and cakes). We can’t wait to go back.
