“Man-O-Man” – is all this Yankee Godfather can say about a recent lunch that was devoured in Montgomery, AL.

It was an old southern “meat & 3″ as my rebel brothers call it.  Dipped in great history, nostalgia and heavily connected to the state legislative lawmakers in Alabama, the restaurant sits strategically next to the Goat Hill Tavern in the lobby area of an old hotel called the Capitol Inn Hotel.  This legendary eatery has been there for years.

Wed’s Menu includes Fried Chicken, Baked Pork Chops, Country Friend Steak, Mashed Potatoes, Collard Greens, Friend Okra, Black-Eyed Peas, Rolls and Cornbread, Banana Pudding, Dump Cake and Pecan Pie.  Holy Mother of the sweet baby Jesus in the manger!!   Need I say more.  I felt as if I gained 20 pounds after lunch and had the most violent urge for a mid-day nap that I had ever experienced! At first I thought I’d been poisoned, but no, it was just a week’s worth of food trying to make it’s way through my body.

Another great part of the restaurant is that you can enjoy eating with people from all walks of life.  That day I talked to lawyers, military guys from Maxwell Military base, teachers, and regular blue collar workers that just wanted to get in out of the heat and eat a great meal.  I give this restaurant an 11 on a scale of 1-10 (ed note: you can’t give it an 11 if the scale only goes to 10. If you try, you’ll only break it.).

Just go there, visit downtown and you’ll agree it will have been well worth the trip !
