Very friendly and busy place. Walk in stans in line for service at a steam table. 3 meats and about vegetable selections. We had fried chicken, dressing, collards, fried green tomatoes and peach. All were very good. Very friendly staff.

Gladys seems to be a clean restaurant. THAT GOES A LONG WAY WITH ME. Having said that, I was poised for the much talked about "butter roll" thinking that it would be a yeast roll. Although many people LOVE bread pudding, I do not. So, that was a disappointment. But, I loved the corn pone. Also, I loved the fried... More

While visiting middle Georgia, we ventured over to Gladys Kitchen for some southern soul food. Went on a Friday just before noon. We were warmly greeted by Gladys' daughter and the other staff I had the baked chicken (pretty good), the fried chicken (excellent), dressing (very good), the collard greens (excellent) and the butter roll dessert (decadent, rich and real...

I usually do not go to Gladys' Kitchen on Sundays, but this past Sunday, I did and was very glad. The food was excellent and the servings were plentiful. The only draw back is the long line. There were so many people waiting to be served. Anyway, if you have the time to wait for lunch on Sunday's then I... More

Plenty of seating for a family meal or a couple. The decor is standard cafeteria but the food is delicious. the menu ties to the day of the week and of course there is fried fish on Friday and fried chicken everyday.

We visited Gladys' on a Sunday afternoon around 1:00 p.m. Lots of elegantly dressed folks arriving from church at the same time. We all lined up with trays and chose a meat, two vegetables and a bread for $6.75. The servers were incredibly nice. You received two pieces of chicken and they ask if you want white or dark. Both...

Read some reviews and tried it with my wife. The food was fabulous and the staff made us feel like we were guests in their home. Meal was topped off when we had the pleasure of eating the butter rolls dessert. If we were here longer we could and would eat there every day. Just sorry that they are not... More
