Minnie's consistently wins the award for best fried chicken in Columbus. They always have an amazing selection of Southern eats!

I stopped by today for lunch. I'm southern born and bred, and the food did not disappoint. The portions are generous, the prices are good, and the main courses were delicious. I got fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, and mac'n'cheese, and it was better than my grandma makes! However, the lemonade was gross (tasted like sugar water with very... More

I've been to Minnie's years ago and recently went again. Glad to say the quality of the food and service hasn't changed. The dining room isn't fancy and the food is served cafeteria style but it's good food and inexpensive. I can't recommend Minnie's enough. It's only open for lunch and believe me, it gets busy fast.

I thought I did a review on this restaurant years ago but I guess I didn't. Well just know that terms of endearment will be greatly used here. Your name will change to sweetie, suga, darling or honey bun before you leave. Lol. All I can say is the food is great and the customer service is even greater. I... More

Southern food made just right. Not in the best of places but it is a down home spot and has good service.
