Doug’s has been around for 40 years or so and has always served quality Southern food. Friday is all you can eat catfish and my favorite side is the sweet potato casserole.

If you want some great southern food at an exceptional price eat here. Good food with lots of selections. Staff will get you what you want even if it's not on the menu. If they have the food they will cook it to your liking.

Passed by around lunchtime today and decided to stop. Very good prices and variety. I had pinto beans, silver queen creamed corn, fried okra, and cornbread. It was all delicious. Friendly wait staff. Quick service considering the place was packed.
