Came for dinner. All 3 of us ordered the 'special' with a meat, 2sides and drink. Hamburger steak was cooked over a flame...yum!!! Sides were not over cooked. Will come back again...just have to time because they do get busy but turnover for tables is quick.

I came here based on the recommendation of a client. I had the 1/2 rack of wet BBQ ribs, baked BBQ beans and the fries. The ribs were cooked to perfection. They were moist, meaty not fatty and just fell off the bone. The BBQ sauce was in the correct amount with just the correct zip to it. The beans... More

We have been going to Trace Grill since moving to the area in 2000. Love the sandwiches. Try the Minnesota Fats Chicken or the catfish you wont go wrong. Something on the menu for everyone in the family.

I'd never been to the Trace Grill, but my wife brought home a couple of their platters and I enjoyed mine. Eating there is a whole different experience. It's so relaxing. And the food is very affordable. The blue plate specials have so many meats to choose from. The burgers are huge. Catfish, shrimp, oysters, all terrific. Yummy sides, too.... More

The Trace is a local place with good southern style cooking plus burgers and sandwiches. I had a catfish platter and it was fresh and delicious. More than I could eat! It is very casual, you order at a counter and it is brought to you. The price is reasonable. My husband had the chicken fried steak with 2 vegetables... More

They have a good southern menu. I had country fried steak which was small but good. Turnip greens had a lot of stems and had sugar in it which I do not care for. Black eyed peas were undercooked. One of us had hamburger steak, Mac and cheese & fried okra which were good. The red beans and rice was... More

From burgers, or chicken to blue plates and BBQ there are a lot of options on the menu. Good southern fare, done nicely at reasonable prices.
