I showed up at 9:30 to be the 8th in line to wait for the 11 am opening, and it was well worth the wait! All 15 or so dishes, served family style, were delicious. If you're wanting wonderful southern cooking, this is the place...More

This is a one of a kind experience. You wait in a long line. There were roughly 70 people ahead of us when we arrived at 10:15. We narrowly missed the first seating and ended up gaining entry around Noon. I would recommend arriving by...More

Mrs Wilkes was worth the wait. We got there at 10:30 am and we're sat by about 11:45. Food was really good (better than Paula dean in my opinion) and the family style dining offered a unique experience and chance to meet a variety of...More

I am not one to wait more than 1/2 hour at any restaurant. There are far too many places offering great food to wait long. I contemplated this as I waited in line for 90 minutes in 90 degree heat for Mrs. Wilkes dining room...More

What an amazing lunch experience. The selection of food was incredible and the fried chicken was simply mouth watering. The wait staff did a terrific job. It truly was like celebrating enjoying a big meal with friends at home. I especially liked getting to meet...More

I don't recall all of the vegetable and side dishes because there were so many - beans, mac and cheese, beans. I could have been happy with the sweet potatoes alone - my favorite. Most of these didn't seem to have pork in... More
