Great lunch and service on our tour of the low country with the Rev. The smothered pork chops with greens and red rice were phenomenal as well as the warm corn bread which was to die for

Okay, so I am old enough to remember eating in restaurants like this when they were new. We go there for the food and not the decor. Somedays you can go to a chain restaurant with the decor and menu that draw you in. And sometimes when you are back in the car you have to ask yourself why did I spend $40 bucks on lunch and it was nothing special.The MJ's of the world live on because the locals love the place and the food they serve is good old home cooking and lunch for two is NOT $40. Four of us had a nice meal and we do enjoy eating where the locals eat.

I've driven past MJ's Restaurant many times and never stopped to eat because the exterior of the building is old and needs updating. However, after trying MJ's, I'll be back often. The food is delicious and cooked to order.
The house salad is huge and delicious and includes bacon and hard boiled eggs if you desire them. The fried shrimp is lightly battered and prepared to perfection. The hamburger steak is lean and delicious.
The atmosphere is lacking, but the courtesy of the small staff and the wonderful food more than make up for the dated decor.

If you're needing some great fried chicken (cooked AFTER you order it) and delicious sides (including some serious mac and cheese), this is the place for you. The owner, Sherry, is hospitable and a great cook. It's not fancy, but you'll leave full and happy.
