Matthews Cafeteria, Atlanta, GA

On a recent trip to Atlanta, I visited a customer (the maker of the best frame machine in the world) in the suburb of Tucker and he suggested I eat dinner over at Matthews Cafeteria, just off the endless Lawrenceville Highway.

Matthews Cafeteria cooks food like your Grandma used to cook.
Meat and potatoes.
Comfort food.

I ordered too much and took some home with me (let me just make that clear right now).  I got the pot roast, chicken and dumplings, cabbage, green beans, mac-n-cheese, and a fine slice of pecan pie.  My husband got creamed corn for his vegie and strawberry shortcake for his dessert.

All the food tasted wonderful.  I enjoyed the pot roast more than the chicken and dumplings.  The staff was unbelievably friendly and helpful.  The decor is simple, country.  The building is very interesting, old storefront type that has indications it might have served as a church at one time.  Take the kids, this is a great restaurant for families.  Some tables are huge and will seat 20 or so.

This is a definite stop for me whenever I'm in the area.
