Great Southern Cooking
For those of you not from the south, it's a great place to sample purple hull peas and some of the best fried okra around. I'm picky about fried okra. It has to be perfectly crispy, without being burned. Bobby's Country Cookin' achieves that.
Bobby's is pretty inexpensive. You can get an entree, roll or cornbread and 2 vegetables for $7.50, 3 vegetables for $5.50 or 4 vegetables for $6.50. Meals are served cafeteria style in a casual atmosphere.
The menu for the week is posted online. They offer 4 entrees, including fried chicken and chicken fried steak, and 12 vegetables daily. The sides don't vary too much and include things like mashed potatoes, green beans, greens and other southern favorites. Then, there's the pie. The daily pies include pecan and coconut cream pie along with some other pies or desserts. If you're lucky, they'll have the McRae pie, which is a chocolate pie on top of a coconut pie. Slices are $2.25.
You've got to try the fried chicken. It's perfectly spiced and fried just right. Sometimes fried chicken can be dry, but Bobby's gets it right. It's crispy on the outside and moist and juicy on the inside.
Bobby's cream pies are the kind of cream pie I like: smooth, creamy and topped with whipped cream instead of meringue.
As mentioned, Bobby's can get crowded. Get there early for the best selections. Portions of the entrees are adequate. The vegetables are piled on.
