I work about a block away from the Blue Plate on S. Memorial, and occasionally my co-workers and I will order take out from Blue Plate. The portions are big, the food is good, I have no complaints. Pretty close to real home cooking.

Stopped here today for lunch and it was perfect! Home cooking flavors with plenty of options. I got the Saturday special chicken and dressing with tomato salad, broccoli rice casserole and apple cobbler all for $9.59. Great food and price and the service was wonderful.

My wife found this place for us while we were passing through on a road trip, and she definitely made a great choice. This is a textbook Southern meat and three restaurant. The staff is very friendly and the food is great. They've got a...More
