The Taste of Lemon is a historic place in La Grange, GA to have great southern cooking. They always have a variety of vegetables & several meats to chose from. It's an open floor setting, tables & chairs, the service is always good, delicious desserts....More

Service was slow. With the exception of Mac and Cheese everything else ranged from bad (Salmon Croquettes - previously frozen, no salmon taste at all and about the size and consistency of golf balls), corn and green beans marginal, creamed potatoes pretty good. Really can't...More

Took a little trip (approximately 40 miles) with a friend when they suggested lunch at "A Taste of Lemon." It was worth the trip. I had the vegetable plate and tried some classic southern vegetables that I hadn't eaten in all my years living in...More

Open 11-2 so plan ahead but so worth it! This was like eating at granny's house during my childhood when all of the aunts and great aunts would bring their signature dish. Don't pass up the pineapple casserole! The cornbread is amazing. We had hamburger...More

The parking in inadequate, not handicap friendly, but the food is really good, with good portions. The earlier you get there the better. They serve from 11-2. Monday's are the best day, as we were told while eating there last Monday, they make everything fresh....More

The restaurant itself is located in an old church and is quite charming although it is pretty cramped and gets very crowded. The parking is also not large enough to accommodate diners at peak lunch time hours. The meal was decent. I had the meatloaf,...More

My husband and I had lunch here - we both ordered the vegetable plate which consisted of 10 veggies. It's Southern style - which means most items are overcooked. You get small portions of each vegetable but your plate is full! The mac n' cheese...More

The restaurant came recommended by several folks, so we tried it for lunch. It's in an old church and nothing fancy when you enter it, but the traditional southern cooking is worth overlooking any flaws. Beware, the portions are huge -- the lunch will make...More
