If you are looking for no-frills, good ole' southern home cookin', make your way to Americana. Nothing fancy but reliably good food at a very reasonable price. The service may depend on who is your waitperson . . . but the food is usually in front of you shortly after you order. Great lunch specials and a daily special. Love... More

My husband and I decided to try Americana’s breakfast. Dinner has been inconsistent for me there, but I thought, how can you mess up breakfast? The Americana has a sanitation grade of 99 which is pretty perfect to me! I won’t eat anywhere the grade is below 95. Service was excellent and I’m sorry I can’t remember our server’s name,... More

The Americana is a diner with home-cooked style food. You can compare it to Jimmie’s and The Sunrise. We decided to try Americana again; the last time wasn’t so good. This time, I ordered the special which was meat loaf with Creole sauce, mashed potatoes and green beans. My husband ordered the baked chicken with mashed potatoes and a salad.... More

I had dinner at this restaurant tonight after a referral from a friend about their fried squash. I haven't had fried squash in years, so I had to try it. This restaurant was packed with locals so you know it must be good. Their menu is extensive, but focuses on a meat/fish/chicken with two sides. I ordered flounder with fried... More

I had baked chicken and gravy here and fried fish on 2 different occasions. They were good as was the fried squash. One day I slipped up and got soup and salad and a grilled cheese....In a word....Awful!!!! Barfed all the way home. Canned soup. Government cheese sandwich. Salad was a mix from a bag with dressing. Yuck!!! Be careful.

When I just need to eat and don't want to cook this is a great place to go. Lots of locals meet and eat here. Best fried squash anywhere! Love the London Brooks trips or the grilled chicken chef salad. Lasagna is great especially when you want something to warm you up. No would rather have a meal here for... More

My husband and I ate here for dinner and mine was terrible. I ordered the baked ham sandwich with fruit cup. Well the fruit cup was like the ones you buy at the grocery store. Yep, it was in the plastic cup still sealed. I thought I would get a fresh fruit cup. A third of the ham was inedible... More

When you want some good home-style cooking, the Americana is the place to go. They have daily specials as well as Italian dishes and sandwiches. It's very casual and most of the customers are regulars. No matter what you order, you will not go wrong.

I should have known something was up when a third of my country ham was missing, presumably to make someone's breakfast biscuit. Even though I had carefully, repeatedly specified home fries deep fried crispy brown, the left-over baked potatoes were served half done. {Do you recall that wonderful flavor of cold old potatoes?} I was actually better off than my...

Went over the weekend- I had hamburger steak and my husband had a steak. While he normally would only order steak at a steakhouse, he opted for this and really enjoyed it. The fried squash is delicious. Will definitely go again
