Matthews Cafeteria

images Matthews Cafeteria is in Tucker, Georgia. This is about 20 minutes away from me. It is a true cafeteria, just trays and trays of hot food.Unknown

The desserts are the first thing you encounter. I pass them up ready for true comfort food. Their fried chicken is very good, but this day I was interested in meatloaf.


This looks burnt, but it wasn’t. It was exactly what I yearned for, that scrumptious warm loaf of meat goodness, tastes like your grandmother made it. One side was mashed potatoes. They just made the meat loaf so much better. Second side was lima beans. I love lima beans!


I usually do not get the roll, but it was the last carb necessary for the best comfort lunch ever. To finish it off, sweet tea. Come on, you know you are craving this right now.

Loyal Q and Brew

I had to go to East Cobb today to deliver Easter Baskets to my nieces. On the way to their home I noticed a new restaurant, called Loyal Q and Brew. I thought I should give it a try, I do love some BBQ.


It was a little late for lunch, about 1:40, but they were open and it was opening day in baseball and they had the tvs for it!


No, there weren’t many people in there, but it was really clean. I liked the menu, or not, everything sounded so good. IMG_0143

I got the smoked turkey platter with collard greens and macaroni and cheese. IMG_0146

The smoked turkey was very good, the greens were really good. I did not think I would like the macaroni and cheese, but, it was gooey ooey great. They had this picked slaw that was out of this world great. I would love to go back and try some other things. Their brisket is probably great. Well worth the trip out there.


ThrowBack Thursday


Every year all of the fam would get together at the beach for a long weekend. Flagler Beach! This year we went horseback riding. This is my sister, Ellyn. I was very proud of her because she was very scared to get on the horse. She did great. We all did! It was so fun.   I can’t believe it was 5 years ago. They were great weekends!
