Sisters Restaurant — A roadside attraction


Energy don’t rely once you’re on trip, proper? I hope not as a result of my husband and I pigged out — not as soon as however twice — at Sister’s Restaurant on U.S. Freeway 231 S.  in Troy, Alabama whereas we have been on our strategy to Tupelo, Miss.

The old school,  buffet, loaded with Southern consolation meals, has been an attraction since sisters Pat Rogers and Geraldine Umbehagen opened the place in 1997.

My husband had been right here years in the past whereas touring and was thrilled to trace it down once more. We arrived early and there was already a line ready outdoors the door when Sisters was able to open at 11. A lady forward of us stated she labored there however nonetheless wished to eat there on her time without work. That’s a superb signal. She additionally advised us the car parking zone could be full by midday. It was.

Everytime you get there, it’s definitely worth the wait.

We simply tried a smidgeon of most the whole lot however we piled on fried hen, fried catfish, pork chops, salisbury steak, collard greens, mashed potatoes, candy potato casserole, inexperienced beans casserole, mac ‘n cheese, hush puppies and potato salad from the salad bar space.

And there have been the desserts — peach cobbler, banana pudding, bread pudding and many muffins. The menu modifications barely every day however you’re sure to seek out your favorites.

My husband was in hog heaven. He raved concerning the pork chops, tender as a rustic love track, and barely spoke whereas devouring the banana pudding and peach cobbler

I don’t eat many buffets however regionally I like Olean’s Cafe and I hear nice issues about O’Neal’s Nation Buffet in Thomasville. However for those who’re ever within the space, add Sisters to your GPS. It’s definitely worth the drive! (Put on a unfastened pair of pants).
