Instant mashed potatoes and instant gravy - really?? Green beans delicious. Fried chicken awesome. Cornbread, great taste, but dry. Homemade pies have a commercial crust. Country fried steak and gravy was really more like a hamburger steak and gravy, not fried. Overall okay, but disappointing.

My sisters and I eat at Martin's whenever we visit Alabama. We always get the fried chicken which is the best! You have to save room for the pie! The coconut creme is my favorite but all are delicious and the portions are huge!

The chicken, cornbread muffins, and pie are still excellent. However, the vegetables have suffered over the years. You can tell they are not fresh but still taste ok. I think my issue is that I remember how good it was 20 years ago. Don't get...More
