Was visiting area for a bowl game and wanted to experience some down home Southern cooking and couldn't made a better choice. Everything was great and you better leave room for the banana pudding.

We've been visiting Martin's for years and it's only gotten better with time! One of the few "old Montgomery" eateries still in action and it never disappoints! If you haven't been you should go and if you have then you know what I mean!

I've been going to Martin's since I was introduced 35 years ago! Despite where I live.....anytime I am near Montgomery I make an excuse to go there. If you like good home southern cooking....this place is my hands down favorite. The fried chicken and cornbread is the best! I am salivating right now thinking about it. Gawd......I love this place!

We had a delicious meal at Martin's, apparently just like others have been doing since it first opened in the original location over 85 years ago. The place is family owned, family run, they serve family dinners, and they make you feel like a part of the family. Warm greetings, friendly sincere conversations, and deliicious home style country cooking all... More

Best cornbread ever! Their meat and three was fabulous and filling. There is a different entree and sides each day. Chocolate merengue pie is out of this world.

Have been there a couple of times. Very good service is fast prices are reasonable. The portions are very large and if you each have an entrée you could be bringing something home. Fried chicken is very good. Save room for dessert.

Came for lunch; seated quickly. All locals which made the place interesting. Fried chicken was tasty, sides were not as good. We liked the fried green tomatoes and okra with corn. Cucumber salad tasted and looked old, macaroni and collards were awful, cole slaw as OK. Lemonade tasted artificial. Portions are large. We were not offered any desert so I... More

Easy to get to from the interstate and located at end of a shopping center for parking is easy. Down home country cooking. You better be hungry but, the cooked vegetables were very bland. The fried chicken was absolutely delicious! I noticed quite a few people taking left-overs home; just as I did. We should have split a meal. Couldn't... More

The service was excellent and several of the meat dishes were good. The fried chicken was very good and the grilled pork shop was good. The side dishes were average at best. The pie that they were proud of was also average at best.

Martins is definitely not for everyone, It is a small meat & 3 from the old days. But it has the best fried Chicken anywhere!! The staff is friendly and the portions are huge. For around $10 with sweet tea included your plate is enough for 2 meals.
