Go there for lunch, doesn't matter the day. If you're looking for southern food, best in Columbus IMHO. Don't come here looking for low calorie options, but wear sweatpants, you WILL eat too much.

We arrive after the lunch hour rush and we were treated to some very good southern fried chicken with some collard greens and yams.........tasty to say the least. We also opted for the some extremely tasty cake....WOW......

Minnie's Uptown Cafe is nothing special as far as decor but the food is good southern cooking so who needs snazzy design. Great fried chicken and numerous veggies from which to choose at a low price makes this a hit for business people and tourists...More

Good food basic meat, veggies, rice/potatoes! Great Tea. Sometimes the veggies are really salty. Depending on the day the fried chicken is either spicy or pickely.

Very pleasant staff and the food is good. Better get there early though. Parking is an issue. Can't beat the portions and the taste.

They usually will post what they are serving that day on their Facebook page. Their food changes on a daily basis. If you search for "Minnie's Uptown Restaurant" it should pop up.
