We were so excited about going to lunch at the Whistle Stop Cafe, but we're extremely dissapointed after waiting 2 hours for a terrible meal. First of all, we don't mind the wait, however, we do mind the hostess seating friends before customers already on...More

A friend and I had always wanted to see if the Fried Green Tomatoes were going to be as good as we were hoping. What a nice surprise, delicious! It was worth the 1 1/2 hour wait, we just looked around town. We ordered our...More

What's not to love? The whole town is alive set. You can eat fried green tomatoes and Bennett barbeque!!!!!! All the food was very good. Lots of it. Decent prices (maybe little inflated but there's the nostalgia factor). The desserts are overpriced for what you...More

Don't get me wrong-it was a fun stop on our way to the airport after our Georgia vacation. The place was very busy, of course, and our server was great. The fried green tomatoes were so good, and we enjoyed just being there. What we...More

Interesting. We decided to go to this place because of the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes". Decor was like the move.

This is where the film "Fried Green Tomatoes" was made. The town is very small, but quaint. The BBQ is cooked over a pit outback, just like in the movie, over pecan wood, The BBQ was the BEST I have ever eaten! The sweet potatoe fries sticks were done to perfection. But the best thing was something that I had never had before, Pecan Dumpling. It has replaced Carnegie Deli cheesecake as my favorite dessert! If you like the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes" go to the Whisltle Stop Cafe and have some Fried Green Tomaoes, BBQ, sweet potatoe fires and pecan dumpling and remember a slower, quieter time and enjoy!
