For a fairly quick, simple meal, this place is ok. Lots of fried choices. The catfish was very good.

Went with friends and family to the Blue Plate Cafe. They were out of a lot of food for a 7pm Saturday night dinner. I wasn't impressed by the way the food tasted.

This place is more in the Heart of Huntsville. It's one of the City's oldest restaurants. The food was ok. It wasn't really something I'd seek out tho'. The prices were good.

This is just an absolute enjoyable place to stop for a meal. The breakfast is terrific, home made biscuits are sure not out of a can here! The hosts and servers are smiling and eager. There is nothing not to like about being here.

I am not sure but all the food is freshly done and served right away so I sincerely doubt it.
