We love this place. We love the people! We travel in that direction about once a year. We will go out of our way in travels to make sure we visit them at least once on our visit. PRICED VERY FAIRLY! You will be amazed at the quality and amount of food you get for the price they charge. It... More

While Wendell does breakfast and lunch everyday all week long, (doesn't do dinner any day) and both are very good, his lunch on Sunday is the best. You order your meat and veggies, and they serve you, and if you want seconds of something, you just ask and they bring it to you. Love it. Good southern cooking. They have... More

Ok, sometimes I like to go redneck for breakfast. This includes grits, gravy, chicken biscuits, country ham, you name it. And I just can't get this fix in some citified place. When I get this way I head to Wendell's. The food gives me that satisfied smile. The friendly waitresses really set a good mood. And by this time they... More

We love to eat lunch at Wendell's, especially on Sunday's after church. The special includes one meat, 2 vegetables, bread, a drink and dessert for $6-7. Wendell always comes into the dining room to greet customers, and he is a very nice host.

They are up state 75 closer to Helen. This place is usually packed and when you get served you will know why. Sometimes they are short staffed and this is NOT a fast food joint. Remember you are in the south and all things southern take a little extra time. Sweet Tea anyone? Slow brewed, if you get my drift.

The place the locals go! Large portioned and fantastically cooked breakfast that leaves you full just looking at your plate. We have made Wendell's our place to eat to start our day. The owner, Wendell, chats with his guests when not in the back working his magic. Just outside of Helen towards Cleveland tucked away in the first gas station... More

The food was just not even good enough to be called average. My wife had French toast--it was dry and tasteless. I had fried potatoes and two eggs over medium. While that combo is not very exciting usually, in this case it was lacking in any flavor. Service was slow. Surroundings--don't go for the environment, if you go. I think... More

Excellent country cooking. Food was good and plentiful. Service was way beyond expectations. Able to accommodate. Large groups.

I found a brochure for this place in our cabin and decided to try it out for breakfast. Great place! Awesome service! Great food! Best sausages I have ever tried! Love these little local places.
