“Lunch at Glady's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

A delightful restaurant...."happy" environment with friendly employees, many who have worked there for many years. Cafeteria style selection of freshly made meats/chicken, veggies, and desserts with outstanding green fried tomatoes and fried cornbread pancake and muffins. No pork evident in their veggies. Environment seating very friendly to all ages, including ample room for wheelchairs as well as baby equipment. I will definitely eat there again next time I am in the area.

“Just like grannys cooking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

This place has the best soul food in town hands down. The food is prepared as your grandmother would cook it from the south and is comfort for the soul. All desserts are good and a nice place to sit in after church when you don't feel like cooking or for lunch when not up for the usual hamburgers...

“Surprise for the road weary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2013 via mobile

Driving through Americus on our way to the Jimmy Carter NP from the Andersonville NP. What a great surprise! Line was almost out the door (it was a Sunday at 1:00 so lots of church decked-out folks). I had baked chicken (best I have EVER had) and dressing with fried green tomatoes (again, in the tops I have ever eaten) and cabbage. Hubby had pork chop. I couldn't get a picture because he wolfed it down so quickly! His okra and tomato onion salad was also perfect. The corncakes were a fun addition to a "real" southern meal.

BUT: the highlight of the meal was a dessert called "butter roll." When we asked, the young server couldn't describe it. She said it was, "like a pudding." No.... It was warm, gooey, bread-pudding style heaven!

If you are in the area, you should try it! It is the real southern cooking deal.

“Ecumenical and Southern”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2013

Tracia Tullis, owner, swears her place is the "best home cooked meal in town," which will be true for any respectable church goer in Sunday after Sunday school and pew sitting from 9 till noon. Whether it's the Baptist, Methodist or Episcopal variety -- even if your friends have other notions of morning worship -- you can meet up with them at Gladys' and be righteous together.
You can be righteous about the chicken baked or fried, about the pork chops and the ham; you can be righteous about the dressing and green beans, the sweet potatoes and the collards. You can drink your fill of Church supper sweet tea, or you can have it plain. There will be a line to wait in, but don't fret; it moves fast enough to keep the kids from fussing and slow enough to catch up with what's going on across town.
Gladys' serves cafeteria style 11:00 - 3:00 PM Monday through Friday and gives you an extra hour on Sunday, serving till 4:00 PM. Saturday you're on your own -- that's the crew's day of rest before they feed the faithful Saints that march in like they’re ready for the rapture. Yes, the food is that good and it's good that Tracia and crew will do the cooking for momma on Sunday.

“Great Soul Food!”

Great southern soul food at a very reasonable price! Go early on Sunday or there will be a long wait line. The Fried Green Tomatoes were killer!!
