The restaurant is cafeteria style, which must be an Alabama thing. (not knocking it, just different). I have eaten here several times over the last few months. The food is average to good depending on the day of the week. Portion size is equal to the cost. A meat & 2 with your choice of bread with water to drink... More

Their meat and three is a great deal. By far, they have the best squash casserole, fried chicken, banana pudding, Mexican cornbread in Birmingham. I eat there at least twice per month.

The menu consist of southern style food but everything our family ate was processed and tasteless and not up to standards. The yams were gummy and full of cornstarch. The mac and cheese was plain. the desserts were worst than store bought. The chicken fried steak was salty. there were seven of us and non of us enjoyed our meal.... More

I've dined here twice within the last three weeks for lunch during business trips. They have lots of meat and three choices. You go through a line and get food quickly. Then you seat yourself. Waitresses will bring you water or tea and give you a ticket. You pay on the way out. The food is good. It's reasonably priced.

This place has been serving consistently good meat and 3 meals for over 3 decades. Nothing fancy, but really good "southern" food served by people who care about their customers. Very affordable.

Every time I pass through Birmingham, I stop for fried chicken, mac & cheese, and collard greens. It's hard to find a "fix" equivalent to this most anywhere else!

Hands down, the best friend green tomatoes in Bham! They are set apart by using panko vs the traditional cornmeal and there is ZERO comparison - sorry Whistle Stop! Can't beat the convenience of the drive-thru anytime of the day and cafeteria style dining. Selections are changed daily to the regular menu and always fresh. Best fresh friend catfish and... More

My husband and I recently had dinner from this restaurant. I order by drive-thru and we are usually very pleased with the service. However, recently, we had an issue. After I had gotten the food home and we prepared to eat, we discovered the order was incorrect. I drove back to the restaurant and asked for the manager. The manager... More

I've visited the Paw Paw Patch at least a dozen times, always with a group of 3 - 5. The fare is traditional Southern with a myriad of choices in a typical meat and three cafeteria setting. The prices are very reasonable and the table service after you grab a seat at a table is outstanding. The fried chicken and... More

My sister took my family here when we visited. It is cafeteria style, which I was not expecting, and I didn't love that. I hate the pressure of having a line of people behind me, trying to figure out the menu quickly. I had a piece of chocolate pie, fried chicken, fried green tomatoes, mashed potatoes, and sweet tea. The... More
