Great place to call in an order and pick it up. Food is good and pricing is not bad at all. Definitely coming back

Probably the best french fries I've had in awhile! Large cut steak fries and not too crunchy. Grilled cheese was good and cobbler was just like mom made.

The blue plate serves a great breakfast, we enjoyed the biscuits and gravy, French toast, pancakes, and bacon. The best thing was the cheesy browns! They were delicious.

I came here for a business lunch to discuss a few things and we gave up after a short time. The food is OK, but expensive for the portion sizes. We were in the middle of the room and had to constantly adjust our chairs to let people by... I'm sure this is a great place for a nice meal... More

Very good for a meat and three. Offers different meats different days of the week. I went and got chicken fried steak, butter beans, Mac and cheese, and hash brown casserole. The sides were the best!!

I really enjoyed my breakfast here. Fast and friendly service. The food was served fresh and hot. Great biscuits and gravy! I'm not sure when the big rush hits. I was in around 7:00 AM and while it was busy, there were tables and counter space available.

I really wanted to love the Blue Plate. However, the food can only be described as having little or no flavor. It would remind you of what school cafeterias produced thirty years ago. Fried chicken was the best of what I ordered. Macaroni and cheese (sauce) was terrible. Green beans had to be out of a can. Even the cornbread,... More

Meat and 3 (sides) plenty of all. Lunch is really busy. Get there early. Enjoy. Really no downside. If there was, the place would t be so packed.

I moved here over 25 years ago because of "Southern Hospitality". Dar'lin and Honey were still in fashion here. The Blue Plater is as you would imagine, hugs and smiles. If you have been here, it's what you remember, if your new it's what you missed. Great food, large portions and always the way you want it with a smile.... More
