My family LOVES Miss Thelma's. We would eat there every week if not for the calories. Authentic comfort food that makes every bite a pleasure. The fried chicken is crispy, salty, juicy and never greasy or dry. The meaty BBQ ribs just fall off the bone with the best tangy-sweet sauce I've ever had. The collard greens and string beans...

The food was perfectly cooked and the cornbread nice and moist!! I am a big vegetable person and the okra and black eyed peas were cooked just right! We had a long conversation with the owner who was very nice and accommodating.

I had fried whiting, with collards and dirty rice, my husband had fried pork chops with mac and cheese. Cornbread comes with the meal (we asked for a got seconds - worth the extra exercise we...

A friend and I were traveling back from NYC to Boston, and we made a pit stop in Bridgeport. We saw Miss Thelma's place and decided to give it a try. We were rewarded with a fantastic lunch. The fried catfish was very good. But, I would have been content if I had just eaten the sides. I would go... More

As local resturants go, this is a hidden gem. Located directly across the street from the Court house in downtown Bridgeport. This is a definite must if you're in the area and looking for a bit of southern style soul food. Everything from Fried Chicken, Collard Greens, Candied Yams, Macaroni and Cheese is delcious! Service is quick (unless you go... More
