My grandsons and I were visiting Plains and had lunch here. The boys are gluten free. It is not unusual for them to order a hot dog or hamburger without a bun. In Atlanta when they order this way it frequently causes the servers great confusion and frustration as to how to order something without a bun! Well, here we... More

When we entered the Old Bank Cafe, we were greeted by a young lady asking us to try the fried peanuts, and some of the fresh made peanut butter ice cream. Of course we tried both. The fried peanuts were really very good, we bought a big bag to take in the camper. We tried a sample of the ice... More

Nice outside seating area, great service. Average sandwiches, but the fried green beans were awesome, nice, light, crispy coating. Had never had them before, but would definitely recommend.

It's really the Buffalo, not the Old Bank Cafe. Very simple fare but a large menu. I had the pimento cheese sandwich. FYI: "toasted" means the bread was toasted. It doesn't mean grilled. Service can be slow. It's located next to the peanut store.

We went to Plains for the Peanut Festival. Although the restaurant was very crowded during this time, the food came quickly and had a great taste. The room is very small, but does have an outdoor seating area if not too hot. The table service was quick and efficient. The menu is limited to foods like hamburgers, sandwiches, fries, etc....

Trip advisor lists the address as Moon St. It is on Main St. Looks like a quaint place. Unfortunately is was closed for Labor Day weekend when we stopped hoping to have lunch there.

Made a side trip to plains from I-75 in way back from eastern Florida. Have always wanted to visit as I always have been a Carter fan. Very tasty lunch for my daughters and I. Nicely decorated restaurant, quick service and friendly employees, one of whom also works in the political paraphernalia shop next door. I noticed that the restaurant... More

Server took orders from several tables who arrived after my table. His excuse was he did not notice us. A table with five people you can't see but don't have a problem seeing table with two people??? It should be noted there is only about 7 tables present. People bringing drinks and refills were outstanding and did a great job... More

The open faced cheeseburger with gravy was a local specialty worth trying. The old bank building with windows on main street offered a nice, casual setting.

Delicious, simple, home cooked food with lots of love, and no pretense. Plains memorabilia surrounds as you sit amongst friendly townspeople and experience what life in Plains is really like. I had a long conversation with someone who used to work for Jimmy Carter back when he ran the peanut company -- now that's an experience money just can't buy.
