The man from California is correct. We enjoyed going with my brother to Rosie s on a recent Friday at lunchtime for fish day. She had lots of fried catfish, fried mullet, cheese grits and coleslaw, plus hush puppies and assorted other meats and veggies if you please. We are southern, so we enjoy this kind of food. All you want to eat buffet for about $7.99 which included our sweet tea. Yum! Not a fancy restaurant, so if that is what you re expecting, you better go someplace else. But clean enough for us.
My first visit to Rosie’s was on a Sunday afternoon and it was quite an experience! As soon as we entered the celestial sounds of the “Might Clouds of Joy” cloud be heard over the din of the half full dining room. After surveying the crowd I knew we’d hit a culinary vein of Southern cooking. Rosie herself welcomes you at the door and you pay upfront. Don’t expect any ambience and the buffet equipment is rather dated but places like this will soon fade away so you’ve got to experience it soon. The crowd was mostly made up of Black church folk with most of the ladies sporting their going to church hats and dresses with their families in tow.
The food was absolutely write home great … I don’t mean haute or fancy just down home cooking. Ribs, fried chicken, collard greens, lima beans, black-eyed peas and corn bread dressing were all outstanding especially if you not well acquainted with these Bible belt staples.
As the afternoon processed several white families entered and obviously were seasoned quests at Rosie’s. Strawberry trifle, sweet sweet red cake and a vanilla wafer, banana custard were the dessert selection and, as everywhere in the South, those huge glasses of sweet ice tea seem to grace every table. Places like this will soon only be memories so you Northern foodies soon make Rosie’s a must do if you’re every in the area. Just to lend credence to this review I let you know that I’ve been a Chef in California for twenty years and enjoyed both the meal and the experience. Rosie’s is only open Thursday through Sunday so try to work your itinerary around Rosie’s for this example of Southern Americana.
