As a native Southerner, I don't believe I've found a restaurant more like the places back home (Texas/Memphis/New Orleans) that could compare better than Nellie's.
Breakfast served 'til around 4:00pm every day.
Items on the menu include oxtails, spare ribs, real Texas-style BBQ beef ribs, catfish and your usual delcious home-style soul food side dishes. Dr. Pepper is served in the bottle (the ONLY way to drink it) and they have a very special dessert by request called ""Possum Pie"".
The owner, J. J. Jackson always has a friendly word or an interesting story and makes you feel like part of the family the moment you walk through the door.
If you expect high-brow Southern cuisine, fast service, an accurate order and are short on time, Nellie's is not for you. A relaxed attitude and an appreciation for the simple things is key.
Pros: authentic, friendly, inexpensive
Cons: slow service, limited seating
