Big Ed's City Market Restaurant Review

: Big Ed’s exuberant dining room, festooned with artifacts of Southern farm culture from antique plows to vintage tobacco tins, sets the stage for authentic old-fashioned Southern country fare. The breakfast menu, offered until the eatery closes at 2 p.m., includes enormous pancakes with molasses, the fluffiest imaginable biscuits with milk or red-eye gravy, sausages and country ham with buttered grits, and even brains and eggs. For lunch, you might choose such traditional dishes as fried chicken, chicken and dumplings, and country-fried steak, each served with your choice of two vegetables which, depending on the season, might include yellow squash, black-eyed peas, butter beans and collard greens. Fresh fruit cobblers are classics of the genre and the meringue-topped banana pudding is the old-South personified. Big Ed serves no alcohol, but you can have a bottomless glass of Carolina sweet tea.
