THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Matthews Cafeteria Restaurant Review

: This location is substantially spiffier than the original, as it’s located in a former chain-steakhouse structure. The menu is pretty much as the Tucker location, except dinner on Saturday night features catfish, which isn’t served at the Tucker location at all. Otherwise, it’s the same vintage Southern comfort food, served cafĂ©teria style, with vegetables cooked since dawn. The menu rotates every day but look for barbecue ribs, chicken livers, Salisbury steak, fried chicken, pork loin, salmon croquettes, meatloaf, pot roast and chicken; dumplings appear regularly. Turnip greens, sweet potato soufflĂ© and fried okra are classics, while the peas and beans are cooked without salt pork or meat stock. Take-out is available at this location. The other location is at 2299 Main St., at Lawrenceville Hwy., Tucker, 770-491-9577.
