Tommy Moore's Cafe & Deli Restaurant Review

: Owner Tommy Moore has outfitted his eponymous café with museum-worthy photos and artifacts underscoring the African-American history of its Eastside location, and the plates could be on display as well. The experiment in evening dining might have ended, but lunch still shines with Southern (not “soul” he says) classics such as red beans and rice, baked chicken and cornbread dressing, baked or fried catfish, cinnamon-laced sweet potatoes, and stewed cabbage with ham hock. Daily specials focus on local stalwarts with the likes of “flame-broiled” hamburger steak --- all at economy-friendly prices. Banana pudding is among desserts. Breakfast boasts eggs with ham steak or pork chops, grits, hash browns and more in true Southern style. Get your fix of biscuits with sausage gravy here before they disappear from the country’s culinary pantheon. Or go for the eggs smothered in house-made chili --- “only at Tommy Moore’s.”
