Hattie's Restaurant Review

: Walking into Hattie’s, you may experience a moment’s confusion as you wonder if you’ve somehow been transported to antebellum Charleston, rather than the Bishop Arts neighborhood of Dallas. Vintage tile floors, white tablecloths and high tin ceilings evoke an older, gentler time when people still sat down at 6 o’clock for an unhurried Sunday dinner on mother’s best china. Hattie’s may feel laid-back and easy, but there is nothing lackadaisical about the food, whether you’re savoring the signature shrimp and grits or the juicy bacon-wrapped meatloaf covered with mushroom gravy. Speaking of Southern delicacies, the fried green tomatoes---crisp little discs of tart tomatoes, served piping hot---are things of beauty. You owe it to yourself to dip a fork in a mound of the four-cheddar mac ‘n’ cheese with no regard for calories. And who wouldn’t want to polish off the meal with warm pecan pie à la mode or banana pudding? Always mannerly but never prim, Hattie’s gives strong motivation to always say “please” and “thank you.”
