Amy Ruth's Report

Eva L. | Jul 30, 2002 01:14 PM

Thanks for all Chowhounds who provided input to my earlier request. We arived at Amy Ruth's around 5:15pm Sunday and had about a 20 minute wait outside. Oh boy was it hot, unfortunately not too much cooler indoors. The heat in there was terrible especially for a restaurant. Even McDonald's is air conditioned.

Ok now for food, we had the ribs with mac and cheese, fried okra, honey fried chicken with collard greens and mac and cheese. The skin on the chicken was better than the chicken. Oh, so worth all that cholesterol and fat. Wasn't crazy about their mac and cheese and was disappointed with that. Okra was great. Everything was very spiced and a little too strong for me, but good. The mango whipped drink I had was great, especially given the temperature of the restaurant. Dessert was peach cobbler and banana cream pudding. Both of which we could have passed on.

I'm wondering if we would have been better off with one of the other alternatives.
