A friend and I are going to dinner next week and can't decide which one is better....
Really I want to know which place has better "overall" southern food. To clarify, it would be the Peachtree Buffet (not the restaurant) and the Strouds Northland (the only location left).
I was pretty set on strouds earlier and narrowed my choices to either one of two options: I was thinking about getting the fried pork chops or the Chicken Fried steak with the cottage fries, gravy and chix noodle soup (heard that this alone is worth the trip) which perhaps a fried thigh on the side just so I wont walk away from strouds not having eaten some of their world famous chicken. But then I started hearing this insidious little rumor that *gasp* Strouds chicken isnt really all that great--its kinda a plain and unseasoned. Peachtree has been mentioned several times but nobody I know actually has eaten there...lol just friends of friends or whatever. Is the chicken and pork chops all that great? What about the neckbones or the sides? I havent been to strouds since I was like 10, so honestly, i really dont remember the quality of their food either--just that it looked huge to my small eyes and tiny tummy. BTW, i do LOVE cinnamon rolls, but strouds doesnt look much like cinnamon rolls to me, more like cinnamon sugar yeast rolls. Bread pudding and cobbler from peachtree sounds a little more "upscale" However, I am a little worried about this being a "buffet" Is the food still good? Is it worth it?
Any feedback would be great! My tastebuds are counting on you!
