Morrison's Restaurant, Gresham

If you can tear yourselves away from Johnson's down the street, you might give this humble steam-table place a spin. Full of photos of happy patrons, this came off cheerfully as a wholesome, meat-and-sides family place. I went with a five-sides deal (a lot of food for $5.95, it is not on the menu, per se, but I asked).

Some of the sides looked and tasted of the can, but a few were very good: the peppery greens with smoked turkey, the cabbage and the stocky red beans and rice were all very good. The corn muffins were, well, not up to scratch.

Pre-packaged desserts in the cooler, didn't try any.

Sunday may actually be the day to go. They roll out a whole different menu of meats (including oxtail and cornish hens) and sides (Mississippi chili, jambalaya, black eyed peas, etc.), and even a special Sun-only dessert (bread pudding).

Very nice folks operating the place too.

So southern I felt like smoking a Winston afterwards.
