Mildred’s restaurant is located on HWY 53 in Ardmore, Alabama. It’s a small country restaurant with a buffet and the wait staff are always friendly. I love this place, because they have the best fried green tomatoes that I have ever tasted.
I give Mildred’s Restaurant an A+
I recommend trying Catfish Cabin, if you are ever in Athens, Alabama.
Gwen wanted to eat lunch there on Saturday. I admit I was not expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised.
The decor is pretty cool, the staff is super friendly, and the food is very tasty. I had a great time at the restaurant and plan to go back again.
