Daddy's Country Kitchen - Acworth, Georgia

Daddy's Country Kitchen is a locals place that has been dishing up Southern classic cooking for a little over 30 years. Walking into Daddy's is like walking into the middle of a conversation between old friends. As far as I could tell, that was exactly what was happening. It seemed to me that everyone in the place knew one another. Kids and grandkids were asked after, school accomplishments were shared and neighbors caught up.

For all of that cross chat and familiarity there are seemingly no strangers at Daddy's. If there are it won't be for long. The Dining Companion and I were greeted warmly and made to feel welcome.

Daddy's offers a buffet of down home goodness and also has a menu for those who might want a burger or a club salad. We were there for the buffet. I was there for the fried chicken specifically. It didn't disappoint.

Peach Cobbler and Fried Chicken

Stuffed Peppers and Hamburger Steaks in Gravy

Beets, Seafood Salad, Potato Salad, Cole Slaw and a Garden Salad
Sauteed Cabbage, Fried Okra, Spaghetti(!), Green Beans and Au gratin Potatoes
All of the food was fresh and delicious. The fried chicken was just what I was looking for. One item not shown above was the homemade dressing (like stuffing but not). One of the best things I had.

Last but not least, homemade fruit cobbler. (Peach and apple?) There was no way I was leaving without trying it. Light biscuit topping with a glaze of crunchy sugar on top. Perfection.

Eating at Daddy's Country Kitchen reminded me of dinner at grandma's house in the best possible way. From the warmth of friends greeting each other, to the down home cooking, Daddy's is a nice place to pass some time.

If you find yourself traveling in the South be sure to check out places like Daddy's. A little off the beaten path but well worth seeking out. You won't be a stranger for long.

Happy travels!
