Speaking of collard greens, Mimi’s serves a collard green dip appetizer for a new-to-me take on the veggie. We didn’t get a chance to try it, but it’s first on my list to taste the next time we visit.
Another must-try menu item for us was the fried chicken entrée. It came with two sides too, so we opted for the fried green beans and the sweet potatoes. Let me tell you, this fried chicken warmed my heart. The meat was perfectly cooked and supremely juicy, and that salty, crunchy, crumbling skin was such a treat.
For dessert, we all fought over (I mean... shared) a slice of the cherry pie. It was the ooey-gooey sweetness we craved after a very, very fried dinner. There are other sweets on the dessert menu here too, like brownies, cheesecake and chocolate chip cookies.
Although we opted for so much fried goodness on our visit, there are plenty of non-fried items on the menu here too.
For example, the double cheeseburger with bacon looked delish, and you can also get a few other options like meatloaf, prime rib, spaghetti topped with meat sauce or hearty bowls of brown beans with a side of potatoes and a slice of that delicious cornbread. But honestly, I know when I come back it’ll be for another plate of that fried catfish. I’m already dreaming about it.
