Thelma's is one of the few places in-town to find rutabagas, collard greens, pinto beans and a variety of other southern favorites, done right. The selection varies day to day. Not having a hunk of fatback makes it even better.

The entrees also vary in southern fare (i.e. fried fish, fried chicken, baked smothered chicken, ribs, pork chops, etc.)

Expect spend about $10 - $12 for a meat, two veggies and a beverage.

On hot days, it's inevitable that the AC will be on the fritz. Depeding on which family member is serving at the time, will dictate how friendly the service will be.

Cast iron Skillets, homemade everything, a real kitchen in the back with family members doing the work. this place is so good that all of the Atlanta congress knows about it. Get there right at 11:00 am for the fresh fried chicken at good prices.

Many years back, we were major fan's of Thelma's Kitchen, over on Marietta St. Now she has moved to Auburn Ave. And she has moved to sacred ground, for many of us native Atlantan's. As a kid I would sneak over to the Auburn Ave. Rib Shack, for a slab of heaven. Now Thelma has taken over the old location, and that's a hard act to follow. We don't know if it's just time for her to retire, or the soul has just gone away. The fried chicken, mac n' cheese, and greens are just not the same. Soul food comes from the soul, but it's just not at this location on Auburn Ave.

Pros: Legendary Location!

Cons: Food Lacks Tasty Soul!
