Everything is arranged properly and the store manager is really accommodating. I really love this store and I have been coming back here from quite some time.

When you have a hankering for some good ol' Southern food, just pop on over to Carver's to fill your cravings. I would suggest arriving early because when Ms. Sharon is out, she's out! My favorites are the turkey and dressing, pot roast, and country ham. All of her sides are good, but my favorites are the pineapple & squash casseroles. If you do not save room for dessert, don't worry...all of the desserts are in to-go containers. And don't forget to get a re-fill of sweet tea before you leave.

When someone asks me late at night what I am craving, I always answer the same way - Carver's mac-n-cheese. This place has THE best comfort food ever. I have never had a bad bite in the multiple times I have been there. If you want a good sampling, go for the 4 veggie plate.

TIP: Get there early. It gets very busy, very quickly. And by 1:00 or so, they start running out of the most popular dishes.

Whenever I am craving good southern food, I find that it's always something from Carver's (with apologies to my grandma's wonderful cooking). It is simply the best around, served with love from the owners Sharon and Robert.

It's a mom and pop meat and three restaurant that grew out of an old convenience store type grocery. They have 8 or 9 amazing comfort food entrees every day that rotate in or out like catfish, bbq, fried chicken, potroast, etc. and mouth watering side dishes like broccoli soufflee, rutabagas, yams, turnip greens, etc.
There is a line at the door, but it moves pretty fast. Some things start running out about 1:30 or 2:00, as they try to make things fresh every day. They'll keep your giant lemonade and crushed ice cup full, and you will likely share a big table and maybe a conversation with other regulars as the seating is limited but perfect for the atmosphere. I have mixed emotions about reviewing it here, because I don't want the lines to get longer, but the people who run the restaurant, Mr. and Mrs. Carver, deserve all the success they can get. This is the best comfort food there is, and the atmosphere is the opposite of a sterile chain restaurant.

I have lived in the south my entire life and I am thankful for places like Carvers that keep good recipes alive! The food and atmosphere are great but you will be coming back for the food. If you go, go early because once something on the menu is gone, it is gone.

Pros: Food, Crowd, Location

Cons: Parking, Line to get in

Best comfort food - bar none - in Atlanta and a deal to boot! The fried chicken pieces (whether you choose a Dolly Parton breast or drumsticks) are HUGE! Their sliced tomatoes are the best ever though I don't know how you would imagine this tomato is better than that, it is. The hush puppies are very good, not too greasy but huge and crunchy. The mashed potatoes are so-so but the rest of the sides make up for it. Sweet Potato casserole, broccoli and rice souffle (better than the casserole), collard greens.

Don't go looking for ambiance, it's not here. But, great food, great service with a smile and a great value-this is your place.

Pros: Yummy comfort food at a great value

Cons: Parking, standing in line, wish it was a bit larger

One of the best kept secrets in Atlanta, in my opinion, arrive early (lunch service starts at 11am) to avoid the crush, and to get fresh food. Once they run out of something, it's gone! My favorites are the meatloaf, macaroni and cheese, fried chicken, chicken potpie, and butter beans. Meals range from $7-$10, but it's well worth the money, I usually bring home leftovers. Chat up the gent at the cash register, he's a real friendly guy!

I absolutely hate to even write a review and tell you how great this place is but it is OH-MY-GOD GOOD! Go early because the lines get long around noon. The Mac-n-Cheese is the best I have ever had. Brocc-n-Rice casserole is to die for. And if and when she makes the Chicken n Gravy over biscuits it is an absolute must! If you want to take someone somewhere original and a hole-in-the-wall, this is the only choice other than Ann's Snack Shack.

Pros: mac n cheese, fried catfish or chicken, green beans, etc

Cons: long line after noon

I rode by the place thinking it was an old abandoned grocery store and had no idea about what lied inside till some of my classmates started raving about it. After going there (and continuing to go there), I can say it is one of the best deals in Atlanta. It takes alot of food to fill me up, but with Carver's the standard fair is more than enough. They give you liter cups for sweet tea, the hush puppies are huge, and the food is all around excellent. Hopefully not too many more people will find out about it as the lunch lines are already pretty long.

Located in the hip Howell Station neighborhood, this "hole-in-the-wall" restaurant is a well known "secret" among it's followers. Sharon and her husband dish out massive amounts of home-cooked goodness. It's your typical meat-and-three kind of place . . . pick your meat, pick two veggies, your bread (get the cheese bread), and grab your sweet tea. It's not exactly the most sanitary looking place but dig in anyway. The food is fabulous. I have a neighbor (we live in Howell Station), who drives all the way back here from his Marietta office for lunch about 3 days a week. Watch your wasteline though, it's not exactly the kind of food endorsed by the American Heart Association. When you drive up and see 4 postal trucks, 3 or 4 Ga. Power trucks, etc., you know it's gotta be good.
