Anyone wanting good food at a good, locally owned and operated restaurant, this is the place. The Choice has been around a long time, and that's because you get great service, the food is good, the tea is great, and it's a peaceful place to relax and eat. And, it's affordable as well.

My family has always been fans of a nearby meat and 3 but we decided to give The Choice a try after some changes at the other restaurant. We all ordered chicken and the boneless fried breast was so good. The vegetables were very good...we all loved the sweet potatoes with pecans on top. Each of us ordered Banana Pudding... More

The menu choices were different each day of the week and the format allowed mixing and matching numerous combinations of meat and or vegetables. It had been a while since I had eaten at a meat and three and liked having control over the meal size and price. I had the meatloaf, mac-n-cheese, coleslaw and cornbread. It was all very... More

We stopped for a late lunch as we were driving through town on vacation. The food was fast and hot! The burgers were delicious and HUGE! Would definitely come by again. We parked behind the restaurant. You can go in from the back but I suggest going in thru the front just to see the quaint town.

The service is always great. The food is good home cooking and seasoned just right. The staff is friendly and very attentive. We used to live in Gadsden and we go back each year on our anniversary. We have never been disappointed with the food or the service. If you like southern home cooking, this is the place!

The restaurant advertises home cooking, but we saw little of that with our meals. Everything was packaged and average to below-average. Omelet was okay but lunch was instant potatoes and salty gravy and skimpy portions.

In Gadsden on vacation and sometimes you want good home cooked food. Here is where you go. I ordered the hamburger steak, sweet potato casserole, pinto beans and a roll. The hamburger steak was good. Maybe a little dry but not bad. The sweet potatoes were outstanding. Pinto beans were good as well. I would go back just for the... More
