Some of the best home cooked soul food in Montgomery, Alabama. The chicken is delicious, just like everything else that you can order from Martin's. I highly recommend this restaurant.

A coworker's cousin, who lives in Montgomery, recommended Martin's for lunch and we saw why. The place was packed, with people waiting to be seated. We had the fried chicken, which was delicious. My wife said that was the closest to her mom's fried chicken that she ever had. I had the cole slaw, my wife had black-eyed peas, mac... More

Incredible in everyway. I often resort to TripAdvisor when I want to try something new. Martin's did not disappoint! Corn muffins PERFECTLY cooked with the right crunch. A complimentary pully-bone (bc we were first time diners...thank you Theresa!)...and if I have to explain what a pully-bone is then you might want to brush up on your southern cuisine before you...

Visiting another venue in the area, so decided on this restaurant for early dinner. I got fried chicken plate (dark meat) and three veggies. Wife got fried chicken plate (breast) and 3 veggies. Other couple both got fried catfish and veggies. My chicken was luke warm at best, probably left over from lunch. Wife's chicken was hot, but overcooked and... More

Was visiting area for a bowl game and wanted to experience some down home Southern cooking and couldn't made a better choice. Everything was great and you better leave room for the banana pudding.

We've been visiting Martin's for years and it's only gotten better with time! One of the few "old Montgomery" eateries still in action and it never disappoints! If you haven't been you should go and if you have then you know what I mean!

I've been going to Martin's since I was introduced 35 years ago! Despite where I live.....anytime I am near Montgomery I make an excuse to go there. If you like good home southern cooking....this place is my hands down favorite. The fried chicken and cornbread is the best! I am salivating right now thinking about it. Gawd......I love this place!

We had a delicious meal at Martin's, apparently just like others have been doing since it first opened in the original location over 85 years ago. The place is family owned, family run, they serve family dinners, and they make you feel like a part of the family. Warm greetings, friendly sincere conversations, and deliicious home style country cooking all... More

Best cornbread ever! Their meat and three was fabulous and filling. There is a different entree and sides each day. Chocolate merengue pie is out of this world.

Have been there a couple of times. Very good service is fast prices are reasonable. The portions are very large and if you each have an entrée you could be bringing something home. Fried chicken is very good. Save room for dessert.
