My sisters and I eat at Martin's whenever we visit Alabama. We always get the fried chicken which is the best! You have to save room for the pie! The coconut creme is my favorite but all are delicious and the portions are huge!

The chicken, cornbread muffins, and pie are still excellent. However, the vegetables have suffered over the years. You can tell they are not fresh but still taste ok. I think my issue is that I remember how good it was 20 years ago. Don't get...More

I doubt this place can be beat for the price! The selection was somewhat limited in terms of meats available (fish would have been nice), but the roast beef was delicious and amazingly tender. The sides make the meal -- turnip greens were delicious, and...More

Our Red Hat ladies ate lunch here today. The food was awesome especially the fried chicken, which they are known for. I had the turnip greens, macaroni & cheese (so creamy & rich) and cucumber salad plus corn muffins. So delicious every bite. But the...More

I grew up in Montgomery and have been eating at Martin's for about 55 years. It has been at the same location with the same decor for as long as I can remember. Montgomery has changed a lot in the last half-century, but Martin's never...More
