Attended a conference in downtown Columbus. We were told of a local diner within walking distance. What a delight... good southern home cooking. Hope to return soon!

The reviews are right on: the food is delicious and the people are wonderful. It is a simple and effective system. The fried chicken was, without a doubt, the best I've ever had! Collards were delicious, I'd never had that before. The fried fish was not greasy at all. The homemade tartar sauce was delicious. The cream corn: hmmmmm. I'm... More

We followed other trip advisor's reviews and WeWereNotDisappointed!!! There is nothing like a good southern "meat and three" and Minnie's can easily set the standard. Your first temptation as you pick up your tray is the counter top line up of slices of cakes. I'm not really a cake fan but I could have started with one of each. Not... More

We've been to minnies many times since my husband has been stationed here. We always leave full and happy. The atmosphere and people are the best.

You can't go wrong with anything here. My favorite is the fried pork chops on Wednesdays! But all food is delicious and you must try a slice of cake. All of the employees here have that Southern charm sure to put a smile on your face.

Ok, want some veggies and good chicken? Minnie's is right on time. Great place to meet a client or just take the wife for a "not fast food" lunch!

I came here to get a takeout plate for lunch. The food is excellent! There's so much variety that it is hard to choose. It all looks so good and the fried fish was delicious! I also had the macaroni and cheese and dressing. All very good!

If you are looking for no frills and great food you found it. Served cafeteria style there were 5 meats and about ten sides to choose from, plus a handful of desserts. The fried chicken and grouper were the best I've ever had. All of the sides were excellent too and you could tell they were all homemade and served... More

Hurricane Matthew caused us to change our travel plans which ended up with us taking a detour through Columbus. Good thing or we would never have found Mimmie's Uptown Restaurant. It appears to have been two store fronts pieced together in an old building just south of Downtown. You walk into the right side and immediately walk over to the... More

I liked the variety of side items and single serving desserts. Bring cash because they don't except plastic ....well worth it.
