Minnie's Uptown Cafe is nothing special as far as decor but the food is good southern cooking so who needs snazzy design. Great fried chicken and numerous veggies from which to choose at a low price makes this a hit for business people and tourists...More

Very pleasant staff and the food is good. Better get there early though. Parking is an issue. Can't beat the portions and the taste.
