For those who remember the blue plate special of decades ago, Strawn's is a pleasant throwback to days of delicious comfort food. Their daily specials include tasty home cooked sides. Their fried chicken and chicken fried steak are excellent. Service is fast and the atmosphere...More

Strawns on Kings Highway is a decades old local institution where home-like food abounds. The portions are generous and the staff strives to please. “Famous” for pies made daily though they are getting pricey. Can’t go wrong if your sense of adventure is high.

The new store dose not live up to the reputation of the original location. the new location is hidden in the back of a strip center. The service was far below what I expected.

I'm sorry you do not like our hash browns. They are the Greek style we've served for over 70 years, but we understand they are not for everyone.

We have given out the recipe before to Southern Living, but the secret to our recipe is the people who make them. They've been making them the same from scratch, daily; a tradition passed down for 80 years.

Yes they serve that daily. They have their meal special of the day but you can order anything they have on their menu. It's just good down home cooking. All their pies are delicious.

Strawns Eat Shop specializes in Southern Food, and is best know for their famous ice box pies. We have breakfast all day, including fluffy pancakes and "Football" omlettes. For lunch and dinner try a hamburger, chicken fried steak or a blue plate special. Our famous Ice Box Pies have been featured in Southern Living and on The Food Network. Most of our employees have been here for decades! We are the truly one of the last remaining "mom and pop" run restaurants around! Think Norman Rockwell America!! Stop by and eat with the locals because everyone is family at Strawn's!
