Great place for lunch.This local place was a good value for Meat and three. Great prices. Fresh food clean facilities lots of parking. The only bad thing which is not bad It is so dark in there the decor needs to be lighter.

Excellent service and nice atmosphere for a restaurant in a smaller town. They're known for their hot bar which is much like meat and three choices but you may also order off the menu. I had catfish off the menu with two sides. Catfish was crispy / sides were good. I'll defintely return.

I wavered between a 3 and a 4 on this one. My family really enjoyed their meals. Mine was just good, not fantastic. Menu was varied and had Vegan items. There definitely is something for everyone. Pasta, burgers, Mexican, sandwiches, etc, etc. I had the pork chop. It was good. Others at the table had the shrimp and catfish. Everybody... More

The Mac and cheese taste like my grandmother's. The cheeseburger and the dusted onion straws where good.

Dust, clean, wash your windows. Get the air conditioning fixed where it will keep the restaurant cool. What in the world did you do to your fried pickle recipe. The pickles in there are so thin you can't taste them all you taste is the breading. I've been a fan but I can't come back to y'all make changes.

My husband and I were out for a drive and got hungry. We asked a local where we should get lunch and were directed to the White Possum. I'm not going to lie, I was really nervous to eat at a restaurant with possum in the name. Thankfully, the possums were all in the decor and not on the menu.... More

A little gem in Smithville Tennessee. The first picture is South of the Border small portion and the second is off the Hot Bar.

Great Meat and two specials...Their menus items give a different food experience compared to the other sit down restaurants in Smithville... They like to take standard American food plates and make their own White Possum version!
