Sissy opened up especially for our family today, after we sadly said good-bye to one of our elders... The food was exceptional, as always, and the place was the perfect tribute to my aunt (growing up and raising her family in a farm). For anyone looking for an authentic country home cooked meal, Sissy's is not to be missed. A+... More

We met old friends and their families (12 of us) for dinner. The place is adorable as are the owner and staff. All of our dinners came out at the same time and all were delicious. It may be a bit off the beaten path, but well worth the effort.

This place is definitely worth going out of the way for. We ordered 2 meals to go and everything was great. The catfish was tasty and the country fried steak tender. Also the staff and owner was very friendly.

My husband and I stopped for lunch at Sissy's as we were passing through Cameron thanks to the many positive reviews we read. We ordered the fried catfish and chicken fried steak to split. I'm not a huge catfish fan, but after reading the reviews, I had to give it a try. It was hands down the best catfish I've... More

Description
This is a family style restaurant with country cooking at its best. Everything cooked like grandma's house. Homemade desserts, homemade rolls or cornbread when available. Only 3 miles outside of Cameron. Worth the trip off the beaten path to come have a Homestyle country meal at a reasonable price. Chicken fried steak is one of our most requested.
