Last night we decided to go to Hoovers for diner. This is one of our favorite restaurants but one we only seem to go to when we have company in town. They have fabulous "soul food." For dinner I always get the chicken fried steak (I guess it is a good thing we only go occasionally), but last night I actually decided to have a smoked chicken ceaser salad. It was really good but I missed the chicken fried steak. We realized when paying that they have a special right now - Monday through Friday, 4 to 6 pm, kids eat free and adult entrees are half price! So not only did we have a great dinner, we fed 5 adults and 2 kids for $35 before tip! The special runs through the end of April (I think). And of course eating dinner before six is not hard for us to do since the kids need to be in bed by 7:30 at the latest.

When we were leaving we noticed that on Saturday and Sunday they have half price breakfast between 8 and 10 am. So this morning we decided to check it out.

Yes I was a little embarrassed to be going back to the same restaurant a mere 14 hours later but their food is so good and you just can't beat the price right now! Let me just say the breakfast was FABULOUS! I ordered the eggs with chicken fried steak with home fries and a biscuit. Michael had the migas with cheese grits, Cici and Papa both had a traditional breakfast platter with eggs, sausage, grits, toast/biscuit. Rehm had pancakes and bacon and Charlotte ate off of everyone's plates. I tasted a little bit of everything but the migas. My favorites were the pancakes, sausage and cheese grits! Of course the chicken fried steak was great but that is always a given.

You must know for me to say pancakes are good is a big deal. I don't like pancakes, I only eat pancakes at Kerby Lane. I think all other pancakes are waste. But Hoover's pancakes rival Kerby Lane's. I would definitely order them again. And the garlic cheese grits were so good that even though I didn't originally order them after tasting Michael's I asked the waiter to bring me my own.

We will definitely be going back to Hoovers for breakfast. It was the best breakfast I've had in a long time!


PS. Helene, remember it is HOOVERS not HOOTERS

What's a miga? It all sounds delicious - my kind of restaurant!

Migas are eggs scrambled with green pepper, onion, jalapenos and topped with either cheese or queso. To eat you scoop onto a flour tortilla, roll it up and enjoy.
