That experience of childhood culture and meal making has led her philosophy in building her restaurant business. Kathy is more than a great restaurant with fresh, authentic food from the Valley, it is a gathering place for folks all over the valley to come and enjoy good homemade meal, just like mom used to make. It is a place where everyone from doctors, to teachers, to families, and factory workers can all join together to talk about life in the valley.
Kathy’s signature is her breakfast, which is served all day. Since the day Kathy opened the doors of her restaurant, she has been known for her outstanding pancakes which have received rave reviews by not only the locals but travelers from all over the world. The restaurant is also known for its homemade sausage gravy and biscuits, a dazzling array of omelets, and fruit filled roll-ups. Of course, a homemade southern breakfast wouldn’t be complete without home fries. Kathy’s serves them deep fried or grilled with onions. Either way, you don’t want to miss them!
Along with her famous breakfast, Kathy’s is also known for her great lunches and dinners which include everything from Southern Fried Chicken to Fresh Fried Oysters to Hamburger Steaks and an assortment of fresh vegetables including pinto beans, okra, mashed potatoes and other staples in home cooking.
