Austin’s Amazing Southern Cooking – Hoover’s

June 23, 2020

After 22 years in business, this spot knows southern cuisine like the back of its hand.   We’re talking the very best of southern food: chicken fried steak, Jamaican jerky ribs, mac-n-cheese, sautéed string beans and on and on.  I’ll give you a little info about my first visit with my best friend. 


We came for lunch during the week and were greeted promptly and seated quickly. The menu had a lot of great sounding things but I settled on the fried pork chop. The single chop comes with three sides, awesome. While we were waiting for our food they brought out some mini corn muffins and some bread that had a great, light cinnamon flavor. Good stuff.

Our food came out and my companions had the fried catfish and BBQ chicken and they both looked great. My plate had the fried catfish as well, which although looking good, is definitely not a fried pork chop. I told the server I had ordered the chop and he apologized and went back to get it going for me. Very soon after, a gentleman came to our table and apologized for the mistake and offered me a dessert to make up for the error. What a great thing to do!

My fried chop came out shortly and it looked great and tasted even better. Crispy and perfectly fried. I asked for some cream gravy and that really put it over the top. The Mac & cheese, black eyed peas and green beans were great comfort food as well. Thoroughly enjoyed it all and just after eating my last bite, the gentleman appeared again and asked what dessert I had decided on. Coconut cream pie was the answer and oh how yummy it was. I was full but I made room for that delicious pie. What a great lunch! I'm telling all my friends how good the food was and how great the service was as well.


Delicious food! I was absolutely wowed by their sides! Cool environment, great service, and convenient location. I will definitely be going back, everything on the menu sounded so good it was hard to limit myself.  When I need some comfort food this is the place I go to, always good and service is great! Just wish I lived a little closer, but then I probably weigh 3000 pounds.  And their candied yams alone would get me to 1500 pounds.  I LOVE their candied yams.


With Sunday breakfast options, lunch, dinner and catering specials, you cannot go wrong.
