Re: “Bailey and Cato Family Restaurant

The words "deep fried cornbread" echoed in my mind for months after reading an article about Bailey and Cato on the Bites blog. The other day, i just so happened to be in the neighborhood and decided to give it a go. It was a low key Sunday afternoon, not to busy and as I waited in line, I pondered the menu. The special of the day? Brown gravy meatloaf with two veg for $6? Classic fried chicken with two veg $7 ($7.5 for white meat)? or do i go the BBQ route. The pork shoulder sandwich sounded good too (around $4.50). Decisions, decisions. As i approached the front counter, I could visually begin to narrow down my options. In the end, I opted for the smoked white meat chicken ($7.5). For my two sides i got greens and creamed corn, and of course, the reason this establishment had beckoned to me in the first place, the deep fried corn bread. With a bottle of water, the tab was 9 bucks and some change. I paid, grabbed my food and headed for a table outside.

Overall, it was not the culinary adventure I had hoped. The chicken was dry, really dry. I know it was white meat chicken, but it was DRY. The flavor of the chicken was awesome, deep and robust. The greens were good. The corn was tasty, and the deep fried cornbread was good, but a bit bland. A side of honey for dipping would have been nice.

Will I go back? Yes, with a maybe...
