Reviews for Brenda's

My husband and I shared the grits, beignets, and egg and cheese sandwich. This was our first time trying Brenda’s. The egg sandwich was served on a soft, fresh roll, with pimento cheese. So good! The grits were smooth, with the right amount of butter and salt. Very tasty! And the beignets. Wow. I was sceptical at first because they were big, with just a dusting of powdered sugar on top. I ate my beignet in 3 quick bites. It was delicious! Sweet and moist. Very yummy. My full review
Finally got to try Brenda's (this is pre-covid)! The food was just as good as everyone raves! I had to get the beignet flight and it was definitely worth! The crawfish beignet was one of my favorites, super savory and flavorful! This place is great for a nice cozy sit down meal with family and friends, the local is not ideal -but the food is worth it! The wait is usually pretty long during the weekends, especially brunch. Would recommend coming on a weekday to lessen the full review

Take-out lunch, ordered online, ready for pickup right at noon as requested. Veggie poboy, fried chicken, succotash, and the Americana pulled chicken salad. That salad! Chopped cabbage, lettuce, sunflower seeds, crumbled potato chips, mint leaves, lots of tender chicken, and the most tangy, spicy dressing! I will order it next time, too! Also noteworthy: the crunchy coating on the fried chicken, spiced just right.
