Grandmother's country cooking

In Port Arthur stands Grandma’s Country Cooking, a southern eatery that serves up an amalgam of country classics that Southeast Texans love. The eatery cooks southern standards such as chicken fried steak, grilled pork chops and even whole fried catfish. These dishes come with a choice of two sides and can allow customers to customize their plates with various sides, including pinto beans, mustard greens and fried cabbage. Grandma’s Country Cooking shines in its ability to provide delicious, nostalgic southern cooking to Port Arthur. 

The beef tips were succulent and filled with savory flavor. The beef tips come smothered in beef sauce over rice and offers a filling entrée for any plate. The sweet corn compliments the savory beef tips with its standard sweetness and when paired with fresh potato salad the plate will surly transport anyone back to Sunday lunches at grandma’s house. 

The meatloaf entrée is a generous portion of meat served in brown gravy, which is made to be served with mashed potatoes. The duo of meatloaf and mashed potatoes bring savory, southern goodness right to your plate by letting the gravy mix with the potatoes the side, which becomes even more delicious and makes the whole plate a delight. The green beans play an important role not only in taste but looks. The hearty beans add a nice dash of color to the plate while also bringing their signature taste to the whole dish. 

The whole fried catfish is truly unique as far as Southeast Texas is concerned. The fried entrée is large enough to be shared and brings with it the nostalgia of a backyard fish fry. The perfect texture of crunchy fried fish and the zest of lemon make this dish a slam-dunk of southern cooking. The corn bread is truly a great addition by bringing a sweet quality to any plate. All in all the whole fried catfish needs to be seen, and tasted, to be believed.
