Ellen's Southern Kitchen

Map & Directions 1718 N. Market St.
Dallas, TX 75202


Dallas Observer's Description

While the West End may be known for TGI Friday's, Hooters and other chains that dominate the tourist-driven landscape, Ellen's Southern Kitchen could be on the way to changing the vibe. The first restaurant by owner Joe Groves brings affordable scratch cooking with a Southern flare to a landscape that is desperate for some innovation.
Take a seat in the darkly colored dining room and order a chicken-fried steak. Hand-battered and cooked to order, the addictive crispy steak is a fine rendition of the classic. The meatloaf is likely better than your mother's and the pork chop beats that of the average diner hands-down. Considering the menu pricing, eating like this feels like a steal. Breakfast, served all day, offers great options too, especially if you're late to rise on the weekends.

    This place is amazing. Cheap food but sooooo good. Chicken fried chicken with green beans and mac and cheese is a must. Server named Gregory is awesome. :-)

    Joe is very amusing, even before you've had your morning coffee. Sit at the bar!
