Situated right next to a farmer's market, Triple A is known for greasy spoon diner fare. From homemade Southern classics like chicken and dumplings, cornbread and chicken fried steaks to a very popular breakfast menu, Triple A specializes in comfort food. Stepping inside will transport you to another era, when waitresses were sassy and called you "honey" and "darlin'" and the most popular place to watch a movie was a drive-in. Plate lunches and dinners include one meat and three sides with a choice of a roll or piece of cornbread for under $10.
Me and a co-worker went to Triple A's for lunch. We heard wonderful things about the fried chicken. So, we decided to place an order. We called the order in as we left the parking lot at work. 20 Mins later we arrived at the restaurant and we were taken to a table and told that our chicken would be right out. We were given menus but did not receive any water until about 15 mins later. We did not receive any cornbread until I asked for some. We sat there for 40 mins before the chicken was on its way out. By then we had to make it an to go order because we only had an hour or so for lunch. Once we paid for our orders we got in the car and open the bags just to see what 60 min chicken looked like. Low and behold for chicken that had just come out of the grease it was NOT hot at all. We called back to the restaurant and the waitress told us that she was the one that took the order and it had only been 30 min from placing the order to receiving it. My phone logs all calls and it was 20 min to get to the restaurant and 40 min to get the chicken once we were there. WE WILL NEVER EAT AT TRIPLE A'S AGAIN!!!!!. Not just because of the cold chicken but for the blatant disregard for our dissatisfaction. We were not asking for free food because we had already paid for it. We just wanted it to be know that we were displeased with the order and the service.

There are eight customers in the Triple A Restaurant at 10:30 in the morning; all of them are men, and four sport comb-overs. The wood-grain Formica on the tables and the orange vinyl on the chairs are a little worn. There is a picture of a 1935... More »
