Vidalia Lunch Menu Recs

I'm not exactly a foodie or gourmet, but I'm going to Vidalia next week for a business lunch. Any recommendations for an appetizer and entree? Not really a fish guy, but like most other stuff. Not too fancy though (I realize this isn't a good place for me but it wasn't my call)...thanks

    They do have "fancy" southern food, but southern food always tends to be more comfort food no matter how fancied up it is. I know you don't like fish, how about shrimp? Their shrimp and grits are their specialty although very unlike a lot of shrimp and grits you get in the south still very good. Also I would consider a side of mac and cheese, it is really good, perhaps that could be a starter?

    I haven't eaten here in a little while and have only gone for dinner so the menu is a little different and I haven't had a lot on it. Also you might consider saving room for dessert. Their pecan tart and lemon chess pie were very good when I was there.

    I would love to hear if anyone had the guinea hen, now that sounded good on its description.

        I don't remember them having the head on, you can ask them to cut them off, or just cut them off yourself, but if you ask they will probably do it for you they are nice about that kind of thing, it's not a big deal, a lot of people like to eat that part which may be why they leave it on if they do, I don't remember that, but as I said it's been a while.
