    I've been going there for years - used to own a business in Lakeland and would eat lunch there.
    The fried chicken is quite good and their grapefruit salad has a sweet/piquant dressing which makes it wildly addicting. These days I usually get a vegetable plate there. Many love their pies, but the crust doesn't do it for me.

    During strawberry season I can make a meal on the strawberry shortcake from Parksdale! (PC)

      Thanks for the recommendation, we went there for lunch and were quite pleased. I really liked the Chicken Fried Steak. It is one of the few places I have liked that since moving to Fla from Louisiana 10+ years ago. Most places here rely on frozen ones that come out more batter and grease then steak. The Lima beans were absolutely delicious. My wife had the turkey and dressing, and I couldn't have cooked that better myself. We will definitely be going back.

        If you like milkshakes give theirs a try. I don't do much dairy, so have no direct experience - but my father and my ex both thought they were great!

        I'm glad you enjoyed it! It was always a solid choice when I was in Lakeland frequently.
        I'm trying to remember the other places I liked, but it has been a few years...
