I will never go back! – Honestly, yes the food was good, but to go to a place that charges .50 to refill your drink! Com'on!
Not only that, the place is so out dated! I'm sure when Kathy first got her own business she took pride in keeping the place clean! Well, while you wait for your meal to be prepared, which took about 50 min. You have time to really look at the place. When was the last time they cleaned the vents? Maybe with what they charge for your refills, they should put that money in a bucket, and when they gather up enough money, buy some new blinds, and slap a new coat of paint in the place. Maybe buy some pictures and plants to spruce it up a bit, since you charge so much for your meals, and don't ask for a carry out container.....Bring your own, because they will charge you for that too!
Yea, I'm sorry I will give this place two thumbs down! They charge enough already, I should get all the refills,and a to go plate if I want with there prices!
OK food, but $$ over priced – Guess I am ruined being from east Texas where anywhere you go you can get good food for 1/2 what Kathy charges. Chicken fried steak from Ma Goodsons in Tomball (home of the best CF in Texas) with all the trimmings (corn on the cob, mashed potatoes, beans and cornbread or homemade biscuits) costs about $7.95 including sweet tea. Come down a little and I shall return.
If you don't like Kathy's, you don't know good food – Expect to shell out $25 a head for a meal, but the portions are large and the food is incredible. Don't expect a fancy atmosphere or waiter in a tux. This place is real, down home southern goodness. Everything is always juicy and mouth watering. I go now and ask the cook to make something for me, I don't even need to look at the menu, and everything is so good, it's too hard to decide. The tea, lemonade and all the desserts are also fabulous, I can't resist the peach cobbler!
It used to be ok, but it is waayyy over priced! – I used to eat there often for years. Then their main seller, Chicken Fried Steak, was never in stock and then they took it off the menu without explanation. The side portions are tiny and wayyyy over priced. However, I understand that having a business in Las Vegas is expensive. Then they get an attitude when you don't want anything else on the menu. It is a shame that a place has a number one dish and then stop selling it. I still wonder how they stay open when people would go there SPECIFICALLY for that dish! I haven't eaten there in a year and not missing it anymore.
Never Again! – I told my boyfriend about Kathy's and wanted him to eat there because he lived in New Orleans for 15 years and misses the great food. We were both shocked at the pricey menu. But the kicker was the server who made no secret of how perturbed he was that I ordered an appetizer portion of gumbo instead of the regular portion. He said, "I don't know if she [referring to the cook I assume] is going to want to do that. You're not supposed to order only an appetizer." WTF?! We couldn't believe it! Then when he brought the gumbo, he made ANOTHER rude comment about how reluctant the cook was to serve only an appetizer portion. I'm a native Las Vegan and NEVER had I ever been treated this blatantly rude and scoffed at for ordering something! I will NEVER eat at Kathy's again. The food was good, but the horrible service left a bad taste in our mouths.
AMAZING!!! – I am NOT from the south so I can't compare it to Grandmas. My grandparents where Irish immigrants. BUT I have traveled the world over and I CAN say without a doubt, the best fried chicken, yams, and bread pudding I have EVER tasted! The green beans had the most amazing flavor too! Homemade cornbread! A friend ordered the smothered steak and it was incredible! Even better than M&M's. Although M&M's has fan-freaking-tastic cornbread stuffing. Next time I go to Kathy's, I will try the ribs. I am from Kansas City originally so I don't think ANYTHING in Vegas could ever come close to the BBQ I am used to but I will let you know how Kathy's compares.
Not Even Close – I will give it to you like this. NAW BABY!
This place aint even close to being real southern food. I went based on all the rave on this site and i was very dissapointed. I will say that not all southern food is done the same so maybe this just aint from my part of the south which is louisiana.
It was a VERY watered down representation of southern food i wouldnt recommend it but if you gone go then just be prepared and know that you are not experiencing authentic louisiana southern cooking.
kathy's Southern Cooking – I just relocated to the LV an a friend told me I had to check out this place called Kathy's Southern Cooking, so here I am to tell you about my experience: It was a Friday night the wait was no very long for me and my friend to get a table. We sat down look at the menu and I knew I was home! I ordered the sweet tea and my friend ordered lemonade; both were mouth watering good! when the catfish and the smothered chicken came out both were steaming hot(thats how I like my food hot, hot hot). the catfish had this cornmeal type batter that reminded me of being in my own home as if grandma cooked it for me. The smothered chicken was so tender and juicy that my friend could not resist licking a finger or two with out even realizing that she had a napkin on the table, ha,ha. I must say the sidedishes were just and delectible as the main course. Everyone must try this place so they can experience the down home feel for themselves.
Good food, ancient method of payment. – The food was really good. Service was a little strained - only one server spread over four or five tables at once. I realize in most restaurants that is a normal ratio, but for some reason the server may not have been used to that. The ribs and fried chicken were excellent entrees. The potato salad side order was perfect, but the macaroni and cheese had a weird taste to it. Corn bread was mediocre. Overall, it was a cool place; however, the kicker came at the end when I tried to pay the bill. They split the bill no problem, but they only accepted debit cards or cash. Seeing as how I had no cash, I used my debit card, but they had to charge a minimum of $20 and also charged a service fee of $1.50. I had no other choice but to accept, so I was given the excess over my meal as cash, left the tip, and left the establishment knowing that if there was a next time, I would have to remember to bring cash. A few days later, I notice in my bank account that they put the charge through as an ATM withdrawal instead of a regular debit card transaction, so my bank also charged me a $2.00 service fee for not using a bank ATM. I don't remember seeing anything describing this situation at the restaurant, so just beware and make sure to bring cash to avoid a potential $3.50 in extra fees!
