For the Opelika
Susie K’s Country Cooking, located at 1801 2nd Ave. in Opelika, will be extending their regular business hours.
Originally known for their Southern homestyle breakfast and lunch, Susie K’s will now be serving dinner Monday through Saturday from 5-9 p.m. and serving brunch on Saturdays until 2 p.m.
“It’s all homestyle country cooking: everything is made from scratch,” said Susie K’s Owner Suzanne Lowery. “Like our fried chicken fingers are battered in house, the casseroles are made from scratch, and the vegetables are made fresh daily in-house. So basically, if you could go get it from your grandmother’s house, it’s what we have here.”
Dinner will feature a variety of customer favorites such as catfish, chicken livers, fried shrimp and fresh daily vegetables.
Lowery said the dish she is most looking forward to serving for dinner is the fried pork chops.
“We do serve them at lunch as well, but I’ve had a lot of requests to have them more than once a week,” Lowery said. “They are soaked in buttermilk, so they are very tender and juicy. You just can’t go wrong with a fresh pork chop.”
