Madison’s Place Is Good for the Soul


By Wil Crews

Madison’s Place, a new Soul food restaurant at USA Town Center in Opelika, is open and ready to serve the local community.

Located at 1120 Fox Run Ave., owner Katina Driver delivers on her promise of fresh food with a tasty menu that has rotating specials each day.

“We do baked chicken and fried chicken every day,” she said. “All our food is prepared fresh.”

With moderate price ranges that stretch from $9 to just over $20 for the Sunday Ox Tails, Madison’s Place is sure to provide an appealing option for all customers.

In addition to the chicken and Ox Tails, Madison’s Place serves turkey wings, beef tips and rice, hamburger steak, fried fish, pork chops and more. For sides, Driver said they have “all the country casseroles” and fixings.

Save room for Driver’s favorite menu item too, as the banana pudding is the perfect dessert to accompany any meal.

The name Madison’s Place comes from Driver’s granddaughter, who she said loves Soul food. Since it opened three weeks ago, Driver said business is going well, but still kind of slow due to the nature of opening an independent, new eatery. So, try Madison’s Place for yourself on Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., or Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
