My husband and I’s weekly day date is on Fridays. I stumbled on this spot the day before called Aunt Bill’s when I was in the area running errands. I was going to pick up food to go, but I decided to wait until Friday to get lunch so my husband and I could enjoy it together.
Aunt Bill’s is a Soul food cafe. Serving up Southern food and Southern hospitality.
We arrived at noon for lunch. As we walked in, we were greeted by two friendly people. The hostess and the owner. They were so welcoming and kind.
We chatted a bit with the owner before having a seat.
The waitress arrived really quickly at the table with the menu and to take our drink orders.
We placed our drink orders and began perusing the menu. I ordered an Arnold Palmer. One of my favorite drinks. For those who may not know, this is half lemonade and half sweet tea.
It didn’t take long to decide what we wanted. My husband decided on the Fried Chicken Wings plate.
The plate was served with 4 crispy chicken wings. That was fried to perfection. The chicken needed a little seasoning. Hubby tossed some hot sauce on top and they were good.
The side dishes he chose was the baked Mac and cheese and corn and okra succotash. Two great sides.
The only complaints that the baked Mac and cheese wasn’t baked. It was just Mac and cheese. Baked mac and cheese has a cheesy crust and is normally thicker.
The Corn and Okra succotash was delicious. I really enjoyed that. This side had great flavor.
I ordered the Fried Catfish plate. They had the option of tilapia as well. The catfish plate is the thin catfish.
The fish was fried perfectly. The seasoning level was a little bland for me. But it was fried nicely.
I ordered the garlic mashed potatoes. The Potatoes were delicious. Taste like something right out of grandma’s kitchen. Superb.
Being from Louisiana, I eat a lot of collard greens. This was my first time eating sweet collards. I didn’t like it at all. I tried to doctor it with some hot sauce and salt, but that didn’t work.
Each plate was served with a delicious, thick slice of corn bread like grandma makes.
Aunt Bill’s also has desserts, so we tried their peach cobbler. Flavor wise the cobbler was tasty. A good cobbler.
Overall our time at Aunt Bill’s was really good. The service was spot on. They do a great job of making everyone feel at home.
The food was good. They fry food very well. Some of the sides need a little work but I think that they are ironing out the kinks. They have only been open a few weeks.
Their menu offerings were limited. I think if they will have longevity, they will need to diversify the menu.
Maybe offering daily menu rotations. Or adding new options. Especially if you want repeat customers.
Price wise, the cost was overpriced for the portion sizes. We dine at a lot of soul food spots and we know what meals typically cost.
The restaurant was clean and nicely decorated. Aunt Bill’s provides a memorable dining experience with their amazing service.
Aunt Bill’s is located at 22603 Morton Ranch Rd Ste 220, Katy, TX 77449.
