Sister’s Comfort Food 2236 E. Tenth St. (John H. Boner Community Center)

I try to start out with a picture of the places facade. This one doesn’t really have a facade of its own. What it does have is a cozy little corner in the John H. Boner Community Center, just east of the Tech High School campus. They have been opened for 3 years and I just learned of it last week. After eating here Pat and I both think that it’s a wonder it isn’t always full of hungry customers.

The menu is basic and the prices are in line with most other restaurants of its kind. When you factor in the quality and the quantity it is a true bargain.

The printing on their carry out menu was light so my copy may be difficult to read for the ocularly challenged.

It is a pretty sweet space. A neat and clean dining room and a spacious kitchen nearly as large as the dining area.

As for the food it was pretty sweet as well. Pat ordered a breaded tenderloin, $7.50 with a side choice. The cool thing about a “meat and 2” joint is you aren’t stuck with fries or onion rings as side options.

Yep. Meatloaf. To me the quintessential comfort food. Here you can get a dinner for $11. In addition to a substantial portion of meatloaf you get 2 sides and cornbread. My 2 sides were collard greens and mashed potatoes and gravy. The meatloaf was done very well. It had an excellent flavor and texture. The density was spot on. The Sisters use oats as the filler. Specifically steel-cut oats. To some that may sound odd but steel-cut oats were probably the original binding agent for the “modern” meatloaf. Starting in the 30’s I believe Quaker and others pushed rolled oats as a more economical alternative. That would be the meatloaf of my childhood. In either event the Sister’s version was excellent. The greens were good as well,however Pat and I thought they were a bit on the salty side. As you can imagine the mashed and gravy were outstanding  also. Buttery ‘taters and creamy gravy really rounded out the meal.

So now you know. As they say this place is on point. The real deal. They offer good cooking in a nice environment at more than fair pricing. I might suggest you save some room for dessert as they also offer a variety of baked goods.

  1. I’ve seen signs for that place, and always wondered. Now I know. I could go for that plate right about now. I’d leave you all the meatloaf too 🙂

    • It is a nice little joint. Of course if you are trying to avoid meat you would have to eat only sides. Which isn’t a bad way to go.

    • Amen. I have always been a fan of what I like calling “peasant food”. Plain and simple but full of taste.

  3. Another Breaded Pork Tenderloin to try. This one looks special.
