Debbie and I caught up over a very enjoyable dinner at This Is It! in East Point. The food was quite good and the service was extremely gracious. The restaurant has a long history going back to Miami in the 1950's.
The service is cafeteria style. Some of the dishes, such as the catfish, are cooked to order and brought to your table.
Debbie ordered the fried catfish. I was able to sample it---moist on the inside, crispy on the outside.
The restaurant's motto is "It's the Rib Tips!" so that's what I ordered, along with hot sauce. They were tender and meaty. The greens were delicious, tender but not over-cooked. The sweet potato was rich with butter and brown sugar.
We sampled two desserts. The banana pudding was classically good. The banana flavor came through well. The vanilla wafers at the bottom were moist and fun. The sweet potato pie was moist, just rich enough, and very nicely spiced.
