Mazie Restaurant

This is the sort of place whose description necessitates the mention of something like: "Now mind you, it's not much to look at." It appears to have once been a Dairy Queen-like operation, a stand-alone rectangular box with an angled take-out window. But for those willing to take the road less traveled for the sake of something as trivial as distinctively tasty turkey wings - well, let's talk about those turkey wings: Chopped on each end, they look a little like ribs and boast fully seasoned flavor beneath glistening mahogany skin. Mazie's, whose motto is "where the homies meet," opens 7 a.m. and dispenses tasty breakfast subs - try the bacon and egg. Lunch specials bring a hot, hefty main course with choice of one starch and one side. The dinner specials, which can be had during lunch as well, come with one starch and two sides. Here is what we ordered: lemon pepper chicken wings, turkey wings, a smothered pork chop, baked chicken with barbecue sauce, mashed potatoes with gravy, collard greens, stewed okra and tomato, yellow rice, rice and beans, macaroni and cheese, black-eyed peas, lima beans, and a wedge of homemade yellow cake with chocolate frosting. Tax is included, but don't forget to put some bills into the tip jar. Mazie's is simply solid soul food at a bargain price - to go. 'Nuff said.
