We have been doing a lot of eating out in Covington , Georgia and discovering some great places to eat. As many of you know we try and stay away from chains and find the local places that often go undiscovered, but when we find them they are off the chain. We want to share some of our finds with you and please let us know of great places that you enjoy in the Covington area.
Recently we were in church and our guest minister looked at his watch and commented that he needed to hurry up because he was keeping the congregation from Henderson’s. Of course this made us curious since we had not heard of Henderson’s but all the locals know this place. After we sought our directions we were on our way. Talk about heaven! Henderson’s is famous for their catfish. On Wednesdays and Sundays you can get vegetables and good comfort food like fried chicken, cube steak, fried pork chops, cobbler, banana pudding and much more is offered along with the regular menu. The menu has something for everyone and the quantities are massive. Delicious talipia, shrimp, oysters and some of the best hushpuppies you will ever eat. The Henderson family started the restaurant years ago and Mrs. Henderson and her children still run the restaurant. Trust me, the Hendersons will not let you leave hungry so be sure and check them out and you will quickly become part of the family!
A Gem on the Square
We love spending time at the Square in Covington. There is always something going on and there are shops that we enjoy visiting. Of course if I am shopping then I am going to eat and a great place we enjoy taking family and friends is Amici’s. Amici’s offers a relaxed atmosphere and it is a great “hang out” to grab delicious food, enjoy some spirits and watch a game. The outdoor patio area is also a great place to gather. The menu is big and there is something for every appetite. The pizza is some of the best and my stepson swears the buffalo chicken pizza is the best he has ever had. The sandwiches are great and the salads are plentiful. If you are in the mood for a burger you better big hungry because they are monster burgers. The staff is always friendly and the service is very good. Whether you are looking for a fun place to hang out for lunch or dinner or gather with friends and watch a ballgame be sure and check out Amici’s!
