The Black Cow in Columbus, Georgia Review

Updated on June 24, 2011

This past week, I decided to go with a few coworkers to The Black Cow for lunch. I was a little worried, as I was not sure what it would be like- the food or the prices.

When we walked in, the interior was a little small. There were a few booths on the side and tables in the middle. Although the restaurant appeared empty, we were told we had to wait. When we were seated at a booth, the restaurant slowly filled... No, wonder we had the short wait.

Within minutes, all of the tables were booked and we still didn't know what we wanted for lunch.

The waitress took our drink orders. She was very pleasant and patient while we overlooked the one page- back and front- menu over and over.

The basic food options included salads or entrees. I went safe with a chicken cesar salad, whereas my coworkers decided on meatloaf and grilled chicken tenders. With most of the entrees, you received two sides, and for some of the meals or some of the sides, there was a 25 cent up-charge to change from what the menu stated.

Everyone was pleased with what they ordered, and the food wasn't bad, which put out that nerve. I hate ordering and having to pay for food that just isn't all that great.

Speaking of paying, the price isn't all that bad. Most of the lunch plates averaged around 8.95. Even the steak tips were only 9.95. The portions were average, so you didn't get too much or not enough.

When you walk into the restaurant, you expect higher prices, with the leather table cloths and the overall atmosphere (even though the workers wore tee shirts).

Keep in mind that the restaurant is closed on Sundays, so if you want to go for a special occasion that happens to fall on a Sunday, plan for the day before or after. I'd also recommend and strongly urge you to make reservations for busy times (lunch and dinner), special occasions, and larger parties.
