When Sema Wilkes first opened the family style restaurant in 1943, her home-cooked meals changed daily, and were served at communal tables where strangers passed around her legendary chicken, meatloaf, and stew, along with candied yams, rice & gravy, and whatever else she cooked up. The Wilkes kids still run the hugely popular place, where your dining mates are whoever sits next to you, and where you can book a room in the historic building if you end up overloading on baked beans.
