Acclaimed for her skill as well as her spirit, the late Miss Helen Dickerson presided over the Magnolia Room kitchen for more than 60 years, serving “soul food with its Sunday clothes on.” Helen’s Southern fried chicken was featured on the Food Network show Tyler’s Ultimate and The Phil Donahue Show.
Dot Burton lovingly worked side by side with her mother, Helen and sister, Lucille, for more than 50 years. Dot’s laughter still echoes throughout the kitchen as the chicken simmers and her handmade breakfast biscuits rise.
Today, Lucille along with Dot’s daughter, Tina Bowser, continuse to honor the family legacy of culinary excellence. Our restaurant patrons have enjoyed Helen, Dot, and Lucille’s recipes for over 75 years.
