I would like to add a few comments to Sallie Litchfield's article about Strick's Grill, "Real Soul Food."

I found out about Strick's about six years ago by asking some businessmen at another diner if they knew of any other places to try. Ever since then, I have been to Strick's for breakfast just about every day they are open. Your article focused on Soul Food and mostly the marvelous food Miss Dora is cooking for lunch. Now I love ox tails, pintos and collards, and she cooks up fried chicken that is so good you think you may want to eat the bone, but my favorite at Strick's is breakfast.

I am an architect, living in Marietta and working in Canton. I need a jump-start before I drive 35 miles to work, and Strick's is where I get it. Salmon patties (wow!), grits, eggs, toast and sliced tomatoes are what I usually get. Some mornings I treat myself to fried pork chops for breakfast. Dora is phenomenal! She does great biscuits, two kinds of sausage, thick bacon and some powerful coffee. We are talking just good county cooking.

Strick's is right in downtown Marietta but it is sort of hidden, at the intersection of Hunt Street and Lemon. With so many diners going out of business, I want to see the best one in town thrive! Ya'll come on down and join me for breakfast. You can sit at my table and I'll tell ya'll all about it.
