"...It reminded me of the countless meals (with peach cobbler) we used to eat at Jimmy and Mrs. Young's cafe, The Southern Dinette, on East 11th back in the Seventies...."

Jimmie and Georgia
At their Southern Dinette, family-style soul food took on a whole new meaning.
Food Story  July 4, 2003, by Mick Vann
"...At night in the early Seventies, East 11th could be a dangerous place, but during the day we were always welcomed warmly by Jimmie and Georgia Owens at the Southern Dinette. It was right on the edge of the Eastside, just a few blocks east of the interstate..."

One For the Books
The Hit the Spot cafe does just that
Food Story  October 30, 2014, by Mick Vann
"...The bacon cheeseburger ($7.69) is magnificent, with a medium-rare 8-ounce Angus patty and smoked bacon slices, on a bun that tastes home-baked (with crispy fries). A peach cobbler with Blue Bell was so good it rivaled that of the legendary Southern Dinette on East 11th...."

East 12th Kafe
Soul and a smile at 12th and Springdale
Food Review  April 5, 2013, by Mick Vann
"...For Austinites of a certain age, the mouthwatering, cholesterol-clogging platter of meat-and-two comfort food, also known as "soul food," is close to being just a fond memory. I still remember exact details about meals at the Southern Dinette on East 11th, or at Virginia's on South First..."

Homegrown chef Hoover Alexander embraces Austin's Southern food tradition at Hoover's Cooking with a menu featuring personal renditions of treasured family recipes and friendly service that makes everyone feel right at home..."

Galloway Sandwich Shop
Galloway's isn't about sandwiches but delicious, Southern soul food
Food Review  September 19, 2008, by Mick Vann
"...The food is absolutely satisfying, especially if it's the kind of chow that you grew up on. For me, it's very easy to sit behind a huge plate of Galloway's vittles and drift back to the glory days of soul food at the Southern Dinette in the 1970s..."

Ben's Longbranch BBQ
Ben Wash's welcoming greeting, big smile, and positive outlook are once again drawing in the folks from the neighborhood and the throngs of smoked meat faithful
Food Review  October 15, 2004, by Mick Vann
"...If you can still hold anything after the onslaught, Ben's offers an unctuous banana pudding ($1.90) and a peach cobbler ($3.79) that rivals the one that Mrs. Owens made at the old Southern Dinette, which used to be right down the road..."
