A Taste of the South
By Rachel Shuster
Sweet T Southern Kitchen blends authentic southern style cooking and that good ol’ hospitality. Located at 35 Blackstone River Road in Worcester, Sweet T Southern Kitchen is a guaranteed good meal and good time.
Tony Sanders and Michaun Fowler are not only co-owners of the restaurant, they’ve also been friends for many years. “We met ten years ago when I worked as a realtor and helped her find an apartment,” Sanders said. “We talked about how we wanted home cooked food, but there was no where to get it. We put our business plans together and opened the restaurant on December 10, 2010.”
Born in Mason, Georgia, Sanders has the south and the restaurant business in his blood. “Many of the recipes are ones I grew up with. My mother actually bakes the restaurant’s buttermilk pie, one of our best sellers,” Sanders adds.
Sweet T offers made-from-scratch southern dishes including country fried chicken and southern ham. Side dishes include collard greens and fried okra. Also check out the beef stew with cornbread and spicy chicken gumbo. Sweet T also offers pecan and sweet potato pie. Prices range from $2.50 – $4.50 for individual items, but in a meal deal, you get 1 meat and 1 side for $6.75 or 1 meat and 2 sides for $8.50!
Sweet T has daily specials and college night (15% off with college I.D.) on Wednesdays, when they offer hush puppies and fries. Each Saturday at the BYOB restaurant, it’s New Recipe Day! Sunday belongs to southern brunch. Sanders adds, “Each week we feature specialties from different southern states. It’s like a tour of the south.”
Sweet T Southern Kitchen is open Tues – Sat: 11:00 am – 8:00 pm and Sun: 11:00 am – 3:00 pm. Check out sweettworcester.com or call 508-756-0100 for more information.
