We have a HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT! We were contacted by the staff of Cooking With Paula Deen and asked if we would mind being featured in her July/August magazine spotlighting our Fried Green Tomatoes.

It was such an honor being one of the 10 restaurants in the nation and the only one in Texas to be featured.

Magazines are available now. Pick up a copy and read our story. Better yet come by and try them for yourselves!

Here’s an excerpt of KLTV’s report:

CANTON, TX (KLTV) – A Van Zandt County restaurant that focuses on Southern cooking is being featured in a magazine that does the same.

Ben Carter, owner of Buttermilk’s in Canton, says that the recipe he submitted was selected to be featured in the July edition of Cooking With Paula Deen. The issue features Buttermilk’s crisp, Southern-style fried green tomatoes in a feature about the tasty treats. Other features in the issue are creamed corn, fresh summer salads, and icebox pies.

Carter opened his restaurant on the square in downtown Canton in 2013. It offers “scratch cooking and southern hospitality,” which is evident by the Southern-style favorites on the menu, such as country fried steak and chicken, BLTs with fried green tomatoes, peach cobbler, and even a Southern-fried bologna sandwich.

“We’re all about Southern food,” said Kristie Risner during a 2016 interview. “We will make 180 pies on Thursday, and by Saturday, they’re all gone,” she said, while showing off the buttermilk pie under glass domes on stands on the counter.

Here’s a snippet from their great report:

If you are a Southern food connoisseur, the large slab of country fried steak with pepper gravy, fried green tomatoes, and pecan cobbler will likely appeal to you. The bacon burgers are tall and loaded with crisp, thickly-cut bacon. If you’re on a diet, don’t worry, they’ve got you covered with their large salad overflowing with fresh vegetables and topped with chicken, either grilled or fried (if you’re not too serious about that diet).

They added:

The food at Buttermilk’s will likely be appreciated by those looking for traditional Southern-style cooking, with a twist or two, of course. The old-fashioned, small town charm is a winner for those who love to feel like they’ve stepped back in time, or who aren’t into the fair-style food available at Trade Days in Canton each month. Just be prepared to wait during that time each month, as out-of-towners who have discovered the restaurant will be there with you.
