Carter’s Grill and Restaurant is Albany, Georgia’s most beloved soul food establishment. Located near the Albany Civil Rights Institute, this is a popular lunch spot for its massive portions and reasonable prices. The dishes are made daily and are cafeteria-style. Carter’s is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
What you should order completely depends on the day, as the menu changes depending on the day of the week. A meat and three is the best way to get a little bit of everything, as I did on my recent visit. The fried chicken is juicy and crispy and the rice and gravy and collard greens make nice sides.
