Country Queen Cafe features “good home cooking” for breakfast and lunch

BettyMBetty Maradik was raised in Fairhope and has been working in restaurants since she was thirteen years old. Her restaurant experience fostered her love of cooking and provided her with a solid front of the house foundation in restaurant hospitality. Maradik was also able to explore the business side of the industry after obtaining a degree in Accounting. Several years ago, Betty and her husband, David, decided that they needed something to do upon retirement. On the weekends they began working on a project on a piece of property that they owned. The couple devoted their time and energy into a building that now houses the new COUNTRY QUEEN CAFE. This past January, after all the finishing touches were put on the building, Betty got everything in order to make her cafe a reality. Betty knew that she wanted to provide the area with good home cooking and that is whats on the menu at the Country Queen Cafe. Breakfast from the hen house is served starting at 7am. Eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, sausage, grits, biscuits & gravy – all made from scratch. The lunch menu changes daily but you will find featured entrees such as beef tips, roasted pork, baked chicken, hamburger steak, meat loaf, chicken & dumplings and fried fish. Vegetables such as butter beans & okra, corn casserole, mashed potatoes & gravy, green beans, lima beans, field peas and squash are just a few of the options you might find to choose from. The Country Queen does have a few lunch items that are always available. Her signature sandwich is the Drip Beef Sandwich which is already making a name for itself. Slow cooked roast beef served on a warm crunchy bun with peperoncinos and melted cheese. Other sandwiches include a burger and a grilled pimento cheese sandwich. There is also a daily dessert. Some of the featured options will be a gooey butter cake, coconut cake, chocolate cake, rice pudding and different flavored cobblers. The Country Queen Cafe is open Monday through Friday. breakfast is served from 7am until 10am and lunch is served from 11am until 2pm.  Country Queen Cafe, 19548 Boothe Road, Fairhope  (251) 928-0500 • Facebook “Country Queen Cafe”
