Sweet Tea Restaurant.
Sweet Tea is advertised as traditional southern cooking with a touch of Greek (see here). It has been overwhelmed with customers and has struggled out of the gate since opening but has promised to address its opening bobbles.
Upon entering the restaurant, one goes through a cafeteria line set up like most cafeterias: cold desserts and cold sides, entrees, hot sides, and hot desserts. One is given a ticket but the server collects the money, as well as serves the beverage of choice. This meal was $13 plus tip.
Despite the fact that I showed up at 3:15 in the afternoon, the food was still pretty good although, to date, not exceptional. The portions are ample, as you can see. I must have had 12-16 ounces of pot roast (two slices stacked). I did not see any Greek influence but am promised that will happen in the future. It is certainly a convenient place to go when I feel the need for mashed potatoes, green beans, and fried okra. I'll give them time to get grounded before returning.
Carry-out is available, parking ample at 3:15 in the afternoon but could get troublesome at peak meal times, and they are participating in Birmingham Restaurant Week this week.
