Comfort Food Series: Dawson’s Kitchen


Hearty, home cooked tastes and often deep fried, comfort food can be a lot of things to different people, but for customers of Dawson’s kitchen in Macon, it’s all about eating the food that warms their bodies and their souls

“It’s always good to have a hot meal when it’s good and cold outside”, says Jeremy Davis, a customer of Dawson’s Kitchen.

Davis says when the temperature drops, “that cold sandwich don’t do it for me”.

He prefers something a little more comforting.

“I consider comfort food good ole’fashioned country cooking. Everything in this kitchen is pretty much comfort food in my option,” says Davis.

“We have mashed potatoes and roast been, spaghetti, chicken and dumplings”, says Susan Moore, the owner of Dawson’s Kitchen.

“I think people really like those in the winter time”.

Moore says during the colder season, customers tend to like heartier meals like their family used to make.

“We were young people and our parents fed us, our mothers fed us this food and that brings us comfort, I think”, says Moore.

It’s that comforting feeling that is warming the body, as well as the soul.

“We can warm your heart, your soul and your stomach”, says Moore.

Dawson’s kitchen is open for lunch and dinner six days a week, closing only on Sunday’s. For more information, click here.
