Ms. Stella’s is simply soul food done right. Owner Lucious Trawick brings classic southern comfort foods to life at Ms. Stella’s - a restaurant named in honor of his grandmother, a neighborhood icon. The restaurant has been serving home cooked meals to the Milledgeville community for over 9 years.

The down-home cooking fare rotates daily and includes delicious staples like smothered pork chops, fried chicken, sweet potato dumplings and cube steak. The meat choices and ample offerings of vegetables are all family and friend recipes, and you'd better get there early as favorite dishes sell out daily. According to Trawick’s cousin, the longtime cook, customer favorites include catfish fillets, turkey wings, collard greens, macaroni and cheese, and mashed potatoes. Be sure to leave room for a slice of caramel cake!
