To celebrate my youngest nephew's birthday me, my dad and step-mother took him to Massey's Restaurant for lunch. He had a chicken fried steak. The place has been in the same location, on 8th Avenue almost exactly between Berry and Rosedale Streets, since the '40s and it remains extremely popular with it's home cooked meals and delicious desserts. The fried catfish is excellent.

A few years ago the original owner was gonna close the place down due to his age but a couple of younger fellas talked him into leasing it to them and they contacted my dad to buy from and install new flooring. I know a lot of folks were very happy to see it re-open as the same place with the same good food. The different color of carpeting they paid no mind to.
