After more than 30 years in the culinary business, chef Delvin Wilson is finally realizing a long-held dream - owning a family-run restaurant. Wilson came to Amarillo after working at private country clubs throughout the U.S., settling first at Amarillo Country Club and later taking care of the gustatory needs of the residents at Park Place Towers.
This October Wilson, along with his wife and children, renovated a building on North Hughes, turning it into a charming, cozy cafe minutes from downtown - the perfect retreat from a busy workday. Wilson serves up his family's favorite comfort food recipes like fried catfish, barbecue, meatloaf, fried pork chops, and melt-in-your-mouth buttermilk pie, along with some of the friendliest service in town. The menu will change with the seasons, and Wilson is willing to feature his client's favorites dishes - all you have to do is ask.
