R&R Cater­ing now open in Cedar­town

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - By Sean Wil­liams

Thanks to R&R Cater­ing, Cedar­town fi­nally has a restau­rant ded­i­cated to soul food, and owner Rod­neshia Fife is look­ing to sup­ply your next wed­ding, grad­u­a­tion, an­niver­sary, or so­cial event with var­i­ous south­ern dishes.

The store is open on Mon­day through Fri­day from 11 a.m. through 6 p.m., and those look­ing to eat at R&R in per­son can visit at 1194 East Ave. De­liv­ery is avail­able for those within the Polk or Floyd County ar­eas, but pa­trons will be charged a $ 3 de­liv­ery free un­less they order 3 or more meals.

Floyd County or­ders must be made 24 hours in ad­vance, and or­ders can be placed by call­ing 706-676-8707.

The restau­rant is unique in that the menu changes ev­ery month, and each day of the week has its own re­cur­ring menu items for that month. Reg­u­lars will have new dishes to try con­stantly

“The menu changes monthly, so it’ll be the same Tues­day through Fri­day ev­ery week,” Fife said.

“And then in Fe­bru­ary, I’ll switch it up, and I might change out the meats, or on a cer­tain day I’ll change out the sides. It’ll al­ways be soul food.”

For ex­am­ple, Jan­uary’s Mon­day menu of­fers an en­tree choice of fried wings or bar­be­cue ribs, a choice of two sides in­clud­ing mac­a­roni and cheese, yams, col­lards, and bar­be­cue baked beans, a bread choice be­tween rolls and jalapeno corn­bread, and a bev­er­age choice be­tween tea, lemon­ade, fruit punch, soda, or bot­tled wa­ter.

The for­mat car­ries over each day, but the avail­able items will be dif­fer­ent.

All meals are $9 un­less oth­er­wise stated, and a daily dessert is avail­able for an ad­di­tional $3. A full menu can be found at https://www.ran­dr­ca­terin- gevents.com/lun­cheon-and­din­ner. Fife has op­er­ated R& R in var­i­ous lo­ca­tions since its cre­ation in 2008, but the Cedar­town lo­ca­tion saw a grand open­ing on Nov. 7, 2017. A long­time chef, Fife’s cater­ing be­gan at the re­quest of friends who en­joyed her cook­ing. “Stay pos­i­tive dur­ing the bad times be­cause there will be bad times. If it’s your pas­sion, then stick with it and stay pos­i­tive,” Fife said of run­ning a restau­rant.
