If you're conscious of your cholesterol count and plan your meals around vegetarian main dishes, read no more.
Ann's Open House is in the tradition of a '50s diner with homey artificial flowers in little vases and curtains at the window and a homey sort of service. The specialty is soul food, not fast food.
The daily specialties vary, so call ahead, but you can pretty much count on country favorites such as pig's feet, hog maws, chitterlings, ribs, ham hocks, collard greens and fried chicken.
