For more than a decade, Tom's Home Cookin' has been a stick-to-your-ribs, lunch-only respite for soul-food seekers and Southerners, blue-collar workers and chefs, chatterers and chicken-chasers. The fried chicken, profoundly moist with skin crusted the color of copper, flies right every single time. It's a sign of more goodness to come: peach cobbler, macaroni and cheese (it's the Velveeta, people), cornbread stuffing and whatever else owners Steve Jankousky and Tom Unterwagner have on the day's chalkboard. Get in line early, because Tom's sells out fast.
