PERRY, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) -- Owner of the Oil Lamp Restaurant Judy Wenger uses butter instead of margarine, seasons everything herself, and says she likes her food rich.
Wenger says, "I grew up Mennonite so it has the flair of Mennonite cooking, but it's mainly Southern."
Customer Donna Arrow eats at the restaurant at least four times a week. She says, "You can tell it's a lot of homemade, its got the good fresh garden taste."
One of the specialties and a customer favorite is the broccoli and rice casserole.
Dave Davidson says, "This broccoli casserole is the secret ingredient, it's delicious, and it keeps me going."
The recipe calls for broccoli florets, cooked with salt and pepper, rice, cheese and cream of mushroom soup.
"It's very good and I had cornbread with it, which just topped it off," according to Willene Stewart.
The Oil Lamp Restaurant is located at 401 Courtney Hodges Boulevard in Perry.
