Macon's H&H restaurant re-opens | News
Macon's soul food is back as the doors for H&H reopened Wednesday.
After the iconic restaurant closed earlier this year, Mama Louise partnered with The Moonhanger Group, which owns downtown Macon's Rookery and Dovetail restaurants and the Armory Ballroom.
The partnership has been working all summer to get some fresh paint on the walls, the kitchen up to code and the fryers frying again.
H&H was a meeting place for civil rights activists and opened in 1959 by Inez Hill and Louise Hudson, also known as Mama Hill and Mama Louise. The restaurant was a popular eatery during the early days of The Allman Brothers Band and other music groups from Macon such as the Molly Hatchet Band and Wet Willie.
But the main reason anyone goes to a restaurant is for the food.
