Yoder’s Deitsch Haus

5252 Georgia Highway 26 East, Montezuma, GA - (478) 472-2024

If you’re driving to Florida on the I-75 corridor through Georgia or going to visit the Andersonville National Historical Site, Yoder’s Deitsch Haus is a great place to eat. It is a 13 mile drive west from the Interstate to get to Yoder’s, but the drive is along an uncongested country road past cotton fields and dairy farms. It is a nice break from the monotony of Interstate driving.

The restaurant is not in town, but it sits along the road in the middle of Mennonite farm country. It is cafeteria style and run by Mennonites, which adds to its appeal. The women wear head coverings and their clothing is simple and traditional.

Yoder's features country cooking including meatloaf, shredded roast beef, fried chicken, ham, fried shrimp, and country fried steak. It seems everyone has a different favorite, but the roast beef is probably the most popular entrée choice. Side dishes include mashed potatoes or rice, and of course southern vegetables including creamed corn, turnip greens, fried okra, vegetable casseroles, spiced apples, and green beans.

Slices of pie are the featured dessert. Coconut cream, pecan, or peanut butter cream are some of the most popular pie choices. But there are others as well and sometimes slices of cake.

Or take your dessert with you on the road from the bakery on the side of Yoder’s, which sells cakes, pies, cinnamon rolls, brownies with or without nuts, snickerdoodles, etc. There is also a gift shop in a separate building with jams, honey, quilts, crafts, and other county knick knacks.

Yoder’s sometimes closes unexpectedly for the day if the owners have a wedding or death in the family. It is normally closed during the Thanksgiving weekend and on Good Friday. And they usually take a holiday vacation from Christmas until sometime in early January. So it is always a good idea to call ahead to make sure that Yoder’s will be open. Note: On Wednesday, Yoder’s is open for lunch only. It is closed on Sunday and Monday.
