Sunday Dinner Restaurant, Catering and Banquet facility began as a dream in the home of James and Lesia Boyd. Lesia had always dreamed of having a place where families could connect. A devout Christian, Lesia wanted to prepare a place for others to come and be ministered to with love, compassion and delicious food.

For many years Lesia and James opened their home to their spiritual family. They provided a place for them to come every first Sunday of the month and enjoy fellowship, fun, and delicious food. “All were encouraged to bring anyone in their circle that needed hospitality and or love and they were welcomed with an abundance of warmth and acceptance,” she says. These ingredients would eventually serve as the foundation for what the Boyd’s now offer at their restaurant.

Approximately two years ago, James, Lesia, Tyrone (their son) and his daughter, Arianna, began serving meals at Sunday Dinner. Sunday Dinner is open every Sunday from 12:00pm until 6:00pm. Sunday Dinner also offers catering on site and off site and offers family holiday meals for take out for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Just like they did in their home, the Boyd’s now offer that same love by preparing many of the entrees like Smothered Pork Chops, Fried Wings, Meatloaf, Lemon Butter Tilapia, Macaroni and Cheese, Sweet Potato Casserole and a very addictive Corn bread with Honey Butter. Their menu is complimented with many more soulful creations that make Sunday Dinner one the more popular places to visit after attending church on, Sunday.

Lesia says God used so many people to bring their dream to life. “God’s favor caused so many people to give (pressed down, shaken together and running over) of their time, talents, resources and love,” she says. Even as times get tough and the strains of operating a business arise, the Boyd’s have relied on their faith and continue to do business as usual.

Sunday Dinner hosts many events including pastor appreciations, church conferences, weddings, and birthday parties. They are also proud to sponsor monthly gospel dinner plays written and directed by Pastor Kevin Maxwell, City of Refuge Outreach Ministries and performed by Another Gospel Creation.

“Sunday Dinner is made up of so many family members. When you come to Sunday Dinner just ask anyone serving you if they are family and I assure they will tell you they are,” she says. Sunday Dinner is more than a meal, more than a tradition, more than just our heritage, it is the Boyd’s ministry. “Sunday Dinner is a place where the Spirit of God dwells and where Jesus is Lord of all,” Boyd says.
