The Story of Two Doors Down and How We Got Our Name
In 1951, Tom A. Davis opened a restaurant at the corner of Park and Forest Street. He named the restaurant “Tad’s”, which were his initials.
In the early 70’s Bernie Hoffman purchased Tad’s from Tom Davis and continued the tradition until the mid 1980’s, when Norman Abraham purchased it from Mr. Hoffman.
Norman continued the tradition of Tad’s until 1997 at the 400 Park Street location. That year the State Highway Department took the property in order to widen Forest Street.
Our present location, 436 Park Street, was originally Catanese Florist for many, many years. Two Doors Down is now located two doors down from the original Tad’s location at 400 Park Street.
Good food and “a place to meet and eat” has always been the trademark of the past three owners. Norman and his partner/cook “Whitey”, as he is affectionately known, promise to keep the tradition that has been handed down for almost 60 years.

This place is awesome!!! The waitresses are very friendly and appear to be long-timers. Low staff turnover tells me that people enjoy working there. Customers are treated like family. The food is terrific--just like your mother used to make. Everything is fresh, perfectly cooked and very light on the salt.
The prices are very reasonable, especially when considering the generous portions. I only wish I could eat there more often! This is a family owned and operated restaurant, and the owners are truly passionate about serving great food and providing the very best customer service.
While I haven't had the chance to stop by for breakfast, I have enjoyed a few lunches at Two Doors Down. They have all been great experiences. This last trip was the most expedient yet. We had chicken and dumplings and grilled chicken as the Friday specials.
Seven of my staff and I ate here this morning for breakfast. We have been disappointed in other restaurants offering breakfast close to the office, so we ventured a little further down the road. We are SO glad we did!!! We all had various items on the breakfast menu and all was cooked to perfection. Dottie our waitress was awesome! We got first class service from start to finish. Can't wait to go again!
Phenomenal service, really sweet, caring waitresses. Owner is a nice guy and checks on you with sincerity. Good down home southern cooking.
