Cafeteria style with "home cooking"

Food is OK, a bit bland for my tastes and a lot of fried items. Cobbler pie is good. Lots of seating space and quick service. We go only occasionally, when someone else suggests it.

When I went there, we ordered chicken fried steak, fried okra, mashed potatoes. I couldn't believe how good it was. Little surprised at the prices though. We paid about 10 dollars per person.

I would normally rate this diner a 4 out of 5. However, it just happened that, the last time we visited, the regular cook was in the hospital. The fill in over seasoned the food with too much salt for my liking. I wish their cook a speedy recovery. Again, I do think this is a 4 star diner! The... More

My wife and I stopped in for the first time last Sunday mid-afternoon. We were surprised by how many folks were there during what we thought would be an off time. Lots more came while we were there and everybody was promptly taken care of. The steam table line went very quickly and we found a dining table right away.... More

The usual meat + three type of menu that is okay. Problem is they seems to not give some of the dishes time to cook properly. Squash casserole is usually runny/soupy. Some days they have more bean choices than actual vegetables. The dinner rolls need more time to rise and their corn bread is sweet and seems more like dessert... More

The decor outside/inside may seem austere, but do not let that fool you! This food is straight out of your grandma's kitchen! I left completely over-stuffed, but still wanting more!

This place is well worth the trip to Who-town. It is cafe style with friendly Christian folks running it. It is hard to get in sometimes around lunch and dinner (Friday). It is in a very good location next to Garywood Assembly of God Church. Try it, you'll love it. I like the meatloaf, cream potatoes, and squash casserole. It'll... More

Nice cafeteria-style diner. The food is good and the prices are right. Be sure to ask about their gospel Thursday's. What a wonderful experience that is!
