My wife and I stopped in here for a Sunday morning breakfast and really enjoyed ourselves; sometimes there is just nothing quite like some Southern comfort food to start the day off with.

Everything was great! The sausage gravy, grits, sausage patties, biscuits and eggs. Forget the places along the interstate. Come into town and enjoy a delicious breakfast.

Hit this iconic River Valley restaurant for dinner with the family. Love the personal interaction you get from the staff the moment you walk in. The food was great with lots of choices on the menu. Prices are comparable to other places around and portions are filling.

Their biscuits and gravy make you want to slap your mama and their omllettes are huge and tasty. Everybody is really friendly, service is fast, more than reasonably priced. It's classic,... More
