I went on Saturday afternoon and it was a busy place. Very typical southern style restaurant. You can get a meat + 2 or 3 veggies; two veggie plate or 3 veggie plate. They had a few other things on the menu but I stuck with the tried and true. The selection of meats and veggies varied by the day... More

This place reminds me of Sunday dinner at grandma's house, every thing is cooked to perfection, the best meat and three veggies you will eat any where, you don't stay in the restaurant business for fifty years unless your this good. PS don't tell anyone I have enough trouble getting a table now.

But to be fair I never have to wait long for a table; they actually have a very large seating capacity & quick service, particularly at lunch. This is a typical Southern meat & 3 with a fixed weekly menu and some all-week-long gems. My particular favorites are the squash casserole (Tuesdays) and the ribs (all week long). To round... More

We picked this restaurant from Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. The restaurant was clean, the servers were friendly and the food was good. Our order came out before we had time to blink. I would save room for dessert- our family of 3 split two and it was a good ending to a southern "down home" meal

Ate dinner there on our way through to FL from MI. Great experience! If I lived near Dalton, I'd be a regular. We WILL be sure to stop in every time we pass through. Food was 'down home' excellent. Smoked chicken...very flavorful, fell off the bones, complemented with their bbq sauce that I can only describe as 'sassy'. Pulled pork... More

We are new to southern cuisine and this homey and welcoming place was a wonderful alternative to the numerous chains in town. As someone else has mentioned on this site, Jeffrey is truly an attentive and gracious server who offered us terrific advice and suggestions. A delightful experience.

This is what the South is all about; service with a smile, sweet tea and bbq. Set in the middle of downtown Dalton, we had a great lunch. Pulled pork and slaw were ok, but the ribs and salad were amazing. The Shirt had baked chicken (said it was great). If you're driving on I-75 and looking for lunch, check... More
