Very friendly,homey atmosphere. My husband and I had chicken and dumplings, fried okra, greens, cornbread and biscuits. All the food was just like what "grandma used to make". Our server was very friendly and helpful. We'll definitely go to this restaurant whenever we're in the area.

This is a friendly location of the classic southern American restaurant. You get what you get here. I give an extra star for the service, which was top-drawer, on a slow night with a young girl learning her way. Food was quick and warm. No wait for a table.

Here in Madisonville, Kentucky the employees are also super friendly. The restrooms are always clean. You don't stand in line long. The is always something to buy in the clearance section. The store is always beautiful. The food is always delicious. Most of the time I order dumplings or chicken pot pie! I recommend!

Visited for lunch on a weekday. Restaurant was busy but the staff was great....a smile and a casual greeting goes a long way! Server was efficient and friendly; food was typical CB and the cashier was rushed,but on top of the situation. No complaints.

Drive up and down the middle of any big road in this part of America, and know that if you enjoy their food and service, one... More

Server very friendly, food came out very fast. I love shopping in the store and found great items 25% off. I had the fried shrimp, hushpuppies, fries, coleslaw, soup beans, and biscuits and could barely eat half of the food all for $10.

Kids menu is available to any age and includes your drink. My wife and I share the Sunday Fried Chicken which includes 2 large chicken breasts with 2 sides and order a... More
