This is a local neighborhood food stop with great chicken. It is broasted, pressure fried, to a crispy golden brown that stays hot until you have finished every crispy juicy bite.

I love places like this. Great food made by the family that runs the place and show that they care about their customers. There are only two tables, but I suspect most folks just grab the chicken and eat at home. My daughter and I had the double bacon cheeseburger, which had a grilled bun. Very tasty.

Just love this place. Fantastic Chicken! And the ribs are fall off the bone tender. The people here are so friendly and the prices very reasonable. We have also used them in the past for catering.
