Down home country food

It doesn't look like much on the outside but, Plan your trip so you can stop here for lunch. The place where ALL the locals go for Sunday dinner. Best country cooking in the south. Save room for dessert.

If you are within an hour of this place, or 10, it's worth the drive for the chicken, and blackberry cobbler! Mr. Davis is a wonderful soul, and a master at what he does!

Wonderful old time store with many original fixtures. Antiques and other items for sale. The best part was the restaurant which was buffet style home style foods. The fried chicken was the best I have ever eaten! We had fresh peach cobbler with ice cream for dessert! I did not give it a 5 because the interior was not air... More

Best. Fried. Chicken. Ever. Alton Brown featured it on one of his shows, and based upon his ravings, I had to try this one day. That day arrived, and I am glad it did. I will go here again before I die, the Good Lord willing.

We heard of this place from a friend that stopped by during travel. Since we were camping in Brookhaven (45 min away), we decided to check it out. I don't eat much and don't like most of the food on the buffet. My husband on the other hand loves the good ol' country cooking with greens and cornbread. I opted... More

The owner does make perhaps the best fried chicken I have ever had. The buffet does contain some slightly overlooked corn, for the most part the buffet is very good. The potato salad is made correctly & tastes delicious. The greens seemed a tad overdone, but it's a buffet, maybe that's a given. The muffins were stiff, but with adequate... More
