The food here is pretty good. My husband I first came after an episode of Drivers Diners And Dives. Love the Salmon Cakes!!! Parking can be tight especially on a Saturday.

Went here tonight with my husband and a friend for the first time. Was really wanting to try the deviled eggs, but they don't have them right now. The food was great! I had the chicken and dumplings with collards. The collards were a little tough, but still good. Husband had the smokehouse burger and said it was really good.... More

We decided to eat here last night and were very excited after reviewing the menu which consists mainly of southern, soul food. There was no organization as we walked in the front door which is right by the food expo window and we felt very in the way while we waited over 5 minutes to be greeted. Once we were... More

You will be amazed at the variety offered to you when you open the menu;something for everyone including Vegans (my youngest daughter!). Only place in Charlotte that keeps grilled chicken livers on the menu at all times...yum! No matter what, you have to try their creamed cauliflower...I stole their recipe and use it whenever I can! Like it or not,... More

Everything we ate was perfect and delicious! This is a Charlotte gem! The chicken pesto pita is delicious as well as their daily specials. Will return again!👌🏼

Parking is a little tricky, but that's the whole Plaza Midwood area on a Saturday night! We had an appetizer of fried green tomatoes; cajun meatloaf with mashed potatoes and green beans; and salmon cakes with smashed sweet potatoes and mac and cheese. The dill sauce with the fried green tomatoes was good, but I've had better tomatoes (the one's... More

Great scratch made food. Fried green tomatoes are incredible. Biscuits are a flaky and delicious. Service is friendly and helpful. This is the kind of place we like to bring our out of town visitors.

Nothing fancy or pretentious but at the same time high quality comfort food that is a step above your average diner in quality. Great prices, great (ie huge) portions. It was packed for a good reason. The only downside is trying to park in this neighborhood but certainly worth it!
