Comfort food at its best. From chicken and dumplings to pot roast and much more great food reasonably price in a no frills atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit or two or three.

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!

Dish was delicious! It's a little hip, but not unbearably so. It's divided into 2 rooms, front and back (back has bar and bathrooms). We sat in the back and were really comfortable, with plenty of room and lots of good people watching. Our server was professional and friendly. We started with the fried green tomatoes and they were amazing... More

Wanted to get out of Uptown after spending 4 nights here for conference. So glad we went. Delicious food, professional service, nice prices, in a kitschy,offbeat setting. We had the fried green tomatoes appetizer, chicken and dumplings, and the key lime pie. After eating at many places claiming to have "the best key lime pie", look no further-it's here!

My wife and I made our second visit in last several months. We had brisket sliders and BLTG sandwich. We would not order either one again.. Key Lime pie was very good.
