If there is a reastaurant that will take you back to another era more than Toot-and-Tell I haven't been there. This is a landmark of Garner. The food is classic old scholl southern restaurant faire. This place really takes me back to my youth growing up in the not so urban South.

If you like southern cooked food, then this should be on top of your list. The breakfast is really good and the lunch/dinner menu's carry traditional southern food. The building is quite old and pretty dingy which really takes away from the experience.

Doesn't get much better than this - food, service top notch - they care about you like you were family when at their restaurant! We had two meals there and will have more anytime we are in the area.

We got the name of this restaurant from the Raleigh visitors guide and were very disappointed. It seemed popular with the locals but we were not happy with the food or the service.

Food was delicious, house has been built on multiple times, so the inside is a little quirky, but fun. Staff was attentive and friendly.

This is a modestly appointed restaurant with a great southern buffet which was priced under $9. With the buffet we also got a bowl of fried shrimp. The staff were very attentive. Since the fried fish at the buffet looked a little overdone, they brought over some fresh fried fish which was tender and excellent. While travelling we like these... More
