This place is great !!!! They have home made food that is really good. I had the burger deluxe platter very good. I saw the specials that looked good too. They also have good iced tea. The price is not really bad.

Filthy , service sucked .health inspector would close it down. So disappointed. Needs a makeover yesterday. The oil they are frying everything in is brown. That should tell u a lot. The dishes have been used to much. The silverware is gross

Great Mom & Pop restaurant. They have daily fresh seasonal veggies. The chicken pastry is awesome with hushpuppies. Oh, the pies and cobblers are fabulous!! Make sure you get dessert before you leave.
