We have had one meal here so far, which we enjoyed. The food was good, fresh, and pleasantly served. We will go back.

Now in Lansing. Basically a sandwich shop, but they do those well. They have a small indoor seating area, but their main business is take out.

We were hoping for a Southern home cooked dinner but it was not to be. The fare was very generic and not very tasty. It took forever to get our food and it wasn't worth the wait. The waitress was very friendly but she was the only one for quite a few people. The only entertainment was the fly buzzing... More

....and heavy on the grease. Low quality, unimaginative food at a correspondent price. On the other hand, the old people locals love the biscuits and gravy here. If that's not a warning, I don't know what is.

If you're looking for "home cooking" this is the place. You'll get your week's worth of cholesterol and then some here. Try not to let the local customers scare you!

We eat breakfast there on Saturday mornings when we visit the Farmer's Market on the opposite side of the street. My eggs are always cooked perfectly and the browned country gravy over the perfectly made biscuits is to die for.....but......they just can't get the service part of it right. Every time we have eaten there only half of the seats... More

They try their best here, but it is sometimes great, and sometimes just so-so; so call a head to see what they will be serving that day! The waitresses provide fast & friendly service.

the food was NOT worth the money, unless you like food from a microwave. Never a good sign when you can hear the microwave while you're sitting in the dining room. But, GREAT customer service.
