My husband and I took our daughter there on a Saturday afternoon for the first time. We were not happy about the inappropriate super loud music playing. You could barely talk to one another. Also, we don't let our 12 year old listen to "I wanna sex you up" and all of the other gangster rap music that was playing.... More

We don't usually go for lunch because the wait time is long and this wss no exception. Lots of staff, long wait to give our order, long prep time in spite of ordering salad and chicken salad sandwich. The smell of cleaning supplies or stale standing water was off putting. The decor is getting grubby and the table cloths need... More

I had lunch here last week with a co-worker visiting our business. He wanted southern cooking so we gave it a try. He said the fried chicken was the best he had ever eaten anywhere. It came with 2 sides and he was really full when we finished. I had a vegetable plate and had plenty of sides to choose... More

Took my inlaws and family to eat here. Heard about the place and wanted some good home cooking. No wait time and the atmosphere surprised me. From the outside you see a big grey building but the inside was brought and decorative. Old records covered the walls along with the original art work for the records. Service was awesome, food...

Saturday afternoon, sunny, felt the need for some southern comfort food. Checked tripadvisor as we always do when going to a new restaurant. We were not disappointed. I had the vegetable plate with cornbread. Husband had the special, cabbage roll, with sweet potatoes and cornbread. We shared my fried green tomatoes. He thought the cabbage was a little tough.

I always forget about this place because it is slightly off the beaten path for me. They have wonderful chicken tenders and waffles. Everything we got was very good and it is great to have something to choose from that most restaurants don't have. The portions are good and the staff is very friendly.

The food at Salt-n-Pepper was absolutely fantastic. My friends had the chicken and waffles, and swore they were some of the best they've ever had. I had a chicken dinner with Mac-n-cheese and greens, and was blown away. That fried chicken just hit the spot and the sides were excellent. All served in a friendly, cute, but no-frills atmosphere.
