The food, at best, was just home cooking. Nothing special but good. Decor, non existing, table and chairs in poor shape. The most surprising the was the Price !! Two Tea's, 2 meatloaf dinners and 1 piece off cake (which was very disappointing) cost more than 2 steak dinners with appetizer and two large beers at OutBack.

.....and yes, the service can be spotty (but friendly) at times, but on this day, everything came together. In spite of them being swamped with a party of 30, we were seated after about a 10 minute wait and our order was taken. I had the chicken livers, deep fried to perfection as they always are, and my wife had... More

This is by far the best food I have ever had. All the way from range appetizer to dessert was phenomenal! The fried green tomatoes were perfect in every way, seasoned just right with a crunch and amazing sauce to go with it. The fried chicken was seasoned all the way through and the mushroom gravy on top was hearty,... More

Me and my husband ate here on a Saturday around 5pm. I had the 5 veg plate and he got chicken tenders plate. Every thing was great. I only have 2 problems the collard greens were alittle to salty and the server had too many tables for one person. But she kept up as best she could. Great fried orka.

They really know how to season their vegetables, that is why I usually order a veg plate. The butter beans and carrot souffle are my favorites. The fried chicken is excellent as well, seasoned and battered just right. There has been a lot of turnover there in the two years or so that they have been open. The service is... More

Went for lunch.This is a place that the locals eat so that means it has to be good food. I had the Dirty South Burger which had pimento cheese and a fried green tomato on it. I would recommend it. I will definitely eat there again. I like the fact that they put their daily specials on facebook..

This is a comfort food place, if you are looking for a fancy place, go somewhere else. Another very good Item is the Chicken Salad on a Croissant. It will fill you up. The fried chicken is really some of the best I have ever had even better than Mom's, It is crispy, very good flavor and hot when it... More
