Breakfast

An abundance of food! The ham is wonderful! Would have loved just ham and biscuits! Eggs with cheese just ok. Relaxing breakfast

We were looking for a good southern breakfast passing through Memphis. The service was quick and friendly food was pretty good. Lots of beautiful animal art on the walls I'm guessing from local artists. Wasn't quite the authentic southern meal I'd hoped for....meaning I think the gravy came out of a box but the biscuits were good.

Be hungry when you arrive, leave in a wheel barrow if you can.(it is not provided, but I did ask). They have any kind of breakfast food in huge helpings for a great price. Open seating, nice service, and interesting art work by a local artist.

Such a nice vibe here. Fried chicken was wonderful. Very good sides, the turnip greens were the best I have ever had.

When we arrived (Saturday morning) we found the parking lot to be full. This disappointed me, as I thought our wait for a table would be substantial. But, we were seated within 15 minutes and our server promptly took our order. Our meals came with fresh biscuits and gravy. I had the Western omelet, and my husband had the bacon... More

We stopped by while running errands - I love diners and this was disappointing. When shown to the table the chairs were sticky to the touch when we pulled them out. The walls/corners need paint and walls need a good scrubbing. The ladies room was gross. The faucet needs to be replaced and the doors to the stalls should be... More

The only reason I am not giving an excellent is the facility itself. We were in a booth with tattered seats and the wall needed washed badly! (Hot sauce, gravy and ketchup splatters). The food however, was we excellent! The biscuits were fresh, fluffy and HOT! The gravy was a little thinner than I am used to and a tad... More
