Great Food! Even Better Great Service!

We walked in the door and were instantly greeted. The food was fantastic! The tea and lemonade was to do for! There were five of us and we got a gallon of sweet tea and a gallon of lemonade to share (it's cheaper that way). They even refill your tea and lemonade when they get half empty. For sure... read more

They closed early! They locked the door in our face as our family approached the door. They laughed at us as they closed early. VERY RUDE! Will not return

Don't see what the hub bub is all about. Or why it ended up on food network. I went around 3pm. Order took forever, food was warm, not hot, and it tasted mediocre. Probably wont go back unless someone else pays for it.

Great service. Great fried chicken. Only reason for not giving ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸis that the sides were not that great. Overall worth the stop.

Okay, so go ahead and get out of the car; I was nervous but I quickly went to the door, went inside, tried to turn around, but my co-workers wouldn't let me. I am truly glad they didn't! Everything was excellent! Chicken is to die for -- even the grilled cheese was good. Yep, I ate a WHOLE lot. Customer... More

Excellent fried chicken...could not stop dipping it in the sweet spicy mild sauce! Lou was in for a short time and the whole staff was very friendly and inviting!

I am not a huge fried chicken fan, but I will be returning here! The chicken is pretty damn good. We had the homestyle seasoning, but I would like to try the spicy. As for the sides, everything is just ok...except for the carrots! Amazing!

I saw this place on Triple D's (Diner's Drive-Ins & Dives) and decided to go on my upcoming business trip. My co-worker accompanied me. We were a little 'thrown off' with how the place was set up--only because we thought that we would get to sit our lazy selves down and order. But, you order and pay at the counter... More
