A "must-go-to-place" of you're in the area

We have patronized this restaurant for years. I have always been able to recommend the ribs, catfish, chicken fried steak and hamburgers wholeheartedly. However, the last few times we have visited have been a disappointment as far as both food and service. Guess all good things don't last forever.

I ordered the club sandwich. Imagine my surprise to find barbecue beef on it. Not my idea of a club sandwich. Should have read the FULL description.. He had the special of the day which included links, two sides, lemonade & pecan pie. It was good but not outstanding. Our waitress was friendly but had to be prompted for refills.... More

This place isn't fancy but their ribs are excellent. It's a pork rib with a dry rub, sauce on the side. I can't begin to explain how succulent these ribs are, fall off the bone. You know a place is good when you're planning what your going to have the next time you come. We just found our new favorite... More

Awesome food as usual .... Home cooking with everything from BBQ (that even Vince Wilford would even appreciate), catfish, chicken fried steak, fresh veggies, unbelievable "special" salad(s), daily lunches, thursday rib nite, and more!!!!! As Sly (owner) says..... Best home cookin' since Abe Lincoln was president!

My co-workers love the homestyle cooking, I was not as impressed. The BBQ was dry and overdone. I should have took my co-workers advice and went with the burger.

My wife and I went there with the rest of the family. I had chicken fried steak. She had a bbq potato. The portions were awesome. My food was good but not great. I didn't like my wife's bbq potato but she did. The service was poor. Overall, this place is average. I probably wouldn't go back unless someone took... More

I like absolutely everything on the menu. Ribs are heavenly. Desserts are perfect. Service can be a bit uneven - but mostly adequate to good.
