We stopped in at Calico County for some home style cooking. We had the chicken n dumplings and pot roast. Both were very good and so was the service. We definitely recommend this spot.

Great fried barbecue ribs! We both ordered the ribs with two sides and it was delicious! Chris was our server and he couldn't have been more friendly or eager to please. We will be back when we return in November.

Love the fried chicken livers. They are the best in town. Lots of good sides to go with your entre that include baked squash and broccoli rice casserole to name a few. The complimentary cinnamon rolls are very tasty.

I've been here at least two dozen times and never had gone away hungry or displeased. It can get crowded at times but that's more of a sign of how good it is.

This is a very good restaurant for good home cooked type meals. The food is good and the cinnamon rolls are amazing. We have eaten here several times and will continue to go back.
