I went there because of triple D featured them on their show. Guy raved about the country ham and biscuits. So I ordered two country ham biscuits. the ham was so salty I could not get past the first bite. when I called the waitress over to let her know that the ham was too salty for me to eat... More

We’ve been going to this diner for breakfast for years. It has a great retro feel. The servers all seem to have been there for years and they are friendly and quick. We hardly ever stray from the skillet country ham which is rich and has a great salty tang. The grits and biscuits are also very good. One of... More

Breakfast was very good. Very southern. Biscuits also good. Atmosphere is even better. As other have said, seems like a time machine has taken you back to the 1950s in the old South. Staff friendly and service was prompt. Everybody needs to eat here at least once.

You probably haven't even seen it as you drive to downtown Atlanta but trust me, you won't forget it once you eat there. Simple and modest yet one of the best places we have ever been for breakfast, don't let the exterior fool you, it is honestly worth it. I recommend getting up early so you won't be standing in...

I absolutely love this place and will patronize every time I am in Atlanta. A gem of a restaurant that has amazing country ham and red eye gravy. The experience is like stepping into a time machine and going back to the 50's for breakfast. Momma never fixed it like this! Wonderful place!

We ate here because we saw that it was on Guy's Dine-in, Diners, and Dives. How pleasantly surprised that the man that runs it with his wife, was a student at the college where we work! Small world! And the food was good, too! We ate breakfast there. And then shared a piece of pie!

This was a find from the Food Network as this diner has been on Guy Fieri's Diners Drive-ins and Dives. We had Country Fried Steak and Corn Beef Hash with eggs, grits, biscuits & gravy, and the kids had waffles. My mouth waters just thinking about how yummy this was!

Heard about this cool little retro diner on the Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Tried a little bit of everything and it was all quite good. Coffee was excellent. Our server was superb! We'll definitely be back to check out their lunch menu - especially the desserts!

The best part about having a meal here is to experience this very cozy, truly retro diner. The space is tight and the booths for two are teenie weenie. Service is good from the seasoned staff. The food is fine and the fried catfish strips and fried okra were quite good. Just o.k. but serviceable were the meatloaf (end piece,... More
