“Down home cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Very good country cooking and great friendly service. Breakfast is just normal bacon, eggs, biscuits. Lunch is different each day... a choice of meat and several veggies. I have never had anything that was not good. We go often for lunch.

“Nothing to write home about....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

I have heard about this place and how breakfast was legendary... Maybe i was expecting more, but it was nothing to write home about it. One thing worth mentioning is the service and the friendliness of the staff were excellent.

“Get there at 11:00 for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Very dependable, quick and good "meat and three" country cooking restaurant. It is always packed, so get there at 11:00 for an early lunch, I usually try to get there just a few minutes before that. Beat the crowds and the parking is easy.

“If you don't mind a crowd...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

This is a good place - always packed. Down home cooking - very good. Sweet tea - just right. Help very efficient. Tough to find parking.

“Good home cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Very good plate lunches, like your mom's home cooking. It's normally pretty crowded at lunch, so go very early or late.
