“Good old southern cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

If you are looking for unpretentious homestyle southern cooking this is the place. It is in the old Jimmy's location and is run by Cassandra Johnson formerly of Cassandras on Harrison Avenue. In addition to a great buffet which always includes fried chicken they have a regular menu. The whole catfish are to die for as is the tomato gravy for breakfast biscuits.

“Great Gizzards”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Some of the best food in the world is fried right here in the South. I had been searching for a place that served fried gizzards. They were fabulous. The salad my daughter had looked pretty good too, but after a long search, i deserved a reward. Fried just right. Big plate full, and to make it super sinful i ordered french fries. Highly recommended!
