“Fried food fix”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Order the onion rings. And whatever else you are in the mood for cause most all of it is fried. But good! The oysters have been somewhat flattened, then readied for frying. I liked them - the whole oyster was hot & all the breading was done too. The hush puppies were full of flavor with bits of onion in them. If you order a dinner, there are no substitutions. And don't forget, it's cash here. We would eat here again & I would definitely get the onion rings!

“Poor food for your dollar”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Go to higher end restaurant Steak & Shake or Urban Stack. Is comparable to McDonalds $1 menu. Service is ok, but not great. Order mix up was a love. We traded back and forth. Onion rings were a high point. Sorry, no bang for the buck.

“Good if Greasy is Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

Sometimes greasy is good. It has great "diner" atmosphere. Servers were very helpful and nice. Food came out really fast. It seemed very popular. I recommend if you want greasy diner food. Fried shrimp were very big! Good onion rings.
