“Homey restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Food was cooked just right and very down to earth. For example the greens were cooked done, not half raw like a lot of other restaurants. I took my leftovers home and they were even better the next day than they were the day before. Not for people who want fine dining.

“Poor service and cold food.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

The waitresses forget about and do not check on the table. Had to ask for refills and our order was wrong with cold Mac and cheese (did not order Mac and cheese). The chicken sandwich was basically a cold chicken tender on a bun. The waitresses ask you to seat yourself then we were berated by locals because we took their spot. Not a do over....

“Terrible food and service...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2011

We had the worst experience in years eating here. The fried chicken was still frozen (not fresh-we asked), the meat loaf was horrible, the flounder and crab cakes were okay and the chicken fried steak was not too good either (brown gravy, not white gravy). Service was not good, waitress obviously had not much experience, she did not get 3 out of 6 orders correct. We will not go back to Debbie's Kitchen again.

“Great Food Just Like Mom's!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2011

Great place to relax and have a wonderful home cooked meal, whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner. It has a family atmosphere and the staff and owners are just wonderful.

“Home cooking? Not!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2010

"Debbie" would like you to think that this is home cooking, but where my home is home cooking means more than opening a can or taking something out of the freezer.
If you like bland and average food you'll like it here. The homemade desserts come from Sam's Club or the freezer....and really even the biscuits and rolls are frozen.
