“Tricked by online menu.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Bland chicken past thin, barely seasoned crust. Breast dry. Biscuit straight from package. Husband had fish, which server said was Pollock "just like on Deadliest Catch". What we received was a perfectly rectangular deep-fried plank. Cornbread decent, mac and cheese and pecan pies good, but not enough to bring us back.

“Not much on menu for a vegetarian.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Quantity of food was large portions. Most everything is chicken in different forms. It's a little difficult to find food for the vegetarian in our party.

“Man O Man!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

I love this place. The exterior is pretty soulless, a large aluminum building just off I-37, but the food makes you forget everything else. The chicken reminds me of my mother's, and is unlike any other I've found in restaurants: the crust is both moist and crisp and is a beautiful shade or two deeper than the honey-colored fried chicken that is found everywhere. The meat is perfectly textured and full of flavor. The onion rings,okra, and cornbread were also unlike any other, and also wonderful--you sensed that actual humans had made this food. The service was friendly and helpful. My only complaint about this place is that it's hundreds of miles from my home.

On second thought, and considering my weakness for food like this, maybe it's better that way!
