“Long Wait”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Have a friend who loves this place. Eats chicken fried steak every time. Place is OK but not worth a long wait.

“Chicken Fried”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Food was good, the pie was great. The chicken fried steak had more breading than I like but was good, fries and gravy were great. Service was very good(teamwork)

“This place is a winner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

This is a neighborhood restaurant that still does things the old fashioned way--they make your meal when you order it! Everything is delicious--no wonder Guy Fieri from the Food Network came in person to review them.

“Great home cooking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Loved the fish and chicken fried steak. The coconut crime pie was wonderful. Go early because it is very crowded.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Best Chicken Fried Steak in town, Gotta get the Onion Rings, Seafood Platter is a super suprise. I also love the good old Texas enchiladas. Get there early and save room for the pie!
