The food here is as good as that cooked at home. The prices are very fair and the employees are great country people. Would highly recommend.

I had meatloaf, zipper peas and cheese grits. My better half had chicken livers, okra and rutabagas. The basket of cornbread and biscuits were served right up and the tea was sweet. We'll be back. Photo is from right when we started digging in.
