GREAT family restaurant in a good location on Hwy 59. Many menu choices with reasonable prices but the overall family atmosphere and the thowed rolls and the pass arounds make it ideal for a family meal while visiting the area.

Cash and personal checks only accepted. The food is average to above average, the portions are huge, and the FUN is dished around the clock. Pass me the bread and out of no where here comes a piece flying threw the air. My family loved it!

It was a very nice moment with my family, the waiters was very friendly and the throwed rolls are awesome! The room is huge and well decorated. I look forward to returning!

My wife and I had lunch here. The food is good, home cooked style, the portions are large. In addition to the food you order, they have people going around offering other options, yeast rolls (which they throw to you), fried potatoes, macaroni with tomatoes and okra. You will leave here having eaten too much. But is is a fun... More

The food was taste, great amount, and the entertainment is more food. You eat the sides and take your entry home. They serve extra fried potatoes, boiled cabbage, fried okra, and other southern side dishes as you try to eat your entry. Now I know why Alabama locals are SOOO fat.

This was really a bucket list item for me. I saw this restaurant on tv before and just had to get here. It was everything I hoped for and more. The food and staff were awesome. I caught my first throwed roll from about 20 feet. Price is right because of the amount you can eat. Will be back next... More

Had to wait 15 minutes to get seated. Waitress was efficient, but I felt rushed to leave (perhaps because I was a table of one?). Food came out so quickly it had to have been precooked, but it was still tasty. Got beamed in the forehead by a throwed roll, making my trip complete.

Home of the Throwd Rolls. Hot rolls as many as you can eat, they don't serve them they throw them to you and you better be ready to catch em. Very good menu variety wise and in between your catching the rolls you can have a variety of pass arounds, you won't leave hungry. There is a very nice gift... More

Hubs & I enjoyed our visit so much we made sure to go back the next week before we left town. Best suggestion I can give is to go for lunch.... You will have plenty to heat up for dinner that night if you're even hungry by then. The "Pass Arounds" are enough on their own. We will be back... More
