This is not homemade food when the majority of it is pre made & frozen coming in the door. The owner is one of the rudest people I have ever come across. If you question, or have a complaint about their food they get nasty...with you. I absolutely do not recommend this place to anyone.More

If you are Hispanic, do not eat here. We waited 45 minutes for them to come out and say there was a delay in our order because of some made up story only after we asked about our orders. Four tables of groups from 2-4...people came in after us but got served first. Hmm..We paid for our drinks and walked out. Guess you gotta be a certain race to get fed here.More

For what its worth, the owner is married to a Mexican, so this serious accusation you make is quite false. How profoundly pathetic to make such an accusation due to a kitchen error.

I had the hamburger steak. Yum. It came with 2 sides and cornbread, a roll, or biscuits. Had to have cornbread. The waitress was so sweet. When i was leaving, she asked me if I wanted some water to go. Some I drank a lot...of water, she came out with a large cup. People who drank tea were also asked if they wanted tea for the road. There's lots of food selections and some yummy desserts. Reasonable prices and great staff.More

We made a trip to Bellingrath Gardens and hunted for a place close by to get a late lunch. This was rated very high when I searched on TripAdvisor. Well, it was far beyond our expectations! All of our food was hot, plentiful and delicious....We ordered everything from seafood to country fried steak. The staff were so attentive and friendly. We felt right at home! Will definitely go back there whenever we are in the area again!More

Traveling through Mobile on I-10 and heard this was the best country cooking in Mobile--it absolutely lived up to the hype! The fried catfish was lightly breaded, thick, and flaky. The fried green tomatoes were delicious- don't miss the ranch dip! The 1 o'clock burger...was delicious, but I would have preferred a pinker center when I ordered medium. Will definitely return!More

I eat here occationally and the food is usually good. I tried the stack of pancakes this morning for the first time and they are huge! They were good and fluffy too. I hope that they will offer some sort of fruit or Carmel or...some kind of topping (like Ihop) in the future!More

Service was fast and friendly. The place is old and worn and doesn't look very clean. The food was just not good at all. We stopped because we were hungry and liked the name of the place. Very disappointing.

Local, long time neighborhood establishment. We were warmly greeted and prompted seated in a large dining room. they also had a dining room for smokers cause last time I looked, they like to eat at restaurants too. Our waitress was extremely friendly and efficient. We...ate here twice in the last two weeks and both times the meal and service was excellent. we actually came back a 3rd time but they were closed already (on Sunday). We are from out of state and can appreciate the effort now to run and stay in business- especially cause people are being paid to sit home. If you want a good meal at a good price come here. They have a large menu with local favorites like catfish and fried green tomatoes. All the food served was freshly made and the portions were large. Good food, great service and reasonable price.More

We came here for breakfast and arrived a bit before 10:30. The hostess let us pick our table in the non-smoking section. (I can’t believe restaurants in this country still allow smoking.) The waitress came over and took our drink order. When she came by...a minute or so after 10:30, she said they stopped serving breakfast in a very rude tone. We took our coffee to go (pretty nasty by the way) and left.More

A rather self-entitled, pompous review. Yes, we allow smoking, in a separate room with its own HVAC system, so enough of your "how dare all restaurants not follow my desires regarding smoking" diatribe. You arrived at 10:37, not a bit before 10:30 as you stated,...More

After calling the day before making sure the restaurant was open, we arrived about 5 pm. We were rudely greeted by the hostess who pointed to a table and told us to sit there. No one escorted us to the table, so we were unsure...where to sit, so we guessed. After sitting for almost 10 minutes, we saw at least five waitresses with none of them serving us. After us motioning for someone, we finally put our order in. We were never given rolls or cornbread as we saw other tables were. We ordered the customer’s favorite burger, and the “12 hour” savory roast beef. After reassuring with a separate waitress that our order was put in, we received our food in about 10-15 minutes. The hamburger was cooked well and was fresh. The roast beef however, was cold, with no gravy. Honestly, it looked like it was left overs and was just heated up. After trying to eat it, we asked to waitress to take it back. All she did was take it and heat it up again. And she proceeded to tell us that the roast beef doesn’t come with gravy. After discussing with again a separate waitress the awful roast beef, she assured us that they would not make us pay for that meal. Upon leaving, we spoke to the manager who, became angry when asked if he knew what was going on in the kitchen. We told him the roast beef was really bad, and stated that he did not know what was going on in the kitchen. We said to him as a manager you should know what was going on in the kitchen. We couldn’t understand why a restaurant would serve awful roast beef. And then the manager got angry and started yelling. All we wanted was the ticket to pay and leave, but they refused to give us our check. The hostess actually told us to wait until she was ready to give it to us. We left. They followed us out and said we needed to pay the check. We came back in, looked at the ticket, and they were going to make us pay for the roast beef meal after telling us they would take it off. Finally, they took the meal off, we paid and left. To say we will never go back is an understatement. So much unprofessionalism. So rude, and the food was not good.More
