We ordered 3 lunch specials and 2 kids meals. The bbq ribs were amazing but it was a small portion for lunch. The fried chicken was the best I've had by far, incredibly moist and the skin had a great flavor. The fried catfish is was delicious too! Very moist! The food was a hit with my 2 picky children,...

I enjoy the food every time I go, my favorite is the smothered fried pork chops, yams and fish and chicken. I encourage every one throughout California to come out and enjoy the southern style cooking you want be disappointed, even though this restaurant is in Cali, I think the south would appreciate the taste, The atmosphere is very pleasant...

This is the best soul-food I've had in years! Quality and delicious food in an ambient atmosphere everyone will enjoy. I met the owner whose family roots is from Texas and Louisiana. This is an outstanding choice for families or business groups.

Great place to have sorter foods. Local friend brought us there. It was Sunday lunch time so many people are enjoying generous portion authentic food. We ordered Fried Chicken Family meal for three adults and yet they are plenty- it was the best I have ever had! For side, we had candied yams and Collard Greens. Both are really good.... More

Great food, family owned and fast service. Come to this restaurant almost every other month to join a group of retirees from work and hang out. Not had a bad meal yet.

Enjoy this place. Been going for years. Much improved on speed of service, but some things are fried on order. Used to only enjoy the fried chicken. It was so good I never wanted to change. But then I moved on to the pork chops and that became my new favorite. This past year I tried the short ribs. They... More

The customer service drove us out before we even got a chance to be seated. They tried to seat us elbow to elbow with another customer who was eating and when we suggested a table we wanted they denied us. They claimed we couldn't sit there because "what if" a bigger party came when the place was not even close... More

We have been going here for some time and have had consistently good meals. Back to the food in a minute. The service can be slow at times but we are warmly greeted like family. I will say that I have seen people get attitude from the folks behind the counter/kitchen area. Something they should work on. The customer should... More

Our greeting at the door was warm, inviting, and we appreciated the time the owner spend going over the menu. If you are looking for comfort food, go no further. Two of us had blackened catfish and others had fried chicken. The fish was seasoned and cooked to perfectly, and the taste was great. The fried chicken was one of... More
