We came for lunch on a Sunday. They have the regular menu each day along with a special mostly for $10.95-$11.95 . The real treats at this restaurant are the home made vegetables. The fresh cut collard greens were some, if not the best that...More

A very decent southern style family meal. The broasted chicken is very tender and comes bursting hot to your table. The daily side choices include veggies, fruit, cornbread. The pies are homemade and the coconut cream pie was outstanding. Our waiter, Cory, was extremely efficient...More
