Nicest folks imaginable. The best fried chicken ever. And the butter pecan pie is ridiculously tasty. All comes with the usual culprits: black-eyed peas, mess o' greens, biscuits, ribs, etc. You get the idea. One more thing: Don't come. It's already too popular.

I remember it was fairly early when we got there on a Saturday morning, can't remember exact hours of operation. But they're only open for breakfast and lunch, only accept cash or check.
