The biscuits are like grandma's. The southern gravy is yummy!! The streak-o-lean a bit salty but I like it like that. Eggs done right. Coffee piping hot. Juice tasted like it was just squeezed. An all around good meal.

Good food. The meatloaf was a generous portion and tasted great. Melt in your mouth biscuits and better than grandma's friend okra. Friday night gospel. Always crowded so go early. Locals favorite.

I had 3 regional sales people working with me. I recommended a restaurant with great home cooking. Everyone loved it! I had chicken salad, cole slaw, beans and corn bread! Three people had and LOVED the banana pudding!

When we are traveling back from anyplace south of Atlanta (expect on Sundays when they are closed) this is now a must stop as we are easing up Interstate 75. Lots of good southern comfort food, reasonably priced and served with a smile.

After visiting lake Altoona, went to Dougs for lunch. You have the option of selecting a meat and one- three sides each matched with a corresponding price. The barbecue chicken served as a half was both moist and plentiful. I did not like the green...More
