We visit at least 3 times during a 5 day visit. We love the pork chops and all the veggies. Everyone seems really nice.

Went here on Sunday with family. We all had the turkey and dressing. Heavy salt, but otherwise, very good. I had the peach cobbler and others had the strawberry shortcake. That's why we keep coming back, all was very tasty, very Southern.

The people were very nice, it has the typical cafeteria atmosphere. Everything is a la carte so it can add up before you realize it. I got the Turkey and dressing which was good, the green beans were ok, but the peas w/ potatoes could have used some seasoning. I will go back to try the fried catfish.

There are daily specials that are simply delicious. The chicken is to die for and finger licking good! Have eaten lunch there on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed!
