The food was not bad from a fast food place. It was served hot. It was brought to the table. Tasted fresh. We were pleased. 4 of us at for $43.

My sister and I both ordered a fried fish and fried chicken meal. I would order the chicken again if I would return but I would not order the fried fish.

It has a posted 100 sanitation inspection, which is really good for fast food of any kind. The servers were friendly and accommodating. The fried fish and hush puppies were good for fast food fried fish.
