Really great, crispy fried chicken. The potato salad and fried okra were great too. Busy place with limited seating just FYI.

Good burgers, fried chicken & more. I do recommend this place. Always busy so you know it’s good. If you don’t want fast food but don’t want to cook, then pick something from Mama’s!!!
