The wife is crazy about this place. We usually make it on a Saturday. She has the burger and I either have the red beans and rice or chicken fried steak. Never any complaints. Lots of great food!!

Not OMG great but overall good. Great service. I had Jalapeño chicken sandwich and hubby had chicken fried steak. Onion rings can be skipped, no real flavor(needed salt and pepper or something added). We'd come back.

The red beans and rice is delicious! Great sausage! Spice level was just perfect. The side salad - usually bland at most restaurants - was incredible, too. Can't wait to go back soon.

For me, it was too crammed together, the dishes were overpriced, and the staff was none too friendly.

Unless you are looking for this place or already know about it, one would not be aware that this gem even exists.
