The food was spectacular! I would go here again! Definitely recommend this place! Many people from here have suggested it and I had a recommendation from a local, the catfish, Mac and cheese and sweet potato casserole and I absolutely fell in love!

My friend and I ate here for my birthday. I had an appetizer with red beans and rice and pepper jack cheese in an egg roll wrapper that was delicious. I then had jerk chicken, purple hull peas, sweet potato casserole, and cornbread. It was all so good! I can't wait to go back the next time I'm in town.

Comfort food deluxe. The daily specials are always good, and the chicken fried steak is outstanding.
