Ate breakfast here for the first time. My husband's pancakes were the size of his head and so light and fluffy. I had eggs with bacon and grits. Didn't really need extra butter for the grits which is very unusual.

I would not recommend the grits and gravy to anyone counting calories, but to anyone looking for a substantial, delicious meal, this is the place to go. Huge biscuits, hot sausage, eggs, grits, and gravy - and not just sample size! I probably could not...More

I cannot recommend this restaurant. The green beans tasted as if they came from a can. The friend onion rings most likely came from a pre-packaged source as well as the hamburger patty. The trio appetizer probably was not made in house. We will not...More
