Stopped by for an afternoon Lunch and we were not disappointed. The grilled chicken breast was delicious and the buffalo chick wrap was a good choice as well.

Might be one of favorite places to eat. Saw it on Diners Drive ins and Dives. The Chicken n Dumplings are the best I have ever had...hands down. Had hashbrown casserole with it and that is almost as good. They only have the hashbrown casserole on Saturdays. Each meal comes with a biscuit and a deviled egg which sounds strange...but... More

Nothing fancy just good home cooking. Great place for really good food. The vegetable sides are all vegetarian prepared (cooked without meat stock). Worked very well for us my wife being vegetarian.

Wanted to try someplace new or at least new for us for breakfast. Original wanted to try lunch but I had a hair cut appointment at 12:30 so breakfast it was.

If you are traveling through this neck of the woods and you are looking for genuine southern cooking, this is the place.The dining room is sunny, the servers are upbeat, and the food is exquisite! Southern comfort food at its best! Try it.

This is a laid back establishment, but they focus on an enjoyable experience! Very few booths are available, but we were seated at a table and chairs that remained comfortable through the desert. The waitress was knowledgable and helpful, very seasoned and professional. Two of us got the Pot Roast, which was perfectly cooked and lean. The sides were good,... More

Stopped here for lunch on our way through Charlotte. Great southern food, lots to choose from. Fantastic Cajun meat loaf. Had the pimento cheese. They suggested it warmed with pita triangles, definitely the way to go! Fried green tomatoes are delicious! So many great choices on the menu, will for sure go back.

Thank Vicki B
