You can't go wrong with any choice on their menu ! The collards are delicious as is the country style steak. Or if you want a salad , they have homemade tuna and chicken salads as well. The sweet tea is not too sweet and you really feel the vibe of good old NC cooking !

Been several times through the years. Service is always top notch. Took my two sons to introduce them to molasses with butter on their biscuits. Neither was a fan, but I am. One son did absolutely love the giant pancake with chocolate chips inside. No syrup needed. The link sausage is my favorite, along with the molasses and grits with... More

The State Farmers Market Restaurant filled the bill and my belly! I ordered a BBQ pork dinner with crowder peas and fried okra. All of the items were excellent!... More
