They stopped serving steak biscuits, my favorite. Service was so-so. Food quality has gone downhill since Keith is gone. Easy to tell he was the secret to success

Last 2 times getting biscuits they were well over baked, the tops were dark brown. The tenderloin and bacon biscuits are extremely greasy. They got my order wrong so make sure you check your order before leaving.

This place is the go-to restaurant in Thomasville. It’s a local hot spot. Staff is friendly and the food great! (If you can overlook what seems to be 3rd world infrastructure.)

Best tenderloin biscuit ever! Always hot and delicious and did I say HUGE! My husband likes the hash rounds but the tenderloin biscuit is so big you don't really need anything else. The drive thru line is often long but they move you through quickly.

The tenderloin biscuit is the star, but the crispy bacon is delicious as well. We eat breakfast here at least once a week. The dining area needs a revamp, but it's not a deal-breaker.
