Went three with a group of 6. Meat plus style restaurant or order off a large menu. Had the fried chicken plus two. Everything was very good. Two in our party ordered barbecue chicken and were not impressed with the sauce. Cornbread and deserts were excellent.

The fried chicken is always great. This is always a good choice and a local favorite. They also serve breakfast and is ipen for dinner. The 1 meat and 2 sides is well priced.

Loved this place. Haven't been to one in quite a few years. I was on my way to an appointment with a bit of time on my hands and stopped in. I got a country fried steak with gravy (white gravy with bits of meat--traditional southern fare), eggs over easy , home-fries and a biscuit with coffee. hey don't check... More

Such good southern food and the staff is super nice and friendly. Kids meals were very cheap and got large portions. I ate along with a 12 and 5 year old for less than 16.00.

Everything was cold and I sent back on to see it go into a microwave. I complained to he manager and he said everything always at temp. So I guess I am crazy to think all my food was cold. Not the response I wanted to hear after spending $60 and food could not be enjoyed. Poor service and food.... More

This place always serves up really good food and wonderful service. I ordered grilled chicken with vegetables and was pleased. Michelle is a wonderful server. She was very courteous and prompt with our food. I've ordered everything on the menu and never been unsatisfied. The prices are reasonable and it's over all A really good restaurant.
