Hot, fresh, delicious fried chicken. I don't care for the trend of hot spicy fried chicken (what ever happened to regular Southern fried chicken?) so I order the quarter chicken that is mild. Takes a few minutes because the owner prepares orders as received. A...More

We ordered takeout catfish, shrimp and tenders. Hot catfish was a nice half pound piece of fish. The x-hot shrimp and tenders were truly mouth burners. All the food had good flavor. Great local favorite.
