I was craving chicken and dumplings so I came here. Dumplings were tender but the broth was glutinous, almost a gel, and very little chicken in it. Too much black pepper for my taste. Fried okra was hot and crisp. Blackeyed peas were actually purple...More

Quick, friendly and accurate service. Good food. It's a good alternative to cooking if you watch portions. I add a third veg (only $0.99!) and then split it into two meals.

This restaurant is a fun place to eat! Their menu also offers nice variety to choose from. I ordered fried catfish (fixed perfectly!). So was their fried okra and nice assortment of dinner rolls and cornbread muffins. Our server, Donna was attentive and friendly.

I got the country fried steak and it had more batter than steak. Wasn't too pleased. Everything else was good

The rolls were fresh from the oven - and wonderful. Everything else was almost back up to the normal quality. :-)

Was looking for a healthy plate lunch. The salad and rolls were good. However, the squash didn't even resemble squash. It tasted like burnt mush. Turnip greens were overlooked and had no flavor. Chicken was hard and over seasoned to disguise the plain juiceless meat....More

At my last visit, the cabbage was overcooked (mushy). Guess they've changed the kitchen staff as well as the counter staff. Hopefully they'll get back up to their usual standard soon.

Dropped in for a quick supper with family. Had a couple of their entrees. Well cooked and tasty with the usual veggies.
