This is a delightful place run by a delightful young woman named Allison and her family. The food is wonderful and cooked fresh while you wait [best fried squash I have ever had in my 75 years] and the desserts are homemade including the many flavors of fried pies! And so many choices on the menu and on the board.... More

Recommend scheduling so you can stop here for lunch. No chain restaurant will compare. This is real food and real people.

Took a shot in the dark when we saw the highway sign and was really delighted with the food and service. Stopped on our return trip and was disappointed that they were closed. For Father's Day we guessed.

The food was delicious! I had a grilled chicken breast with peaches and cottage cheese. Tasted like we were at a friend's cookout. Two of us got the BBQ pork and my son got the kid's cheeseburger. The people are nice and friendly. The waitress' little boy was adorable and my kids had an awesome time playing with him. Like... More

Was looking for something other than the usual fast food fare off every interstate exit and this place had great reviews so figured I'd give it a shot. So glad I did. I was the last customer before they closed for the night, yet I still felt welcome and service was very friendly. The food was excellent and hit the... More

I love trying new places, especially little local diners. The burger and friend okra was good, but not anything too exciting. However, the Pineapple Upside Down cake was definitely worth the stop. The staff is friendly and the restaurant is cute. Check it out if you are in the area.

Thank Ellen R
