This place is so good! I got the Spicy Crispy Chicken Sandwich and it was the best chicken sandwich I've ever had...sorry Chick-fil-A. My mom and I shared the Gooey Butter Cake for dessert, and it certainly did not disappoint. That was an excellent meal!

Can’t beat this place for a top shelf experience and great value. Nothing on their delicious menu is priced more than $18 (most items are in the $10 range). The experience rivals comparable places in Dallas that charge double that. The pimento cheese board appetizer...More
