First visit and it was excellent.The service was great, had just a minimum wait. There was so much food had to take some home and it tasted just like home style. Loved it.

Very warm, cozy feeling with the best home cooking. Feels like we join Florida's family dinner. Fantastic chicken fried steak...that feeds two. Banana pudding and carrot cake are great. We've been here many times and alternate between ribs, catfish, and specials. Always great food. The self service was fine though we miss the personality of the waitresses with full service.

We almost missed it because it is surrounded by houses on a Farm to Market road. It doesn't look like much on the outside but then again, it doesn't look like much on the inside either. But the food is amazing and the portions are enough to feed two people. My wife had the barbecue chicken, advertised as 1/2 a... More

Florida's home cooking is always spot on. Consistently great fried catfish, chicken fried steak, pies, and cakes. Bbq is good, too. Hubby loves it.

This a local favorite place to eat, tucked away on the backroads between Coldspring and Livingston, Texas. As with many local eating establishments, this one looks plain and rather like an old house (which it was) converted to a family restaurant. The food is very good home-style cooking and the staff is warm, welcoming, friendly, and efficient. The decor is... More

They have changed the set up - you go to the counter and order your food and the service is very slow. Last time I visited it took 20 minutes to order and another 15 for the food to come out. Sides were not hot and the ribs were lukewarm. It's a shame because this has always been our go... More
