This is a hit or miss spot. The food can be really good and the service can be really good--but neither were tonight.

Really good services and friendly. Food comes out on time and for a reasonable price. The steak and chicken fried steaks are my favorite.

We were at Lufkin ' s CP this week for a fun day. Everyone ate different foods and all were so pleased. The waiter was so nice and efficient. Lunch specials were all different and appetizers were on a special price. Easily accessible and reasonably priced.

The Chicken Fried Steak and the Country Fried Chicken is great. We also love the hot bread and the Country vegetables. Don't forget to order Blackberry Cobbler. It's the best!

I enjoyed lunch at this location today with a friend who had recommended it for a "quick" lunch. The service was friendly and the food above average. And, it was "quick" as we were "in and out" in less than 45 minutes. There is a "combo" offering on the lunch menu that is very reasonable and I enjoyed the "turkey... More
