Cheap price, generous portion sizes, and easily the best home-cooked food in northeast Texas! Chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, green beans, and Dr pepper. Yumm!

The mel was ok. Wanted fried fish but told there was a backorder and would be 45 min. The place is crowded as one of the few places to eat lunch locally. THE Price Is 8.00 AND Includes tea. If going there go by 1130am.
