Love their menu. Plenty of choices to suit just about anyone. Small quaint place. Nothing fancy but kept in good condition.

The reviews said that the burger was great so I tried it - what a disappointment. It cost me $11 for burger and sweet potato fries with NO drink. There was nothing special about the burger at all - really - at all. The movie memorabilia is cool but from a one time food sample - won't go back again.

Good clean place. Service was very good and the food was very good. Have a large menu from hamburgers to catfish and a lot in between. A good place to stop for a meal, just pull off Hwy 71 for a quick stop for food.

Very large number of menu options with an outstanding beer selection and great ambiance. You really cannot go wrong with anything on the menu but I always enjoy the fish tacos and their burgers are outstanding. The owner is a great local community activist as well.

Stopped in here on long walk around town & enjoyed great local beer & some chips with a variety of dips---salsa, guacamole. Great atmosphere & burgers I saw looked really good.

Ate there twice and got sick both times! The second time I had to go to the hospital. Can't believe I was dumb enough to go back the second time.

We have eaten here several times and are never disappointed...lots of menu choices which are all good, cold drinks, serve yourself soft drinks and tea. And of course, it is interesting to look at the props and articles the owner saved from the various movies filmed locally, which are numerous. In good weather, the outdoor seating is a great place...

In town to visit family and friends. I've eaten here before and it was still good. My Mom had the catfish po'boy with fried okra. A tasty sandwich that's big and served hot. The fried okra was also very good, crunchy with excellent flavor. My sister and nephew had cheese burgers. A decent size patty and sandwich overall. My sisters... More
