Tired of fast food? This place will give you a great home cooked meal, with turkey as main item and get you re-fueled and back on the road. On a trip to the beach, I love to make a quick stop for an open faced turkey sandwich with cornbread dressing and cranberry sauce.

We were traveling through and stopped to eat here and we are super glad we did. The Turkey was good but the dressing and gravy. cheese and Mac, and mashed potatoes were great!!! Why stop at a fast food joint when you can have a good food for a little more. It is what it is... thanksgiving in June.

Just a little restaurant with turkey on the menu -- salads, sandwiches, wraps and dinner. Turkey is moist and tender. Sandwich size depends on the type of bread you request. Turkey dinner is a plate of carbs, but very tasty; and they serve real iced-tea, not an instant or "fresh-brew" concentrate. Rather than heading for chains or fast food, we ate lunch and our dinner there during our one-night stay in Greenville.

I decided to grab a to go sandwich from this place. Very disappointing. Very small sandwich, flavorless turkey and over priced.

Other contributer's correct that this is the best (and arguably only) option along I-65, between Montgomery and Pensacola for decent highway food (note the alternatives ain't much). We stop here mainly for that reason and our long-standing, steadfast principle to avoid patronizing any/all large corporate chain "stores", with their predictable menus and disaffected, uninterested employees. This is a family-owned establishment that provides 'something different' and is at least as good as anything else along this strip of interstate. Nothing fancy, a quick-turn, and good food... just an old-school highway restaurant.
