“Not sure we will be back.”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

We were eager to see what the hype was about because it was listed as one of the top 100 places to eat in Alabama. Glad we had the experience but not sure we will return.

I had the open face turkey sandwich and my friend had the turkey dinner. Honestly, we felt like we were eating school lunch. Turkey was drowned in gravy so you couldn't really tell if it was good. Food was served on paper plates and the servings were not that large for the prices paid.

Overall, we were disappointed.

“Turkey dinner all year round”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

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.

“Good food at a reasonable price.”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

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.

“Turkey Turkey”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

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.
