I believe that the sign in their parking lot that says " Don't even think of parking here" accurately portrays the attitude of the restaurant. To advertise that you have "fried chicken" to anyone born in the south means that you have chicken that looks like chicken (i.e. pieces with bones) not deep fried chicken tenders. Blackberry cobbler with no ice cream should be a crime!
For something positive...the vegetables were seasoned somewhat.

The restaurant is open Thursday night (general buffet); Friday night (seafood buffet or menu orders), and Sundays for lunch. People drive for miles and join local Jeffersonians to enjoy the Southern menu. Location is a little remote; but parking lot is usually full. Have been going there for years (several times per month); never disappointed.

Saturday before Memorrial Day we drove from Atlanta only to arrive to find the parking lot empty and a little sign on the door that they were closed Memorial Day Weekend all three days! They have a Web Site but it said nothing that they were closed over the Memorial Day weekend. With the price of gas so high this hurt ... and we were forced to eat at a sub par restaurant in Commerce. It would be easy enough to add a line on the web site under operating hours Closed Memorial Day Weekend. Would have appreciated this courtesy.

We heard about this place from a friend and went on Thursday night to try it out. We loved it! The food on the buffet brought back so many memories for my husband of his grandmothers southern cooking. The food is fried and buttered, but it is GOOD! The price can't be beat, total bill for 2 adults/2 children was $25. The fried catfish was delicious, we will be trying the seafood buffet night soon.

The food all tasted bland and seemed to be fresh out of the freezer. Check was 55$$ for three of us and they refused to give me a to go cup for my tea without charging me 70 cents! They refill your tea with carafes that have been sitting on other folks tables, so i suppose it was for the best. Atmosphere great inside very family old home feeling right down to the nasty smelling chicken farm across the street
