“Great Food and Friendly Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

I am traveling on business, I love to find great local restaurants. This is one of them. I ordered my food and it came with two sides. The portions were large. The service was great despite the fact they were celebrating their 3rd anniversary. They were giving 20% off of your check.

They have a large menu to check out so that have item for every member of your family!

“good home cooked food”

the best fried chicken. It takes a minute but it's worth the wait. Lots of good lemonade to satisfy your thirst.
