Just in Louisville for the Breeder's cup. Stopped in for a real home styrl meal. I had a fish sandwich with cornmeal fry that was delicious and surprisingly light. Husband had fried chicken livers he described as "southern fried, light, delicious and unique.". The atmosphere was homey, welcoming and friendly. Very inexpensive! Highly recommend!

Was tipped to this place by some locals while in town. The atmosphere was great and the people very friendly

I was in Louisville for business and ate there one night for dinner. The food was of the sort you'd get at in a high school cafeteria. I doubt that any of it was made fresh - the mashed potatoes and gravy tasted like they came out of a can. Very disappointing. I originally ordered the "freshly made" turkey sandwich but was warned by the server that they no longer cook their own turkey - they just use regular lunchmeat. So I ordered the Salisbury steak instead. Got a log of meatloaf that didn't have any particular flavor at all. The staff was friendly so maybe people go there for the atmosphere. But you'll get better food at Subway.

Great place that's very popular in Louisville. If you have a demanding party of ten take it to Chili's or Applebees.

The place is usually crowded, but the wait is not that long. The atmosphere is awesome and the dining room is upgraded since new management changed 2 years ago (the menu, recipes, and the main cook is the same, the original owner just retired). New owners are great and customer friendly ensuring top service.
The fried chicken is hands down the best I EVER had. Period. All soups are home made and sides are very tasty. Simply awesome homestyle cooking and atmosphere.
Try all you can eat chicken Thursdays (if you don't mind waiting).
Cant miss Louisville restaurant.
