“A little pricey; but, well, worth it!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

Lunch is delicious and served fast. Daily lunch specials and when Ms. Liz makes a cake, you can be sure it will be Delish!! The Gumbo is a light brown and you cannot beat the chicken and sausage gumbo. Potato salad is so gooood!! Try it all. You will not be disappointed; but, lunch will be about$9 with tea. closed on Saturdays....lunch ONLY !!

“Mushy Food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2012

I'm not a fan of mushy food. The menu has gumbo and something different every day but the preparation seems like the food sits for a long time before it is served.

“Horrible food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2011

I had shrimp stew with fried fish. I didn't receive any fried fish even though I paid for it. The potato salad tasted like it was bad. The stew was artificial gravy and tasted horrible. My co-workers got a hamburger and it was a frozen patty. They didn't like it.
