“Wonderful meal, wonderful cause!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Honestly, I had one memorable meal here! And to think that it is a non-profit that employs underprivileged people is really mind blowing. The venue is very attractive. The menu is not too large and features fresh, regional produce. I opted for a traditional "meat and three" entree. The white meat fried chicken was delectable, the coating light and crisp. My sides were roasted beets, Mac and cheese and collard greens. Served with a piece of cornbread. The vegetables were flawless. The dessert banana pudding was presented in a glass with a browned meringue topping. Even the vanilla wafers were baked in house! I took a slice of Carmel layer cake to go. ( Usually served with coffee ice cream) it was wonderful too!
You can make a donation to their charitable organization when you pay your bill if you wish and the donation comes with a reward, depending on the amount
I wish I had discovered this spot at the beginning of my stay in town. I am sure breakfast would have been amazing too
One of the best meals I've ever had!

“Weekend Trip”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Had a great meal at this restaurant, and we chose it based solely on location (It was close to our hotel). The best part is that part of the meal is donated to a charity. Great southern food & definitely a place I would return to.

“Meat and Two Sides with a Smile”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

The menu is typical southern "meat and two sides", but the quality is better than most and the service is great. If you didn't know the story behind the restaurant, you would definitely think it was a for-profit restaurant. I have eaten here a number of times and always had an excellent meal.

“Excellent Concept!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

This was a truly one of a kind experience! I absolutely loved the concept of supporting local farmers, doing good in the community and employing those trying to get back on their feet. The food was also excellent! Best pan fried chicken I've ever had! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a unique experience.
