“Not Bad, But Nothing to Write Home About...”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The food was decent and the prices okay. Our servers had a little problem with getting the orders right, but all in all were very friendly and there when we needed them. The restaurant was clean and close to the hotels if you are in town for business, as I was. I would go again and try something else on the menu, but can't give them high marks this time around.

“Yummy for your tummy!”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

My husband and I had chicken with ham and cheese, and baked potatoes stuffed with cheese and bacon. To that I added sour cream and butter. It was great! Their ribs looked wonderful, too. Maybe we'll try them the next time we're in "Mayberry."

“The good and the bad.....”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Lets start with the good....Bailey, our waitress, was super sweet, very friendly, and extremely helpful. I wish all restaurants had a server like her. The restaurant was also super clean!! That also goes a long way with me. That's pretty much where the good stops though.

The bad....the food. I ordered ribs, Mac n cheese and sautéed veggies. The veggies were good although had too many onions in them, the Mac-N-Cheese tasted processed and the ribs were not even warm. The BBQ sauce had a tangy sauce that was just so-so although they were falling off the bone tender...just wish they were warmer. The hush puppies were overly dry and also cold when they arrived. They tasted like they were fried earlier and then stored under a warmer. I tried two bites...couldn't eat any more!

My husband ordered the blackened chicken salad. On the surface, it looked good although upon further review, the salad consisted of iceberg lettuce, literally two pieces of carrot, one tomato piece, a sliver of cucumber, the chicken, and LOADED with two types of onions. The only comment he made was that the chicken itself was good...the rest left a lot to be desired.

On the whole, we were disappointed and will likely not return, even though we do make it to this area several times a year. Too bad we can't take Bailey with us to other restaurants though. She was a gem.

“Just Ok”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Went for dinner on a Saturday night. Pork chops just okay, ribs better. Service ok, waitress nice. Atmosphere seemed too hectic to be an enjoyable place. Took too long for drink refills.

“Good Grub”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

We ate here last night and the food was delicous. We had baby back ribs with cold slaw, beans and hush puppies. The ribs were very tasty and the meat fell off the bones. Their parking sucks but the food was great.
