“Best d@mn Fried Shrimp I've ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2012

This little restaurant/bar might seem like a hole in the wall but the servers are great and it's a welcome surprise to find standard fare excel, out in the middle of what feels like nowhere.

They don't put a heavy breading on the Shrimp, it's dusted in some cornmeal/flour with incredible spices (Louisiana style w/o being too spicy) and you can see AND taste the shrimp. If I could learn to do this at home I'd never order this out again.

They also do magnificent hand cut fries with the order and it's about 8 bucks. Simply a must try but prepare to develop an addiction.

They also feature different food specials thru out the week like all you can eat St. Louis style Ribs on Thursdays and free Taco night on Tuesdays in the bar from 4-7pm. Great beer/well drink specials accompany.

HOURS OF OPERATION:

Monday - Friday open from 11:00am to close
Saturday & Sunday open from 9:00am to close
Breakfast served every day until 2:00pm

“Great Beef Brisket, Cole Slaw and Sweet Potato Fries”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

We all 4 had Beef Brisket and enjoyed it with cole slaw and then either baked potato or sweet potato fries. There were other options for sides but the 4 in our party enjoyed those options. While this restaurant has a small town ambiance the food was great with nice portion size. The men had garlic chicken with their brisket and everyone mentioned the food was tasty. It's a short drive from Salem but worth a stop for a little variety in your life.
