“Get your country cookin here...”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Get your country cookin here, where you will find many southern favorites such as black-eyed peas, cornbread, greens...etc. Desserts to please as well in this Columbia SC hangout. Multiple locations in the area to choose from and enjoy.

“Not As Good As Wade's”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Typical meat and three sides restaurant -- not as good as Wade's in Spartanburg, SC. Fried flounder and fried catfish tasted good. Can substitute a house salad, which was large, for two sides. Macaroni and cheese was very good; did not care for the raisin/carrot salad.

“Very Disappointed”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

I used to think this place was good but after the last several times I've been I have changed my mind. Nothing seems to be fresh. Today I got the beef stew and I would bet good money that it came from a can. I could have gotten the same thing from a can of Dinty Moore. The cornbread was cold almost stale. It had obviously been sitting out for awhile. The time before I got fried okra and it was cold. I would love to go into the kitchen and see what they actually make from scratch. I would say most if not all vegetables come from a can. This would be a good place for Robert Irvine's Restaurant Impossible show. The food needs a makeover. I won't be going back for awhile.

“Had a very "home-y" feeling!”
Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

This was my first time here, and first impressions of the place reminded me of home. I had the hamburger steak with onions,side orders of macaroni (yummy),side off carrot raisin salad and yams. OMG!!! Great home cooked food and great price!!! A must do again type of affair!
