“Stay away”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Unbelievably bad bar-b-que and this in the south. We had lunch with the family, three ordered bar-b-que and the others something else. The bar-b-que had been warmed over until it was uneatable. Our grandson had a hamburger and was ill after eating only a couple of bites. We would definitely not return to this place.

“Long wait”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Not a real café more like a gas station with a grill. Had about 8 orders waiting in line ahead of us and only 1 cook!

“Definitely worth the stop”
Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

We stumbled into this place on a motorcycle trip in need of gas. Once we filled up we stayed for lunch. Lunch was very good Fried okra hand battered and done just right and the pulled pork is just to die for. What a beautiful place - sitting on the front porch chatting is an experience that can't be missed.

“Lunch after rafting”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

Cafeteria style located at a gas station. The food was actually pretty good and great location for right after rafting on the Upper Pigeon River.
