“Best fried chicken”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

A nice variety of chicken - fried and smoked. The breakfast burritos are very good. The fried chicken is the best I have found in town

“Get it smoked!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

I always enjoy their food.
It's cheap and abundant.
I go to the Lomas Ave. location every other week before my radio show and get a
Rib Plate. The ribs and some of the chicken is slow smoked leaving the meat tender
with a great smokey flavor.
The sauce is served on the side, not slathered during the cooking process, so as to
suit your individual taste.
A new side dish that I love are the green beans. A bit overcooked but they've added
some pork which gives it a great southern-style taste. Not for the vegitarians but great
home-style food.

“Good reliable place”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

Family run and everyone is so nice. They must treat their employees well because we've been going there for 8 years several times a year and most faces are familiar with the servers. Id reccomend breakfast mostly though. They run some great specials Monday thru Friday with like 8 choices and prices range between $3.99 and I think $6-$7. Atmosphere is not great..run down a bit etc but don't let that deter you.

“Has been arounf for decades”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

The last time (and the few times I went while in college) were all the same.....dirty buildling, bad parking and stinky atmosphere...like rancid oil. The food is not good. Keep driving.....I think it might be good for or during a night of partying for the frats and soroties.
