The Chicken Fried Steak and Ribs were amazing. I also had the Mac and Cheese, Fried Okra and Sweet Potato fires. The blue berry cobbler was excellent as well. Good for a date, business or in big groups.

My mom took me here and I was shocked at the home cooking style that was displayed in each dish I ate. Homecooking is a missed virtue.

Good home cooking. Good wait staff. Reasonably priced. Chicken-fried steak was over battered, with barely any meat.

I visited here with my family after seeing Hoover's on the Travel Channel. I'm embarrassed, becasue I've never heard of Hoover's Cooking and they've been in business for over 15 years! It is truly a local place with some of the best food that we've...More
