Ordered the daily special, baked chicken breast, stuffing, mac n cheese and kale slaw. My boyfriend ordered an angus beef burger with fries and a side of rice with gravy. We were served a basket of warm rolls and cornbread. Food was very good, we both enjoyed it. Portions were very generous and I had plenty of leftovers. Total bill... More

Fried chicken was hot (temperature), but needed some hot sauce to suit my palette. Sides of Mac and cheese, beans and mashed potatoes complimented the chicken well. Good portion sizes. The blueberry pie was delicious.

I have been by a couple of times on various days and the food was always consistent and very good. You had better be hungry if you order the 1/2 chicken because it's almost a guarantee you're taking some home! It's about as close to home cooking as you can get. The place is clean and there are always law... More

My wife and I just ate here for the first time and we loved it. We were served by Patsy who was wonderful. Our breakfast was hot and delicious. This was real southern home cooking. We will be going back to eat again, I want to try everything on their menu. There is plenty of parking and service was quick.

Simply the best home style southern food in the area. I have had most items on the menu and have not had a bad meal. I must warn you to bring a hefty appetite because you will be served large portions at very reasonable prices! Staff is excellent also. We eat here minimum 2 says per week!

We stopped for lunch and the food was great! My husband had the fried chicken and loved it. I could not pass up the meatloaf! We had nice choices for food, salads and sides. Great service! Lot of people here on lunch hour breaks from work. Plenty of parking and right next to the actual farmers market.

I went in there Sunday and the food did take a while but our waitress Stephanie was very friendly and attentive. I tried the broiled fish that she suggested and it was out of this world and so was the squash. I will definitely be back to try the BBQ they told me about.
