Food is good, especially fried chicken and popcorn shrimp. Service is great, young lady that checks on tables is quite friendly and courteous! Prices are affordable. No tipping required, but I tipped anyway because of her courtesy!

This place has the very best chicken tenders and my husband loves the chicken legs and thighs. The service is really good, prices are reasonable, and the sweet tea is delicious!

I love to stop here anytime I am traveling through going back to my hometown. The food is great!! You can drive thru or dine in. I prefer to dine in so that I can truly enjoy my meal. They also have TVs so that you can watch while you eat (if you prefer).

Thank Gloria S
