We greatly enjoyed this place. The owner is also the waitress and an interesting person. Her husband runs the kitchen. The building is a rebuilt home that keeps the ambiance of a house but with dining tables and a bar, etc. The food was good.

Superb restaurant, one of the best we have eaten at in all of our travels. Nice decor, excellent / knowledgeable staff. Try the rattlesnake and rabbit sausage appy, and then the ribs. You will want to come here often.
