Just wanted to enjoy a little one on one girl time with my daughter. We enjoyed the delicious food! There wasn't much left to take home! Really loved the chicken and the cornbread! Friendly folks with good conversation. Laid back and peaceful.

The restaurant serves primarily local dishes. Very casual. The meals are served on paper plates. Service is quick. Drinks are self service. Homemade desserts are a must!

It's really easy! In a sauce pot we fry some chopped bacon until it starts to release it oils. Add the chopped carrot and let it cook for about 5-10 minutes stirring regularly. Then add the chopped cabbage and a small amount... More
