This is one of the best chicken fried steaks you'll ever eat. Owned by one of the friendliest people you'll ever meet. Stop in and ask for Patrick have time to visit if you do. He will treat you like family.

Food is fresh and delicious and always homemade. But this is not a metro area so if you come here on Sunday, expect a wait....they are usually packed.....and there is a reason they are packed, the food is excellent. Woodville is only 9 miles up...More
