While my favorite is the pan fried chicken, breakfast is also outstanding. Never disappointed. It it family owned for years and the quality has been maintained.

Just off of route 81, we walked here on a Sunday night from a nearby motel to find the best southern fried chicken I’ve ever had! Very reasonable prices. After a day on the road headed south, their chicken special with two sides was very satisfying; generous portions, respectable beer and coffee, and the service was great, helpful and informative....

Once inside, I could tell that the place of been in business for a long time due to the layout. The young lady that seated me informed me of the fried chicken special for that evening.... More

Food was prepared very well. Fried chicken was very good, but not the best I ever had. Fried oysters were very good and plenty on plate. Roast beef was very good. Nice size salads to start the meals. Would recommend this restaurant when in area.

We were looking around to grab a bite to eat, wanted something new so we tried this place. It was cozy inside and the waitress was very friendly. There are quite a few things on the menu and they offer specials. We tried the chicken fried steak and it was very good. I think you can't go wrong with whatever... More

Stumbled upon this place on the way north from vacation and happy we did. Had the Fried Catfish special and it was fantastic, also tried a sample of the peanut soup and have to say it's something I'd order the next time. Great food and great service add up to a great place to eat, will be stopping by again... More

Ordered the shrimp basket, chicken salad and buffalo chicken wrap. Was ok. Nothing special. Is a place to go if you do not want Mexican - Jalisco which is great. Reviewed Jalisco. Not a must eat place!

Excellent service, Great wait staff, Easy to get to, with plenty of parking. The food was so good, a little salty. Quaint Southern charm and highly recommended. Friendly neighborhood place where everyone goes for good food and to socialize. The prices were reasonable. Would return.
