Family Meal is just awesome in so many ways. First the staff always smiles and will acknowledge you as soon as you enter. The food is ridiculous - best fried chicken and the fries are so incredible with the 3 homemade sauces that accompany them....More

Signature dishes include Fried Chicken with Buttermilk Biscuits, Meatloaf with Mushroom Gravy and Duck Fat Fried Potatoes.
