This place isn't fancy, but the food is pure comfort food. It's like Mom's cooking from Mom's menu of specialties.

The fried chicken is really good. Homemade cole slaw is great. My husband got steak and it was really tender. Would definitely eat here again.

Don't let the location get you off track! This restaurant in a strip mall is worth the trip for southern home style cooking and friendly service.

I had the all dark 3 piece dinner at the Hitching Post and it was wonderful. Very reasonable meal with chicken, masked potatoes, side salad and roll for under $10. Very good service as well.
