“My grandfather retired”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

Hey yall. So please to hear such wonderful things about our food. I am one of the granddaughters of the owner. The grandchildren have recently had our own children and my grandfather decided after 37 years of serving others it was time to spend time with family and his new great grand babies. If any of you knew my grandfather the way I did you would know he wasn't into decor but more into his food which was his proud and joy. We all miss the restaurant very much. God bless yall ♥

“Is this Place Still Open”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

Ok, I drive by here a lot, and honestly never see any cars out front, so I really don't know if this place is still open for business or not?

The restaurant get its name from an iron gate on the wall which was purchased from a DuPont. The food is great, the service is excellent and price is right.
