“Better than home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

Some dishes are harder to do at home and get it right. Beef liver is one of those. Here it is is very lightly battered and fried lightly, crisp, tender. It is topped with onions and gravy too, but I like mine plain. There is a long list of side dishes to choose from mashed potatoes, green beans, fried okra, beets. Pick 3 of your favorites plus a bread choice. Of course, there are lots of other choices sandwiches, pancakes, salads and daily specials, but its hard to pick something else when you've found a great dish.

“Great family restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

Excellent food, great service, and inexpensive meals that will fill your belly. Closest you can get to home cooked food if you are travelling or passing through Mount Airy.

“Very good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013 via mobile

We are moving here and went based on someone's suggestion. The place was packed. We had flounder on a Friday and it was great. Our waitress spent all kinds of time talking to us. Super friendly, clean and good. I can't believe this place isn't ranked higher.

“Great restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

A group of friends rode our motorcycles here and was greeted at the door by a very friendly lady and was told that "waitresses name" had a table waiting for us. Very friendly and fast service. Food was great. Waitress kept our glasses full and checked on us often. My only problem would be that they are cash only. I don't normally carry a lot, if any cash on me.

“Good local place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

We ate breakfast on the last day in the area. Good home cooking. The place was clean, lots of locals were eating there, which tells me it must be a good place. Service was very friendly.
