“Consistantly Good”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Their food has always been consistently good. Have had several entrees now and I am very satisfied with the food and the service. I can say this is the best banana pudding I have found in Midland. The chicken fried steak and the tilapia in garlic cream sauce are both great.

“Great Home Cookin'”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 via mobile

This is a classic place with a cute atmosphere. Food was outstanding and classic too. Chicken fried steak cut like butter - no need for a knife and was huge.

“very good and alot of food”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

went here with friends on first visit. Service was good, food was very good great comfort food. made an excellent chicken fried steak. It all seemed homemade nothing frozen which is a plus in my book. Menu is limited, but in my opinion this is a good thing, stick to a few items and do them well, so if you are looking for dozens of choices it may not be for you, but there seems to be enough choices to suit most everyone except the really hard to please. Had the best banana pudding I found in town. They serve you quite a bit of food I left very satisfied.

“Down home delicious!”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

If you like real down home comfort food, this is the place. Location may not be the best, but. The food surly is. Chicken fried streak is the vest I have had in over 30 years, even beats that at Wallstreet Bar & Grill and that's saying a lot.the fried chicken is absolutely the best in town. All served family style with old fashioned vegetables. Nothing fancy, just really good!

“I give it a 3 bc of the lack of choices on menu”
Reviewed 8 October 2013 via mobile

The food is good except for the 'chicken spaghetti ' which is not made with spaghetti sauce, its made with BBQ chicken and some cream sauce. It's disgusting. The menu lacks variety. There is only 5-7 options. Also the chips that are an appetizer are horrid. Try the fried zucchini.
