I eat here every time I visit.I like the fried chicken,squash casserole & fried corn. It is not fancy but the food is home made. You also get a corn muffin. They have other things besides chicken and a choice of several sides.

This is a staple of downtown Athens that you don't want to miss. Some of the best soul food you'll ever try. The collard greens and sweet potato souffle are off the charts. A must stop every time you're in Athens, automatic!!

Best fried chicken I have ever had! "Automatic for the people" I highly recommend this place! Had a full plate of good food for $9:73. That included my tea.

We found this place by accident and it was a great find! Some of the best fried chicken I've ever had -- light and not greasy and fried to perfection. We enjoyed the vegetable sides too.
