This place was a great find. It's food like you're grandmother would make but these folks cook better than grandma! I had Blue Plate with scrambled eggs, cheesy hash browns, biscuit and gravy and bacon. Wife had omelet. Daughter had Blue Plate and chocolate chip...More

I came here looking for home style Southern cuisine and I was not disappointed! Fried chicken, green beans, mashed potatoes... yum! I also fell in love with their cheesy hash brown casserole. It was delicious! The meal was very filling so I ordered a slice...More
