Great little casual place to grab some delicious southern cooking with friendly service. Fried chicken is fantastic!! Skin is crispy but the meat is tender. Homemade corn bread muffins are really good, highly recommend trying them with honey, that little bit of sweetness makes it...More

I doubt this place can be beat for the price! The selection was somewhat limited in terms of meats available (fish would have been nice), but the roast beef was delicious and amazingly tender. The sides make the meal -- turnip greens were delicious, and...More

Our Red Hat ladies ate lunch here today. The food was awesome especially the fried chicken, which they are known for. I had the turnip greens, macaroni & cheese (so creamy & rich) and cucumber salad plus corn muffins. So delicious every bite. But the...More

I consider myself a connosieur of fried Chicken Livers and the first time I tried them, it was nothing short of a Spiritual Experience! Absolute perfection! Most restaurants overcook them, but their Martin's cook is a master of chicken livers! My only complaint is that...More

I saw on trip advisor the iconic status of this restaurant, had to try. So glad I did! Great food, friendliest staff ever, large portions and very good prices. Get there early because they wait in line, and it's well worth the wait. Not fancy...More

This place is a gem hidden! Everyone who loves soul food should know about it. The portions are generous and everything consistently tastes good from beginning to end. Can't wait to revisit!!

Fabulous fried chicken that's been left in gravy that falls off the bone tender, over rice. Picture the same chicken before it gets smothered, mmmm good. Great sides. Pie slices big enough for three people, made in house. Coconut is to die for. Great muffins,...More
