I love the fried chicken plate. Value and portions are worth the trip. Family owned and run, mother and son were working hard during my visit.

We were lucky to get a table & not wait for dinner (we were there by 5 though). Much easier to get a table if there are no more than 3-4 people. Everything was so great; servers, chefs, food & atmosphere. Restaurant in a converted...More
