If you are in the mood for the typical lueplate special (aka Meat & Veggis) Sothern Style this is the place where locals, contractors, and retires go. Entrees change buy the day of the week such as Fried Chicken, Meat loaf, etc. My favorite is the Chicken Livers which I do not normally eat, but here they are baked and... More

Traveling from GA. To Kentucky and stopped on for dinner on a Friday night. Doug's was busy, but we got seated immediately, ate and we're back on the road within an hour. Food was awesome and even had live blue grass music. Would definitely stop back in while traveling.

My husband had to flag her down to get butter for his baked potato, by that time his steak was half eaten . I was out of tea for half of my meal and it never got refilled. Our waitress... More

The biscuits are like grandma's. The southern gravy is yummy!! The streak-o-lean a bit salty but I like it like that. Eggs done right. Coffee piping hot. Juice tasted like it was just squeezed. An all around good meal.

Good food. The meatloaf was a generous portion and tasted great. Melt in your mouth biscuits and better than grandma's friend okra. Friday night gospel. Always crowded so go early. Locals favorite.
