The shear number of cars in the parking lot at lunch tells you how relatively outstanding this little nook can be. Excellent selection of cooked meals that changes daily and is served cafeteria style. Smoked chicken and loaded mashed potatoes were out of this world!...More

Great place to eat real home cooked meal. The roast beef, potatoes, and rice were awesome. The pies are always fresh. The ladies come around and keep your drinks full. I'll keep coming back to eat.

Very good place to enjoy a sit down meal. The fried chicken was very good - very little breading and moist inside. The sweet tea is what you would expect in the south. Our waitress made sure we had every thing we needed.

Stopped by the Oil Lamp with a group while visiting in Perry. All the meals were just like home cooking. Meat loaf, catfish chicken and roast beef are all excellent. Vegetables, deserts and salad bar are all very nice.,
