This place is the best!! It has something for EVERYONE. Most weekends there is an hour wait. Well worth the wait. Family owned. Besides the chicken, the catfish filets and fiddlers are good.

Want a home cooked meal? You need to come here. I crave this place regularly. I always choose the ham which is very good. Plus you get endless sides that are almost better than my grandma's cooking!!
