Debbie provided great service. I enjoyed a chicken fried steak, with a salad, and tea for $20.02. Yesterday I ate here and enjoyed chicken salad, served with pumpkin bread.

The food is excellent! Price and quantity make this a good buy. You have to try the sun fries! They are sweet potatoe fries with a brown sugar dipping sauce on the side.

I always enjoy the sweet potato pancakes with the pecan syrup! You can’t go wrong! I’ve also had the breakfast buffet as well as items from their lunch menu. Always consistent. Good food, friendly service

Restaurant is a good location but our meal was not that good. My husband and I both ordered soup... They were both like warm at best. The chips that came with his chili were stale and chili didn't have much flavor. Probably will not go...More
