Fried chicken, meat loaf, pork chops, chicken and dumplings, etc. Great sides as well: mashed potatoes and gravy, stewed tomatoes, kale, green beans, mac n cheese, cream corn. The list goes on. They also serve Missies Pies which are exquisite. A Lexington staple. Must go

The food is good. Completely a home cooked meal type of restaurant. But I've visited all the locations and the staff is never nice. This place would be excellent if they were just a tad pickier of who they hired. But food is off the...More
