Got ripped off! I was charged $16 for two pieces of pie and two cups of coffee. Watch out for checks with cryptic symbols and no prices. The cashier is a conman! Avoid this place if you can. The pie was awful as well!

The food here is unbelievably delicious. I have never had anything less from fried chicken to banana pudding and all in between. It is one the best you will find anywhere.
