This local restaurant is WONDERFUL if you love southern soul food. They offer fresh pork products from the Red and White grocery store on the property. You don't want to miss this home-made type food.

Love the lunch special especially the pork tenderloin in gravy and the barbecued ribs. Also favorite veggies are the rutabagas and the cabbage. Friendly service and staff. One of the favorite breakfast and lunch spots for locals.
