If you want home cooking this is the place to go. This chicken is grilled to perfect. It's cafeteria style is not the best but well worth the wait in line. The ladies in the line aren't always nice but I guess it's like being home, momma tired and we switching stuff because it all looks so good. But on... More

You won't believe the variety of food behind the counter. BBQ, fried chicken, BBQ chicken with the sweetest sauce, pork chops, turkey and dressing, hamburger steak, etc all dished up in generous servings along with the best vegetables seasoned just right. Hot hush puppies and banana pudding. Better than Thanksgiving.

Food tastes good. Good old fashioned southern cooking. Kind of reminds you of home cooked meals from your momma. Certain foods (if asked) they'll cook fresh food you on spot. Food's always hot when you get it. They also have drive through available but you've got to call in first and then pick it up at the drive through. Overall,... More

I had a veggie plate. As I was walking forward to the register, I noticed that collards and mac-n-cheese cost extra. I saw the couple in front of me pointing at the sign on the counter. I presume they were getting one or both of the item(s) or they were in disbelief. I have never come across anything like this... More

We eat here often because we like that it is more like home cooking with lots of veggies to choose from and it is quick. I have picky eaters & everyone can get what they like here. My favorites are baked chicken, bbq chicken, and fried pork chops. Cabbage, string beans, mac & cheese, sweet potatoes, and desserts are all... More

I stopped by there for lunch to purchase a take out plate. My fried pork chop was fine, but the cabbage had a metal taste to it. The yams tasted like it came from a can where they just add marshmallows on top. They charge 50 cents extra for collards and mac-n-cheese. They claim it's due to the higher cost... More
