If you like southern cooking, then this is the place. Lots of fried foods: green tomatoes, fried cheese balls, chicken, heavy gravy’s, biscuits, grits. Food was good but not the best I’ve had,

I'll begin by saying this restaurant is in a little house with an adorable porch. Our visit was on the recommendation list from a few people (that we didn't know personally). Our wait was a half hour because we didn't have reservations. After we were...More
