The Onion Loaf was very good. My burger was ok. Didn't care for the fries. When I looked at the price for a lunch for 2 that was over $40, I definitely feel that this place is overpriced.

We ate as a group and were treated well. Service was very friendly but missed some details (like no silverware and one order missed). Catfish and chicken livers were more batter than substance. Stick with the burgers and cheese dip.

Me and my husband ate here and the food was the best. Fall of the bone ribs and a chicken fried steak that was huge! And topped it off with dessert. Great food and great service well worth what we spent.

Excellent menu diversity now with healthy choices also. The chicken livers where outstanding and catfish and smoked sausage excellent too. Chicken Ceasar wrap looked amazing and friends we saw there confimed it was.

WOW! This place rocks! We chose the combos. Wife said the shrimp is ‘delicious!’ Chicken tenders are fabulous, as is the smoked sausage. Excellent service and fair pricing. The Real Deal!
