This place has great home cooked meals, terrific servers and great pies! The decor is early Arkansas hunting. It probably still looks as it did when it opened. Comfortable!

Good food, friendly and homey service that is fast and accurate. I may take some of my main meal home in a ToGo box, but I always finish my dessert!
