If you are looking for a good meal, look no further. They have delectable home cooking. The Brunswick stew is just yummy.the barbecue has a great flavor. Nothing fancy just good southern cooking and good southern company.

Cheeseburger is to die for! You can tell they don't use regular ground beef. Waitresses are very sweet and owner is pleasant as ever. Nothing fancy here, they use paper plates and cups. Also try the meatloaf on Tuesdays and chicken and dumplings on Thursdays-delicious!!!!...More
