Wonderful southern cooking. I enjoyed roast beef, rice, butter beans and zipper peas. Other family members enjoyed chichen tenders, mashed potatoes, mac & cheese and coconut pie. It was all very delicious.

Great place to eat real home cooked meal. The roast beef, potatoes, and rice were awesome. The pies are always fresh. The ladies come around and keep your drinks full. I'll keep coming back to eat.

Very good place to enjoy a sit down meal. The fried chicken was very good - very little breading and moist inside. The sweet tea is what you would expect in the south. Our waitress made sure we had every thing we needed.

This is a stop where you see lots of local folks eating and you say they can't be wrong. The food is served cafeteria style and is good. I think the sides should be kept warmer or maybe I was just there at the wrong...More
