I love this place and go every time I'm in Jacksonville. The staff are friendly, the food is great and homemade. The prices are very reasonable and it's a clean and cozy atmosphere. I recommend the fried pickles!

This is a popular place in South Jacksonville. The menu is just good old country food. Nothing fancy just the place to take your family. The breakfast menu is the most popular featuring the horseshoe or pony shoe (1/2 of the horseshoe) that is served...More

Living in the south there is no such thing served around here. So when I visit family we have to have the tenderloin and a horseshoe. Both are very good here.
