Overall, the value was excellent.... More

Food was very good and more than plenty to eat. Ended up taking enough home for another meal. Fried green tomatoes were good and crunchy but made with a different batter than corn meal but very good.

Some of the best chicken you can get on North Market, and I say this because I've tried the competition. The food is fresher, tastier and maybe a bit cheaper. The staff is friendly. It's my 'go to' chicken place.

We went in at 7:30 p.m. and wanted coffee to drink. Sorry, they don't serve coffee after 2:00 p.m. Weird but OK. Order fried pickles as an appetizer. Got them after my meal.
