We had read the reviews and though we'd try. When we walked in we saw lots of locals so knew it must be good. Chicken Fried Steak was very tender. The one waitress was very busy but all came out great!

Food is very good and reasonably priced. Service is a little slow at times, but it's a small place with homestyle cooking. It's worth waiting for a table.

Their menu has familiar favorites with some unique items like the sidewinders. Tasty food, reasonable price, plus a friendly and attentive wait staff.
