I used to periodically stop for breakfast when in Pickens, and it was pretty good. Much better than lunch or dinner. However, stopped today and it will be my last. Hash browns were golden on outside, but chewy, white, barely warm inside. Eggs too well done. Ham tasted ok but very small portion. Had to pick up meal at counter.... More

Nice people. Large menu. Horrible food...most of us took one bite and no more. Hamburger was stone cold. We were desperate for food after a Clemson game that's the only reason We stopped.

Friendly crew and decent food in adequate amounts fairly quickly. Breakfast is probably the best fare here. Prices are reasonable. Building is old and only fair repair. Cleanliness is fair. Dinner menu sounds appetizing but disappoints when tasted.

My wife and I were looking for a non-fast-food option for lunch. Carolina Fine Foods was not our first choice, but the two well-rated local pizza places were both closed. We both chose the "meat and two veg" option. One combo was grilled chicken breast, green beans and potato salad; the other, roast beef with gravy, mac and cheese and... More

stopped for biscuits while in town to visit family. Nothing cookie-cutter here. Scratch made biscuits, crispy bacon, and made to order eggs. Very satisfying breakfast on the way to the Jockey Lot.

Ate breakfast here once and lunch once during my stay. The breakfast sandwich on the fresh biscuit was phenomenal. Lunch was really great too, I had gyros, and tsatziki sauce, it had a great flavor. And I really enjoyed it. The iced tea was really amazing, the best sweet tea I've had in the south. I had two glasses!

Over 20 years of piling on the food., just like when they opened. Onion rings and best tea is to die for. Of course most fast food is grease heaven but that's what you go for in a fast food restaurant. They have the fastest drive-thru in the county and 95 % of the time your order is right, just... More

The food is basically a big ball of grease and the service is terrible. I'm surprised they've been in business this long.
