We ordered two of the daily specials. Chicken fried steak & liver and onions. Both were good as were the vegetables. Green beans, mashed potatoes & fried green tomatoes. Hope to return.

Good food but you may experience a wait because it is fresh. Very reasonably priced. Good portion sizes. A very good deal and the people are friendly.
