We stopped here for lunch one day. The chicken and waffles was very good. My husband enjoyed the pulled pork. The service was quick and friendly.

The fried chicken was excellent, both dark and light. Alas, my wife's coleslaw tasted a tad moldy, but they immediately switched it out for some mashed potatoes and gravy that made her happy. My wife says she's had better fried chicken, but she's been down...More

Good Omelette. Good juice. Order the grits and not the potatoes. The potatoes are gritty and peppery. The pulled pork is so tender.

We shared the most tender side of ribs we have every eaten here! Casual with separate bar if beer is all you want. Gets very busy.
