The Chicken Fried Steak and Ribs were amazing. I also had the Mac and Cheese, Fried Okra and Sweet Potato fires. The blue berry cobbler was excellent as well. Good for a date, business or in big groups.

My mom took me here and I was shocked at the home cooking style that was displayed in each dish I ate. Homecooking is a missed virtue.

Good home cooking. Good wait staff. Reasonably priced. Chicken-fried steak was over battered, with barely any meat.

I am struggling with giving this a very good or average rating. It used to be excellent but has lost so much of the home-cooked flavor that I came here for. I just had their Saturday special, smothered pork chops. The gravy had that instant...More
