Great service and staff and the food is usually always good !! Don't drink the water, it still tastes off. They keep raising prices but the food quality seems to be the same. We will still keep going for now !

The food here is truly southern! So if you are looking for fried chicken and all the sides that go with it this is the place to go. The service is always friendly.

We had breakfast this morning! Great food and great service. The only negative was the inside temperature. It was a ice chest. Just be sure and have a jacket in the car.

Chicken soaked in buttermilk and air pressure deep fried. Tender, moist with perfect flour breading every time. Mac N Cheese just like Granny makes. Green Beans, Greens, Casseroles, always on point. I live in Florida now and many days would kill for a Fried Chicken...More

No private room. However there is a room size area toward the back of the dining area that could house about 30 people.
