Standard Southern Cooking done well. (My "go to" is the Chicken Fried Steak) Very nice vegetable sides selections. Friendly staff. Tasty Pies. Bottomless SWEET TEA and coffee. ONLY place in town with an indoor separate smoker's room.

Just a quiet little diner style restaurant. Country style food, large portions. Can't go wrong here. Had Christmas Dinner here and was very happy. If your in the area, give it a try.

Actually disappointed. We used to eat here all the time and the food and service was amazing in the past... This time we were never greeted when we came in.

I started going here, as a smoker, because it has a designated smoking section that is isolated from non-smokers. It is the only restaurant that I know of in Alvin, where you can smoke at your table. I quit smoking since my first visits, but continue to go here to support the venue as a restaurant that one has a... More

This location needs a severe update , both in decor & on the menu. I believe the grease in the air that hits you like a ton of bricks dates back a couple of decades! For shame, for shame!
