Enjoyed a true home cooked meal at a restaurant here today. Super cornbread and their chicken livers were tender and flavorful. The meatloaf looked amazing too and my friend said it was the only place he ever orders meatloaf out. The vegetables were so tasty.

Doug’s has been around for 40 years or so and has always served quality Southern food. Friday is all you can eat catfish and my favorite side is the sweet potato casserole.

If you want some great southern food at an exceptional price eat here. Good food with lots of selections. Staff will get you what you want even if it's not on the menu. If they have the food they will cook it to your liking.
