We had friends from out of state craving good southern cooking. They were thrilled. The fried chicken was great. We enjoyed most everything on the buffet. The desserts needed improvement.

Have been eating at this restaurant for over 5 years and enjoyed every visit. They have different special items each day along with the regular. Food is always hot and very tasty. You can look at their menu on line. Would recommend.
