The food was very good! The chicken was tender, moist inside and crispy outside. The man behind the counter was very helpful. I would definitely eat there again!

They have a great buffet there with a lot of traditional southern foods. There fried chicken makes it worth the stop.

A family-run business that is a treat, and a hidden gem, but you'll know when you've found it...you will see the big chicken out front! Breakfast is great, yoy can have bacon, eggs, sausage, bisquits, etc. Lunch and dinner are delicious. I recommend the chicken...More

We had a very good breakfast here. I only had a biscuit with the fried chicken breast but it was enough and really tasty. The menu is large and varied for breakfast.

Chicken is good but buffet only has dark meat. If you like to eat off styrofoam plates and plastic forks, this is for you. I thought when folks go back for more food they should have new clean plates, but this was not the case...More

This has been a family favorite for over 38 years. Really good fried chicken. They serve a fillet sandwich with their homemade sauce that is really good. They also serve breakfast here. Very casual place to eat. They have a lunch and dinner buffet.

Very crispy. The gizzards were so tender and peppery. Biscuits were very good as well. But for take out they did not provide butter. Cole slaw was excellent. The restaurant was very easy to find for someone passing through.
