We were in Chapel Hill visiting our children. My son recommended this restaurant. He has eaten there several times. I ordered the chitterlings. Very good. The desserts are wonderful. I'm ready to go back there.

Maurice was our server. He is really on top of his game with a great attitude. The fried chicken is almost as good as my grandmothers. The collard greens were fresh and very good. Great family restaurant.

The fried chicken was indeed crispy and tasty. The sides were very good. For the amount of food you get we felt it was very inexpensive. The waitstaff was fine. We look forward to returning next year.
