Had the small fish plate and it was very good. Received 3 good size pieces of tasty fish along with fries and hush puppies. Called ahead and they had ready when I walked in. A local favorite.

I've been here twice, once for a casual business meet up (which by the looks a lot of people do this for lunch) and then once with family with kids in tow. Both times I enjoyed it. It has that lunch counter feel, very simple....More

I had read on TA that prices were high but not really an issue for me so I went to try the "famous" fried chicken. The chicken was very good and I agree the prices are high. What bothered me was the 27 cent charge...More

I love the chicken but to me its some what a little high. They serve everything on paper plates. You get a large piece of chicken and hushpuppies are round and ok. Tea is pretty good. Some days are pretty busy depending on the time...More

Have had the pleasure of eating the shrimp, fish and chicken. All were wonderful. Just remember to take cash, no cards.

A place I often end up when eating alone. It's a great local place that had great food. The quality is consistent.

Best fried chicken you will ever eat. they also have all types of seafood that is wonderful as well. You walk up to the counter and order and then they call your number when it is ready, not fancy but so so good

The chicken was pretty good, this is more of a fast food restaurant in my opinion. Order from the counter in front and pick up your order which is served in a paper boat basket inside of a paper bag. Cash only!
