I have to say we stopped b/c my husband wanted chitterlings. While we came inside to pick them up. The chicken smelled good so I asked for a chicken breast to go. She said she threw in a "short thigh". It costs $12.75. The chitterlings...More

Returned to Charleston with a friend and insisted we have lunch here as my previous visits were great. This use to be an awesome local dive restaurant serving great southern soul food at very reasonable prices. The fried chicken was very good and cost $8...More

I went here today for the fried chicken. The fried chicken was fantastic. It was the best I have ever had. The sweet yams were very good too. The side order of bbq ribs was okay. The ribs, it seemed, were left in a crock...More

While the staff is nice and caring; the quantity, quality and price of food are not in sync. A 1/4 of a chicken with two tiny sides and an ice tea are $14.00. The setting was a pretty run down building with no real amenities,...More

We read the reviews for this place before trying it. Thought it was going to be great based on the national reviews. Wrong!!! It was terrible. Lima beans were mush; fish was dry; not much food for what you got. Slow service but nice staff....More

Yes, the restaurant is, shall we say, "rustic" but the fried chicken, served on a styrofoam plate, was better than any chicken that I have tasted. My date was upset that the chitterlings were all sold out by 1 pm, when we arrived. Call early...More

This is the type of place we would not stop at if we were just driving around looking for a place to eat. Don't mean that badly but the building isn't much to look at but the server and the food can not be beat....More
