This is a basic home cooked food establishment. If you like that then this is the place. A little bland but then they are catering to a mass audience. On this basis I'd recommend them.

Stumbled in here for a Sunday lunch. My wife and I each got the fried chicken, and it was some of the best around. All of the vegetables we ordered were great, and my son raved about the vegetable soup with beef, noting how much beef was in the soup. Service was very prompt, professional, and friendly. Food came almost... More

Put my tea bag in at 6:21 after ordering. Another man came in, sat across, quickly got his meal. Another couple came in... More

My husband and I stayed overnight in Florence SC on our way from Fl to Va. This restaurant sounded like a fun and different place to eat. I ordered fried chicken and my husband had stew. Very small portions plus meat and veggies didnt have any flavor. The restaurant was fairly clean but the tables either needed major cleaning or... More

On a family trip to DC & stopped over to rest in Florence. We found this place quite by accident as we were driving by & decided to stop in. We were a little hesitant at first because it appeared nearly empty, but boy what an enjoyable dining experience. The menu is basic & the food is southern style comfort... More

For $6.49, we enjoyed the hearty country breakfast. Served with nice, large homemade country biscuits, two farm fresh eggs and you choose your side. I enjoyed the skillet apples... More
