Litton's is a local restaurant known for great hamburgers and bakery items. Usually have a long wait so go early. Great for family with kids or couples.

We like to go to Litton's on Tuesday and take advantage of their lunch special, which is 2 breaded and fried chicken filets with 2 sides and biscuit or cornbread for only $10.99. We have done this several times and the food is very good and large portions.

Litton's has the best burgers in town. And the red velvet cake is to die for (it is REAL red velvet, not chocolate cake with red food coloring other places ). Service was great and it was nice to see and speak with Barry, the owner

Litton's Family restaurant is undoubtedly the best place for a cheeseburger, hamburger, or hotdog and fries. The homemade desserts are just wonderful and there are also daily specials. There is nothing bad on the menu.

Littons is known for their great hamburgers, and today was no disappointment. Awesome cheeseburger and fries. My only complaint is they don't use Dukes mayo, or Heinz ketchup! Other than that...it is a great meal!
