Great, delicious country cooking. This “meat and three” reminded me of the meals my grandmother used to make!

Whatever you want to eat, you will probably find it here. Anything from salads, fried chicken, steak, fried okra, etc. The food is very good. Service is good also. On weekends, prepare to wait for a few minutes...shows the food is good!

We really enjoyed our meal here. The food was tasty, hot and fresh. If country cooking is what you want this is the place to come. Our server was very kind and efficient. We will definitely be back to try some other options.

I got broasted chicken, fried okra, turnip greens, green beans, and cornbread. It was all so good (and super reasonably priced). For any fellow out-of-towners: broasted chicken was, to me, indistinguishable from fried chicken. Delicious, but surprising.

While traveling from Nashville to Knoxville we exited #238 off I-40 (US 231) headed north looking for a place to eat. Drove past Sunset Family Restaurant but noticed several cars in the parking lot. We decided to turn around and check it out. Not fancy...More

Our bill was $28. As in most restaurants, you can trim the bill down a bit if you don't order the most expensive items. This is home style cooking and the entrees are similarly priced.
