While the restaurant is nothing to look at from the outside the food on the inside is fabulous. We ordered pot roast and fried chicken with buttered peas and butter squash as our sides. Everything was delicious.

Open for breakfast and lunch. Marvelous seasoned menu for all tastes. A must visit for all visitors to get a taste of the South. Don't let the location discourage you...a favorite place for dowtown office workers. Very clean, prompt courteous service. Try the buttered squash.
