We have eaten here several times for dinner. Wife loves the hamburger steak and fries. I love the catfish fillets and fries and Cole slaw. But, they can't seem to serve it consistently HOT. If the food is lukewarm, it is NOT good. He slaw...More

The food was good at a reasonable. There is a large variety of food to choose from ranging from bbq to fish to steaks. The service was ok.

My wife and I eat here just about every week and we are never disappointed. We come for the AYCE catfish. Unlike many catfish places, the fish here are lightly battered and the meat is white and tasty. Not muddy tasting like other places. The...More

The basket of ribs was very good. Also the slaw. Very inexpensive. The place needs a revamp, however I understand it's a small town place.

As a local, I enjoy this restaurant because they have good food and the prices are reasonable. It is not extremely difficult to find from the Villa Rica hotels, but it's about 7-8 minutes from the hotels on I-20 at exit 24.
