We had the chicken as recommended! Pretty delicious! Crunchy and yummy! Good mac and cheese. The ice cream looked pretty good. They were busy the whole time we were there. We stopped on our way through Illinois.

The chicken is very good and crispy. The slaw is always tasty. We quite often bring the two home for company or take to potlucks.

We routinely order the 22 pc fried chicken meal which comes with several sides. Great for a large family or get together. Everything we've had here has been a huge hit. Nothing fancy, but definitely great comfort food.
