Delicious food and a unique dining experience! If you want a truly Southern meal please give this place a shot. Unique and very traditionally cooked meals and delicious fresh ingredients. You will feel like you are one of the family.

Large tables with huge Lazy Susans’ surrounded by people I don’t know. Everyone sits family style. While there is no privacy, it’s worth the sacrifice for some of the best old fashioned country cooking you’ll find anywhere. Fried chicken, black eyed peas, green beans, carrots,...More
