Stubbornly non-changing old NC-style cafeteria--utterly adore it! All the classics served up just like they should be, totally and blissfully devoid of hip or irony.

I had lunch here with a friend. This is the perfect spot if you have a hankering for some Southern-ish food. Good variety so a family would do well here. We had a good lunch special which was about $16.50 for two people.

Terrific food, fast lines, clean tables and floors, wide selections. Refills frequent, southern style veggies. Not big on kale, tofu, quinoa, or other exotic , trendy fare. Most everyone also loves the desserts, (I can't have them), huge meat and salad selections, I counted 14...More
