The service is impeccable and staff is very nice. The food is perfect. Eat the fried chicken, BBQ or stew and you will love it. The best place to grab lunch off I-85.

Polite staff. Large dining room. Great parking. We stopped here just for the Brunswick Stew. Lacking in taste and meat. Hotdog shaped hushpuppies a bit on the sweet side, and cakey, too.
