Good food and reasonable price. Very busy for a little hole in the wall place. A true mom and pop kind of place.

We look forward to driving down I-95 just to eat here. Best fried chicken and fried chicken livers anywhere. Take a good look at their menu once inside. You'll be astounded at the variety of seafood, Cajun fare and just plain down home goodness. We live 2.5 hours from there in upstate SC and would drive there just to eat.... More

Just a little shack of a place but pretty good BBQ. Outdoor seating mostly. With a dearth of good restaurants in Hardeeville this place had good down home cook'n.

Seriously, died and gone to heaven kind of chicken. Jambalaya rice was great too. I might not be anybody's fried chicken connoisseur but I will say this is just off the chain kind of delicious.

Found this by Trip Advisor. Now we will stop here every trip to Florida. Food was awesome home cooked style and their smoked chicken was great! Favorite dinner dive!

It's a shame that this place hasn't realized what a little cleanliness would do. Their chicken is great but the filthy floor, overflowing trash receptacle, tables not cleaned, and food actually stuck to the badly tattered "plantation shutters" are a complete turnoff. Pitiful, as this place could be a gold mine. I'm surprised that the health department hasn't stepped in.

The facility was very dirty. Have had better fried chicken at popeyes and bojangles. mac and cheese was good and fried okra but couldn't get past how dirty it was. Wonder what the kitchen looked like! Would not go back.
