Loved this restaurant for truly home cooked meals. Favorite dish was chicken livers, but everything was good. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed by the TN Department of Revenue. Most likely the place is gone for good unless they can settler their tax issues.

Saturday afternoon, sunny, felt the need for some southern comfort food. Checked tripadvisor as we always do when going to a new restaurant. We were not disappointed. I had the vegetable plate with cornbread. Husband had the special, cabbage roll, with sweet potatoes and cornbread....More
