Normally get “the works” with eggs, bacon, hash browns, pancakes and grits and it sure fills me up. Great start to the day with a Christian based atmosphere.

I gave up eating chicken fried steak years ago because of the calories but Down Home makes it worth it. Best I’ve ever had. Nothing fancy here but very satisfying.

Stopped by for breakfast going to our camper. The food was so so. Nothing to set it apart. Not sure if I will come back or not. The service was top notch

Hungry? Stop by this Almost Famous location for a great meal and you won't be disappointed. The portions are more than enough but it's the home made flavors that will bring you back. Very affordable and the staff is so friendly.

If you like chicken fried steak, theirs is among the best. I don't often splurge on CFS but Down Home's is worth the calories. Tasty sides and breakfast all day. A definite go to for my family.
