This is the place to go for fried chicken with all the fixin's served boarding house style. If you don't get full, it's your own fault. Amazing home-cooked food.

We elected to have the all you can eat meal. The food was excellent and the peach cobbler was outstanding. The atmosphere is unique as the restaurant is in a historical setting with many old buildings and a museum around the restaurant. The walls of...More
