Plan to wait at least an hour, but it is worth the wait. Food is served family style and they seat the entire table at one time. This is a very fun and unique experience. The food and the service is awesome!

Wonderful food, a great introduction to Southern cooking, and overall fun experience — except for the old pervert at the cashier’s stand, who besides gaudily counting his cash, made an alarmingly inappropriate sexual remark to me about my sister (in front of our entire family).
