What People are Saying

“A Good Price”

“Everyone that I have dealt with here is so nice and helpful. They make you feel at home. I would recommend them to anybody who wants good food and lots of food for a good price.”


“Great Food”

Great food. Great service.  Chicken fried steak is my favorite of all I have ever had!  No joke.”


“Friendly Service”

Friendly staff and delicious food! All the food was tasty, but I especially liked their soft dinner rolls, bbq beans with pulled pork in them, and sweet tea. We were so impressed that we returned the next morning for breakfast.


“I’m Full”

I must say was different. My plate was clean as I sat there waiting on my wife to finish. Then she said, “I’m full and can’t eat anymore.” Being the considerate person I am I finished what she left behind. Hey folks this is a good place to eat.
