Went for brunch on a Saturday morning around 10:30. Had to wait about 35 minutes outside for a table for two. It was a little chilly, but they had one stand up heater to take the edge off. I ordered the BLT with fried green...More

Small- med size restaurant with great menu. Lots of awesome options to please anyone who loves southern cuisine. I sampled the fantastic biscuits with apple butter and the fried chicken brined in sweet tea. Yum.

I suggest you come here during the work week. On weekends, the line out the door can be 45 minutes long . Also, the breakfast menu is far better than the lunch menu. If you like a home-style Southern breakfast, this place is the best,...More
