We went on a Monday for a late lunch around 2pm. I got the 2 piece fried chicken, which was crispy and juicy, and the macaroni is the best I have ever had. No kidding, it is phenomenal! My father loved his smothered pork chop and his birthday desserts! We will be back soon!

Loved the food. I ordered the seafood fettuccine and would definitely order it again. It came with some fried catfish, which was also good. My friend ordered the pork chops and I had a bite. They were good but I loved the fettuccine more. Very limited hours, it took us stopping by three times before we found them open. Not... More

Ordered the fried pork chops and it was served with rice/gravy, cabbage, and a corn muffin. I did not care for the cabbage (too sweet). The food did not have the home style flavor I expected.

It was good. First time going. Will go again. It is a small place but clean. People were coming to buy food all while I was there.

We went on a whim while in Arlington. We were greeted as we came in the door. Tried the Seafood Etoufie and I am not sorry. It was loaded with shrimp and crawfish tails and seasoned to perfection. It was fantastic. Topped it off with a piece of pecan peach cobbler that they warmed and topped with ice cream. Very... More

From the red beans and rice to the smoked meatloaf to the smothered cabbage...this is by far my favorite restaurant in the DFW area so far:)

Menu changes based on when you visit but the food definitely has soul to it. Great cajun options and generous portion sizes. Makes a great quick eat and to go meal in the area.

I visited here on a Tuesday and had read reviews and couldn't wait to try it. I like to support small locally run places. The place is small and locally run and has a hometown hole in the wall vibe to it that I liked. You go through a line and order what you want and get it and pay... More

Cant say anything negative about this place, we absolutely loved it. We came across it by accident whilst staying in a nearby hotel. Great food and a great price. If we were ever in the area again we would make this our first stop.
