This is a place that takes you back to dinner at your grandmother's from another time. The chicken is fantastic and the sides are good old fashioned southern cooking. The biscuits and sorghum are a nice way to finish off the meal.

Good home cooked food served family style. The menu is limited to a few meats and only specific sides are served. Menu varies some by specific location. Sides are corn mashed potatoes gravy and green beans.
