I had meatloaf, zipper peas and cheese grits. My better half had chicken livers, okra and rutabagas. The basket of cornbread and biscuits were served right up and the tea was sweet. We'll be back. Photo is from right when we started digging in.

We stop here when passing thru Dothan. Staff is always friendly and attentive. Food quality and quantity can't be beat . Fried chicken is good but meatloaf is the best. You will leave full.

We ate here while we were traveling in late Feb. We had a delicious meal of catfish and southern style side dishes. The server was so very friendly, the portions generous, and the price was very reasonable.
