All the food is homemade and delicious! Fried chicken, real mashed potatoes, lots of flavorful vegetables. Bread pudding and banana pudding are excellent. Can't beat the price.

This restaurant is open for lunch and has a food buffet, salad bar and dessert buffet. The food is good "down home" country tasting. It is priced well and the service is quick.
