I waited 5 minutes for a waitress who was surly at best. Another 20 minutes for my food to arrive and she plopped it down in front of me like a hot potato and walked away without even asking if I needed a refill - the bbq tasted like it was headed up from a can. The okra was good... More

This is where all the locals go for good food, good service & friendly atmosphere. The owner, Tommy Hall, cooks up the best burgers, hamburger steaks, and so on., They have everything from meat & veggies with homemade desserts to sandwiches, steaks, and barbecue. It's ALL delicious !!

This place is the best for any mean. The amount of food for the price can't be beat! I suggest this to everyone when they are looking for some good homecooking.

If you are looking for a good meal, look no further. They have delectable home cooking. The Brunswick stew is just yummy.the barbecue has a great flavor. Nothing fancy just good southern cooking and good southern company.

Tommy and the folks there are great. The service is all you could ask for and the food quality is unsurpassed! They use only the best and freshest ingredients. One of the cleanest kitchens around. I love this place!

Cheeseburger is to die for! You can tell they don't use regular ground beef. Waitresses are very sweet and owner is pleasant as ever. Nothing fancy here, they use paper plates and cups. Also try the meatloaf on Tuesdays and chicken and dumplings on Thursdays-delicious!!!! Chicken & dressing is a great too, but I'm not sure which days they do... More

We order a burger plate that comes with 2 sides, the onions are one whole slice, not a couple of rings. The coleslaw is yummy and fries are crinkles. The service is always friendly, and I think sometimes they have a Sunday lunch special of homemade items like fried chicken breasts and meatloaf and roast beef. Really good home cooking!

A change of location did not help them one bit. The food is putrid, the wait staff old and stale and I will never eat there again.

Has a nice family atmosphere. It's not fine dining, it's relaxed and comfortable, and mainly the food is always excellent. They cook it right in front of you, and everything is fresh. Best Hamburger by a landslide in calhoun. Right off the interstate off exit 312, try one for lunch if you're passing through sometime. You'll be glad you did.
