I love this place! I love how you just choose your meat and then decide how many sides you want. I was there on a Wednesday and chose smoked chicken, baked sweet potato, and a salad made with cucumber,tomatoes,and onions. Very delicious. The girl who waited on me was absolutely fantastic.

This restaurant is "old Dalton" - it was very active the closed for a few years, A young man from Dalton opened it and provided many locals with obs. The meat and vegetables do rotate - Tuesday is pinto beans, friend green tomatoes and squash casserole. Excellent food and a great value.

We were just driving through Daltons' downtown area and spotted this little restaurant on the corner. It seemed pretty crowded so we thought we would give it a try. You could tell once inside, it was a local favorite by the way everyone was talking to each other, asking about family and such. The pricing was very reasonable and the... More

The food was excellent! Our ball team went there as a group of 26. We were seated promptly. There were people waiting at the door to be seated so it was a busy night. We received our food about 10 - 15 minutes after we ordered. I was amazed. The liver was cooked just right and was outstanding. Everyone of... More
