You have to been born or raised in the South to understand how much a part of the culture a restaurant is that serves one type of meat with three side dishes...all of which the diner choices from several offerings. This is a classic Southern cafe also in that it serves vegetables and fruits (when applicable) that are nearly always... More

If your looking for country cooking, this is your place. It's located in a shopping center behind the Gilmer County School Board's offices. It's a little dark inside due to the paneling on all the walls, but the good is good and service is friendly.

Sorry the food was bland and service ok. Can't say I'd return. Didn't try the dessert. I was disappointed because the locals said it was good.

Cheap lukewarm canned food. I had the chicken pot pie with peas, green beans, and roll. The chicken pot pie tasted like it was canned too. My husband had whole potatoes with meatloaf. Canned whole potatoes. We had to ask for knifes as they were not included in the silverware. The waitress told us the customers steal the knives so... More

Went for lunch. The service was great. The waitress explained how the menu worked. I got BBQ pork and deviled egg and butter beans. The food was served hot and with friendly service. The cashier was great to end the lunch with.

The sides (beans, green beans, mashed potatoes, gravy, etc.) seemed to be from a box or can and not freshly made. The chicken and chicken livers were great

Restaurant shows some age but don't let that fool you, food and service were excellent. Main draw here is meat and vegetables. Had the chicken & dumplings that were excellent, plenty of food at a great price.
