We were on the highway heading back to Chicago, for some reason Google maps, had rerouted us, and we ended up passing by this establishment, and as we were also on the lookout for a place to dine, we choose to turn around and try out this place. We never heard of it before, so we didn't know what to... More

I had passed by here many times and finally decided to stop in. I was surprised because I thought I was going into a standard BBQ place. Instead I found a small buffet. I don't know if it was the time of day I stopped by, if it was just normal, or if it's because as I later heard, that... More

Great selection of sides and desserts to go along with ham, fried chicken, ribs, livers, dumplings, brisket, pulled pork. True southern cooking!

I eat here weekly for lunch. The food is great home cooking. They have everything from bar-b-que to fried chicken and liver and onions. The vegetables are good too and there's always a good country dessert such as cobbler.

Cute ma and pop restaurant with excellent food. Typically buffets are hit or miss, but they definitely exceeded expectations. The food was hot, fresh, and delicious. If you are looking for a good meal with a decent selection, this is the place to go! Also, Fridays are apparently "catfish day." If you enjoy catfish, it was breaded and cooked to... More

You start with Southern Hospitality as you come in the door, and have it until you leave. The food is great! The best greens I ever ate. Everything was delicious! A rating from the health dept, which is important. Friendly, good food, you leave full, feeling like you've been a visitor instead of a customer!

While searching for bbq joints along I-24, we came upon this restaurant, which does serve pulled pork but which is about much, much more. It has - hands down - the best home cooking and the best depth of delicious dishes that my husband and I have ever found in a restaurant. Served buffet style were mashed potatoes and gravy,... More

Went in with too high of expectations. So this is buffet only. At least when we went the only thing I could recommend is the catfish and the peach cobbler. The only pork was ham hock and not very good. Can say we went but defiantly won't be back again.
