Not that we don't like Chinese food but we wanted southern food. When we looked this place up we were so happy to see it was a great place!!! We really enjoyed it and would go back the next time we visit that area.

Great food, great service. I had very good skillet fried chicken and collards. The batter and moistness and seasoning of the fried chicken was fabulous. The grease seemed stale so the taste of the cast iron did not come thru. My collards were well seasoned,...More

Great restaurant for unique southern cooked meals. Clean restaurant, safe Cary location, but definitely on the mid to higher end price wise. Doesn't matter if it's catfish, meatloaf, fried pickles (try the voodoo sauce!) or a pulled pork sandwich, you just can't go wrong here....More

What a poor job we did of representing our restaurant and our mission to you during your visit. Our staff should be experienced as nothing other than friendly, attentive, and prompt. I'm so very disappointed that we were perceived as anything else. It would be...More

But filled with old people. By far the best restaurant we have found in Cary/Raleigh. Outstanding service and the prices are very reasonable for the food. Wine by the bottle is a great price here. I bring all business meetings here for dinner.More

The decent food was overshadowed by the poor service and lack of attention to detail. The food is quite rich, but thoughtfully prepared. I expect water and caffeine shortly after sitting down, not 20 minutes later.More
