What you expect from where locals eat! We have tried 6 or 8 different meals and have never been disappointed! Give them a try!

Good reviews drew us to try. Liver was overcooked, dry & tough. Vegetables were quite good. Corn bread and biscuits were pretty good, but not great. Will try again sometime as maybe we did not make the best choice.

The food was plentiful and just plain good. Husband had fried catfish that he said was great. I sampled the hush puppies and they were gooooood! I had the breaded pork chop which was very tasty but too much gravy for my liking. It was easy to scrape to the side. Service was good. This is a place that the... More

My husband and I stopped here after coming through Cherokee. I wanted good home cooked food and that is exactly what we got.
