Home style food. Lot's of choices. Everything is good. Foot long hotdogs are the bomb !!! They have daily specials at reasonable prices. Chicken, chops, fish, burgers, hot dogs and lots of veggies.

We love Golden Skillet so much we made a 45 minute drive from Raleigh just to get a Big Skillet Chicken Sandwich. The Chicken is tender and moist with a crispy coating. We had 2 cars full of 7 people and we ordered 11 sandwiches. We drove home full and happy!!!
