Excellent, down home family-friendly menu with daily specials. Repeat your visits and the helpful staff will remember. Newcomers get the same excellent service. Try the pancakes.

Everyone calls you Honey! Breakfast is my favorite meal. This establishment fits the bill for good old American breakfast. The price is fair, service for the most part is excellent and food is real good.

My husband and I split an Eggs Benedict with country ham and two pancakes. It was tasty. The Eggs Benedict dish was a little too salty for my taste. The pancake was very good and so was the service we received! :)

Great fries. Wonderful staff. Had chicken and traditional gyro. Both excellent. Not my favorite Mac and cheese but my boys loved every bite. Not fancy not always very very good.

We ate here about 11:30am on a Sunday morning. We got a table after about 5 minutes, but the lines were building. This is a traditional Southern meat and vegetables restaurant. The food was good and came out in a reasonable time considering the crowd.
