This is a small restaurant run by a man and his grandson. I loved the food. I had Brisket, baked beans and Potato Salad and all were excellent. The Mac and cheese was also great. My meal was priced at 10.95.

A Retiree and his grandson have had this little hole in the wall place for five years. I got fried shrimp and they were fried good and crisp. They didn't taste greasy at all. Hushpuppies were very good, but at least give three. Slaw also...More
