Family style meal on Sunday's. Food is always great. We stop here on our way to Houston often on Sundays. Plater of 2 meats and bowls of side dishes, all very good. A couple of deserts to choose from, so save from for desert.

I like catfish but I like it extra crispy--I mean crispy--so I usually order it burnt! Most people don't understand that and send it out soggy--not Sissy. It was perfect. Try the house dressing. It has secret ingredients but described as "kinda like 1000 island."...More

This is a family style restaurant with country cooking at its best. Everything cooked like grandma's house. Homemade desserts, homemade rolls or cornbread when available. Only 3 miles outside of Cameron. Worth the trip off the beaten path to come have a Homestyle country meal at a reasonable price. Chicken fried steak is one of our most requested.
