Our go to place when family comes from out of town and wants home-style dining. Love the fresh fried green tomatoes, fried okra, hot "tossed" rolls and muffins. We have been numerous times, and everyone always requests to go bat. Pot roast is a favorite of mine. I hear the desserts are delicious (but I have never made it that... More

This is one of those family oriented good old country style cooking places designed to serve families and large groups. The famous bit is the "throwd rolls" in which fresh and usually warm yeast rolls and muffins are brought around and a guy will actually throw them to you to catch. He will hand them to you if you don't... More

This is definitely the place to bring the whole family for a good hearty meal. The environment is family friendly and so are the staff. They serve typical home-style cuisine, nothing fancy. The highlight of the visit is always when they bring out hot fresh rolls. For fun, the server tosses the rolls to the customers.

This was not the first time coming here but it will be my last. The service was slow, when offered things and said yes - never came, their famous rolls came out after I had given up eating the lousy food. I left most on the plate. I tried to speak to the manager and she told me I was... More

I had dinner with my team here becuse we heard about the endless hot rolls and muffins that come around while you eat. They actually toss them at you and you catch them. Aside from that the menu has something for everyone like chicken fried steak, burgers, ribs, salad meatloaf and more. Very polite staff and good food. You will... More

Large portions of American food. Burgers, steak, chops. For an additional fee you can get all the sides you want. They bring them frequently. Fun atmosphere. Always packed especially on weekends. Only drawback...hasn't been remodeled in forever. Needs a freshen up

This place was extremely cool before one of the original owners passed away, now it's just an old cow being milked, that really need to be sent out to pasture. Aside from its novelty of thrower rolls and muffins, there is nothing else that makes this place worth eating at. Either go to a more streamlined restaurant, spend a few... More
