Chicken Pot Pie was the BEST!!!! Big chucks of chicken and al-dente veggies. Also ordered the tortilla soup, totally off the chain! Bold flavor and filling. Only complaint, bowl was not bigger. Service was fun and incredibly proactive to our needs.

Good food and good service for the plate lunch type. The typical meat and three is a meat and two here. The biggest flaw with this place is calling it southern home cooking and serving a gritty pound cake and calling it cornbread.

I liked Black Eyed Pea much better. Food is adequate, nothing to rave about and I do not crave this place. Family likes to eat here occasionally, so I go.

Unpretentious place with surprisingly good food. Our group of 6 was seated quickly . Service was attentive and fast, so perfect for families with kids. Each dinner came with a side or two, and they were so good that we greedily tasted each others' side dishes . The sweet potato casserole was amazing. Plus a basket of mixed breads. Total... More
