Went here to get some chicken fried steak. The chicken fried steak was very good. Ordered an appetizer, but never got it. Took a long time to get food. I know it was busy but the place should be used to it.

The cinnamon roll was awesome. Not a tourist trap. Truly delicious. We went at two on a Wednesday and it was not crowded and the staff were very friendly. Next time I have to try the country fried steak. Looks so good.
