This place opened a few weeks ago. I have been three times and it is awesome. hand made tamales- both chix-pork- and veggie. Great drink selection. Also beer available. Hours vary, but as of now they are Thursday thru Sunday 12 noon to 6 p.m. or so. Go early because they sell out sometimes. Very reasonable.

We have not eaten here in many years and decided on a whim to see what they had to offer. The food was good along with the side salad. The portions are generous, my husband had the biggest baked potato we have ever seen at a restaurant. My only complaint is that they have the tables packed together which makes... More

Our service was great and the food was fantastic. Good southern cooking. Their sweet potato fries were heavenly. This restaurant is well worth coming to for a great meal, great service, and friendly local banter.

It's a local, family-type restaurant, with surprisingly GREAT sweet potato "steak" fries! They have daily specials, and very reasonably priced. I had a shrimp basket with the sweet potato fries and cole slaw, and everything was quite tasty. To top it off, they have wonderful sweet tea with free refills and a giant free cup to go! I highly recommend... More

Our family stopped here on the way back from Florida. We had read other reviews saying it was good so we wanted to give it a try and I'm glad we did. I had the fried pork chop with green beans and a baked potato. It was awesome. My daughter enjoyed her hamburger and fries and my husband enjoyed his... More

Great burger and sweet tea finally. Server was nice too. Quaint little town, on the Square. Few miles off interstate, we'll worth it

I loved my stuffed potato. Family really liked the chicken in their Caesars salad. Olives in it were unusual, but mentioned on menu. Great old building and obviously loved by locals. Only complaint was half of the peanuts were stale.

Honestly one of the best steaks you can hope for. We have lived in the area for almost 4 years and this place was an instant favorite. I go for the Conestoga Sirloin with blue cheese and it's fantastic. Sweet potato fries are also great. Nice little ice cream and sweet shop before you leave where you pay.

Thank James M
