I had a chance to try the pumpkin bread, the banana bread, and a shortbread cookie... just outstanding. Check the hours - they close early on Sat. Don't miss it!

They do one thing...and they do it best - fried chicken sandwich. If you don't want fried chicken sandwich, I would say don't even bother. It's just.... the best. It's a wait that's worth every minute. You line up; you walk in; you get a...More
