This place has amazing food. They have a variety of what you would think is a typically Sunday lunch. Fried chicken, dressing, catfish. Make sure if you're thinking of coming here on a weekend to get here early it fills up quick. Well worth the wait if you do have to wait.

All of the old timers of Forsyth county love to meet here for breakfast, the food is pretty good. Not quite home style, but as close as you can get in a restaurant

Overcooked hard biscuits and inattentive service. I won't be going back. Eggs were cooked well and the lunch buffet, which I perused on the way out, did look good.

Mediocre at best. The food was overly greasy and didn't seem fresh. The dishes didn't seem homemade or original or frankly, very "southern". The restaurant itself is very old, very dated and felt dirty. I wouldn't go back.

We like to stop here on our way out of town. Simple standard breakfast of eggs, grits and toast. Always good! They, also, have a breakfast buffet, Sunday buffet and lunch. A lot of regulars!

Stopped by late on a Sunday afternoon for the buffet. Food was typical buffet type food, nothing to rave about, but for the price not too bad. The service was friendly and accommodating. You can also order from a menu.

I have breakfast here more Sunday mornings than not. The breakfast buffet is really good. The eggs are real eggs and they have great biscuits and gravy. Pretty nice variety and they serve breakfast until 11:00. I like the lunch buffet also. Great fried chicken and sides. This place is very old and dated but to me, that's part of... More

Ate at this restraint on our way through town. Got the buffet. My wife loved the fried chicken. I liked it also, but especially like the dessert cake and the custard pie. Staff was very nice and friendly. Bathrooms were clean. Décor was worn but clean. Would eat here again if the opportunity presented itself.

We had breakfast food here (not the buffet) and it was very good. Everyone was friendly and we really enjoyed this place. This is not a 5 star Atlanta- based restaurant. It is a roadside diner with friendly people, many locals, and great breakfast. I haven't tried anything else yet, but we will be back. If you are looking for... More
