My daughters and I ate here and it was wonderful! I had roast, mac and cheese, Lima beans and cornbread! Both of my girls had veggie plates. They loved theirs too! The pies are great too! It was crowded but the line moved fast!

On a stopover on our way home we tried this restaurant (unfortunately they were closed on our trip south). As soon as we walked in someone explained that they are cafeteria style and directed us to the line. You can easily get takeout here but we opted to eat in. My husband had the hamburger meatball in mushroom gravy and... More

It's the best home cooked food you'll find anywhere and they put more on my plate then I can eat, but I sure try. Home town atmosphere where you're sure to see someone you know.

Very easy serving line, get through the line and seated quickly. Prices are reasonable and affordable. Parking can be a slight problem if they are crowded, which usually they are. Can't go wrong with lunch here!!

Serving line "meat and three" style restaurant with a rotating menu of southern favorites. Unexpected spot for delicious steaks on weekend nights! The shredded ham is a favorite with our family.

Small inside, but the food that comes from their kitchens is Fantastic. Price is good. Eaten there many times & never been dissapointed. Not open on weekends, When 5 o'clock Friday comes, it starts filling up.

Any reviews not recommending this place are from people who do not like southern food served by incredibly nice people. My only complaint is that they are closed on Saturday. If you visit when they have carrots, trust me- TRY THEM!!! The peanut butter pie is to die for. I have not tried anything that is not great. Ham, roast... More

I have eaten there many times and the food is always good for a steam table menu. The pies are amazing and they have several different sugar free pies
