Price can't be beat! Best fried chicken around and the bread pudding is just unbelievably delicious! Great service too! Great example of southern hospitality! Buffet style with 3-4 kinds of meat and vegetables/side dishes and a couple of desserts. Friday is their seafood day.

But this place changed my mind. The food was fresh, amazing and original. Lots of traditional and not so traditional foods. This is a hidden gem that a few friends turned me on to. The best deal is lunch and the early bird dinner. I'll...More
