The employees were amazing, the food was just too salty or too much sugar. I had fried chicken, mac and cheese (which the macaroni was way over cooked, I also let the manager know, because it could have been a one time mess up) collard greens and my friend had the cabbage. The sweet too was definitely way above my... More

I stop occasionally for dinner after work. Love the macaroni and cheese. The cabbage is also quite tasty. The meatloaf and fried fish are also good. Portions are generous. All in all, a good place to stop if you are in the area and looking for good food.

The service was warm and the food was excellent, and the atmosphere was cozy. The server first brought a warm, buttery cornbread muffin with a hint of cinnamon. Then, I had fried pork chops with gravy, rice, greens, and mac & cheese. I enjoyed the entire meal and will have it again when I return.

Portions were large. Staff was friendly. Pork chops were tough and mashed potatoes had unique flavor. Had to ask for metal utensils to cut food. We enjoyed the corn muffins.

Staff was friendly, eager to please. They went out of their way to help. Given good food, quality desserts, and was good pricing. Only issue was that their take-out line took up a lot of time, so food took time to arrive.!
