Resently purchased by Elliott and Shannon Dismuke whom are continuing to serve in the excellent service that was provided by previous owners. Elliott has added several bbq and stew dishes that his parents were famous for. A great downtown local favorite in a landmark building.

We had a generous weekday lunch, arriving just when they opened. Service was quick and the "meat and three" with fried chicken and hamburger steak entrees were very good. The cornbread tasted like an authentic southern recipe-which is nice for a change! The coconut cake...More
