The food is home cooking at its best with unbelievable low prices! I highly recommended trying it anytime you are in the Madison/Jackson MS area.

Visited with a friend and our four kids. Food is country style. Was still pretty fresh and hot even toward closing. Outside has old tractors kids can play on. Wasn’t phenomenal food but pretty decent.
