Husband I stopped in for lunch and I was excited to see they had vegetarian options. I found the cajun veggie "meat" loaf horribly bland and mushy which grossed me out. My husband tried a different dish and didn't like his either. I asked the waitress prior to ordering if the cajun loaf had a mushy texture and she said... More

Prices are hard to beat. Fun family southern cuisine place. Lots of food for a good price. My wife had the meatloaf and while I don't like meatloaf, this was pretty good.

Stopped by for an afternoon Lunch and we were not disappointed. The grilled chicken breast was delicious and the buffalo chick wrap was a good choice as well.

Might be one of favorite places to eat. Saw it on Diners Drive ins and Dives. The Chicken n Dumplings are the best I have ever had...hands down. Had hashbrown casserole with it and that is almost as good. They only have the hashbrown casserole on Saturdays. Each meal comes with a biscuit and a deviled egg which sounds strange...but... More

As we walked in I saw the 98 sanitation score as we walked in..NICE!! We don't eat anywhere lower than a 95! (Checkout your local sanitation score for your... More
