Thus was our first visit. Fantastic! Our whole family loved the food and experience. Get the Fried Green Tomato burger. Onion rings are some of the best we've had.

Loved the burger I had there. It was the Carolina Style. Not sure you can go wrong as there were several other good ones on the menu as well. Also had an Orange Creamsicle shake that was outstanding. Highly recommend.
