We visited this location years ago and weren't impressed. We decided to try them again. I'm so glad we decided to try them again. We got there as the doors opened at 11am. The catfish was hot fresh and well seasoned. The hush puppies were really good too. The sweet tea was perfect Southern style extra sweet. Everything was GREAT!!!
