Just nothing special except the crazy high prices. Every time I eat here I wonder why. Folk who like it must not be from around here, i.e. tourist. Nashville has a lot better meat and threes. Try Wendell's on Charlotte Ave. for real southern cooking.

We had fried pork chops and they were huge. The vegetables were fresh and great. Yeast rolls melt in your mouth. No meal is complete without desert and the chocolate chess pie is a must.
