Hungry? Stop by this Almost Famous location for a great meal and you won't be disappointed. The portions are more than enough but it's the home made flavors that will bring you back. Very affordable and the staff is so friendly.

If you like chicken fried steak, theirs is among the best. I don't often splurge on CFS but Down Home's is worth the calories. Tasty sides and breakfast all day. A definite go to for my family.
