Find this place if you’re a fried chicken fan.

Close quarters, energetic atmosphere, smiles everywhere from staff and customers. We got the buffet, which also featured jambalaya, greens, bread pudding, and just about everything else you need. Couple sweet teas, and it’s heaven.

Definitely a destination for your trip.

Just the best home town cookin'! and the peach cobbler was the best (even cold the next day, since we didn't have room to eat it after the ample plate of fried catfish!)

This restaurant is a little out of the way but the food, staff and atmosphere are terrific. You can either choose of the menu or go big and try a whole heap of local foods of the buffet. No silver service but great food

BEST I HAVE EVER EATEN! Our waitress was wonderful, She is the owner's daughter, I THINK she said but family none the less. The homemade biscuits were the best as well. I went on a Sunday morning before church would have been out and got seated right away. The food is cooked to order but still not a long wait. The price was very reasonable at $9.99 for the dish that was LOADED with shrimp and enough to take home and finish for dinner. The ONLY reason I did not give it 5 "stars" is because the "hostess", white, female probably in her 50's was just plain rude. She wasn't at the desk when we walked in and never having been there before, we kink of mosseyed towards a table and the waitress said, "you can sit right ! there"-But when we left, the hostess was at the stand by the door and both my friend and I said a very friendly "Bye" and she literally looked right over us and walked back towards the kitchen area. The whole time we were there though, she just had this sour look on her face and not friendly to anyone AT ALL. Such a shame because everyone else was so pleasant. Will definitely be back though as I am dying to try the fried chicken everyone talks about
