    Just an amazing place. The chicken is just regular fry chicken. The mashed potato and the gravy are the key things here. No wonder they don't allow take box only bag of chicken that you can take home.

    Fried chicken >> chicken fried steak. Sides were pretty tasty but the dessert was grossly sweet
  • Joana C.
    They don't have a printed menu which I believe would be better to any non native English speakers to understand. The food is good!

    Grab a kids meal to go. It's under $5 and you get 3 tenders, honey mustard, taters, gravy, green beans, corn, salad, a biscuit, honey and butter.

    Never asked the waitress if the sweet corn is non-GMO. Turned out my girlfriend was thinking the same thing. It's the kind of thing you'd really like to know about their food.

    If there is a healthy bone in your body you may not enjoy it. The salad is tossed with a dressing, and the veggies are greasy and buttery. The meat is good. Everything was much too rich for me!
