    Mac and cheese is to die for but may put some into cardiac arrest. Pork shoulder meatloaf is great. Mashed potatoes I could eat everyday and a cocktail list thats lovely.My fav being the Georgia Fizz.

    Obviously the fried chicken! Chicken biscuit is tops. Chicken & waffle is a strong 2nd. Batter contains honey. Succulent chicken. Sides have different twists on seemingly traditional offerings.

    The fried chicken is some of the best in the country! But save room for the sides (we love the Mac & cheese) and a few biscuits!

    My husband and I went here and were a bit unimpressed. The chicken was crispy and cooked perfectly, but was way too sweet as it was drenched in honey. The sides were "meh". Wouldn't go back.

    The waffle was ok. I didn't like the syrup. The chicken was good. The Mac and cheese was okay. The banana pudding to go was not good. While it was extremely busy, we got good service.

    One of my all time fave brunch spots. The chicken and waffles are amazing but the sides are where the action is. Pimento and cheese and creamed collard greens are winners. Coconut cake A+.
