    Is that a hotcake? I can't see my plate! The hotcake recipe is based on Grandma's pound cake recipe with buttermilk added. So good you better plan a long nap or a serious trail hike after eating one!

    Great service, our waitress was consistently coming by to offer coffee refills. Great biscuits, on the denser side. Very packed but the staff was quick about getting people seated, served, and paid up

    Great southern food! Very fast even at 11:30am when they're busy! The BANANA PUDDING is a MUST!! Everything else was just as good but wow, if I ever drive near raleigh again I am coming back for sure

    Fresh, homemade biscuits. The gravy is a bit salty; but good and chunky bits of sausage come along with it. Amazing and super friendly wait staff. I'll be back for lunch next time in Raleigh.

    Amazing food and quick, friendly service. They give you a lot of food for a low price. I could eat here everyday! The homemade Chicken and Pastry is the best!

    I don't know when they changed their french toast from white bread slices to slices of heaven but I highly recommend it.

    The turkey sausage was the best I have tried this far. It wasnt dry at all and they cooked it just the way I like it-burnt.

    Make sure to add cheddar to your grits instead of butter or gravy. Delicious!

    I had the pancake w/ bacon and water to drink. The pancake was cold. 3 strips of regular, fatty bacon and cold syrup. I don't think, no, I know I will not be back! You guys missed the mark on this one

    If you are in the area at lunch, hit up Big Ed's City Market. Ask for Carole and tell her The Texans sent you. Home Cooking at it's B-E-S-T!
