    Really cute interior, big portions, standard breakfast fair. Stick to the basics.. eggs, bacon and home fries, which were solid. Biscuits are very sweet, gravy tastes canned.

    The catfish sandwich is messy and amazing. The fish is incredibly moist but crispy on the outside - our server said it was his favorite thing on the menu.

    I unfortunately had a mediocre experience here. Biscuits and gravy kind of sucked. Bacon and sausage were all right. Fries were good.

    Omg. Sweet tea is the perfect sweetness. Just a little bit. Collared greens, corn pudding, chicken. Banana pudding is phenominal, holy moly. baby was happy and kicking the whole time.

    Order your rotisserie chicken with a side of kitsch (check out the thrift store artwork on the walls) at this tiny Humboldt Park spot.

    If it is spring/summertime sit out back in the patio area. BYOB. Drink cheap beer and eat damn good breakfast under the sun. Or damn good roasted chicken. You can't go wrong here.

    This is the best roasted chicken I have ever had. The biscuits are understated, but the fries are the best in Chicago. But seriously, the roasted chicken is one of the top-5 things I've ever eaten.
