    Sunday Brunch is served from 12 to 4pm. $20 for adults and $11 for kids for all you can eat. Come check it out for a sample of everything. Fried chicken and fried catfish was very good. Rib was cold.

    Fried Chicken,Catfish and Collared Greens are the standout winners. Sugar tea tasted peculiar on my visit.

    Amazing Mac and cheese, corn bread is awesome, and the fried catfish couldn't be better. To bring it all together out have a very friendly staff. I'm always impressed when I come here.

    Please try the BBQ Chicken and or the Fried Fish with salad and their amazing macaroni and cheese. The staff is hit or miss and are best behaved when the owners are present.

    The chicken is a must whenever you come here, the brisket isnt the best, so I dont recommend it for your first time.

    The people who work here are all great and when the food is fresh its delicious but the Sunday buffet leaves something to be desired. Turns out bbq wasn't meant to be left out for more than 15 minutes
