    Chicken Fried Steak is a great entree but really all the main entrees are good and their burgers are second to none, you'll never leave this place hungry always more food than one can eat.....

    Food is all homemade and tastes great. Bring an appetite the 10 oz burger is closer to 1 lb and there is enough fries to feed the whole family.

    I was here a few days ago. Don't get the fried pickles, they are less pickle, more batter. The lunch chicken Philly is mostly mushrooms and bread, limited chicken. Split a burger and fries.

    Be sure to have a good work out before eating here. Huge portions and good (not healthy) food options. One meal feeds two people easily - even if you are both hungry
