    The police chief special and the 3lb cinnamon roll. Delicious! We opted for the queso and the gravy to be on the side for the chicken fried steak. Gravy was way better. Fed us for at least 3 meals!

    Omg...this place is a awesome little dive with amazing food. Chicken fried chicken smothered in queso and 3lb cinnamon rolls are a must. The place is packed so expect a wait....but so worth it.

    This place has been my favorite place in town for years. They're famous for their chicken fried steak, but if you ask me, it's ALL about the chicken fried chicken.

    The Sheriff's Special (chicken fried steak) covers the entire plate and with the double portion sides it comes with is big enough for 2 people. Delicious!!
