    Food's pretty good. Some items are hit & miss tho. Fried chicken, sweet potato soufflé, broccoli casserole, oysters & greens are good money. Bread & cinnamon rolls are delicious 2. Good service too

    Lots of dining rooms makes this feel like people kept coming for the traditional southern food, so the restaurant kept adding rooms. When you go to the restroom, remember what room you came from.

    Friendly service with a private parking lot. The fried green tomatoes are really good especially with the spicy dipping sauce.

    A bona fide Atlanta institution. The framed, autographed photos that run up and down nearly every wall attest to that. Johnny Mercer, James Brown, Jimmy Carter and Jesse Ventura, have all eaten here. Read more
