    Everything on the menu is scratch made and simple, from the eggs and grits to the chicken fried steak with ladles of brown gravy. But it's her Southern Fried Chicken that has diners lining up. Read more

    All I can say is, "Bravo!" Tea and lemonade spot on. Fried chicken & chicken fried steak out of this world & crispy. Macaroni & cheese made my wife wax poetic about her childhood.

    Small dining room, but they work fast. True southern food. Chicken, catfish, okra, greens... you can't go wrong. Portions are filling. Try to leave room for peach cobbler!

    The Brisket is amazing!! Reminds me of growin up in the South! Cornbread dressing is definitely a good side to a great BBQ meal

    This place is great southern cooking. Get the greens and fried chicken. You will leave full and in need of a nap.

    You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, but the catfish is to die for! Make sure you get hush puppies with it.

    The fried chicken is good, the sweet potatoes are outstanding, and they have the best fried okra in WA.

    It's a wait, especially if it's busy. But man, is it ever worth it. Chicken wings like the things were on steroids. Great googly moogly!

    The fried chicken is totally worth the drive from Tukwila. It will spoil you for fast food chicken.

    This place attacked my three weaknesses...... breakfast spot, a greasy spoon, and Southern cooking. I need to go back for lunch & dinner

    Not my first time eating here, but probably the last. Food was cold when it came out the first time. Myself and several others in my party sent food back. Got more cold food. Several of us got sick.

    Came with a group of 5 for midweek lunch, waited 45 minutes, and ended up having to get everything to go. Love the food, but the wait was bad.
