This is the type of food that puts you to insta sleep. Ordered the smothered pork chop dinner with rice, greens and Mac and cheese, also ordered the chicken dinner with cabbage and potato salad. Was very happy with both meals and the food was fresh and hot. The man that took my order was extremely nice and offered me a free drink because I had to wait a little while for my food. It was definitely worth the wait and will be returning. They were super busy on a Saturday evening so order ahead or have patience.

I have tried this place twice. Both times via delivery but I can’t wait to eat in. The food was so good and fresh both times. It was seasoned perfectly and I can tell the gravy is from scratch unlike some soul food places. The portions are good. The wings were a nice size a included a little breast on each one. Eleven the whole fried Breast was juicy. Pork chops seasoned and tender. The price is also good. I’m I’m so glad I stumbled on this little gem.

If u been here, you know. If u ain't, well you don't. Let me just say this: I had the chicken strips. Best ever. Whole chicken tenderloins and perfectly fried. Delicious! And 5 will fill you up. Add in the seasoned fries and you are done! The fried chicken? Amazing! Banana Pudding? Real bananas and Nilla wafers. Look, I could go on but you get the picture. Good, down home, soul food and comfort food. Bring you appetite!
