Good food!! Highly recommend! I had the pot roast and fried okra as a side. They really make a great pot roast and home made fried okra!

This was our first time here on Thursday. The food was great and servers very nice. This is simple country cooking, much better than Cracker Barrel! Get there early because this place fills us fast!

I gave it three tries. Poor service and food is mediocre at best. There are much better options in Huntsville. Try City Cafe.
