Nothing fancy, just clean and filling. Plenty of parking if you are towing. We recommend the BBQ meatloaf and chicken. I'm not a fan of banana pudding but this was good.

Despite arriving late the staff was warm and welcoming. The Banana Pudding is the real deal, worth stopping in just for dessert. The buffet was ok- when we were there everything was good. Simple heart warming food.

Loved this. Tried the buffet. Great choices and superb flavors of classic southern tradition. Especially loved the pulled pork and sauce, yam pudding, slaw and hush puppies. Friendly service and great value. Now a planned stop on all our 95 trips.

sorry I took so long to get back to you, but I cannot answer that question because I don't drink. I only drink water.
