It's great to see old faces and old family friends and the food is good come and see the past of the city and live for the day
We were shopping at Lodge cast iron and discovered ourselves hungry. We were skeptical at the front door and thought about the dairy freeze across the way. A kind voice said "just go on in and find an empty table." Being from out of town and not knowing better, that was what we did. While reading our menu, the kindest person from the other end of our table suggested the fried chicken. Then hers came. Traditional southern fare and damn good. Very friendly atmosphere. We sat at the locals table not knowing better and they welcomed us right in. Food was perfect diner food, not greasy, just delicious. Coconut cake was outstanding and Wanda suggested chocolate pie too, also outstanding. Only wish we could fly in for lunch once a month. Thank you for our best meal in 10 days of travel. Don't let the decor fool you! Find a table, sit down, and enjoy. You wont be sorry.
The greeting when we walked in was amazing. I thought the guy was playing around, but he really just talked that fast in a thick accent. It only got better when the waiter started talking. He sounds like Herbert from Family Guy. The entertainment value alone was worth going in. The food pushed it over the top. I got the prime rib sandwich. The meet was delicious and overflowing the bun. I was told they grow their own tomatoes outside the restaurant. I followed the other reviews and topped it off with the coconut cake. If you don't have this while you are there, YOU ARE WRONG! It was so light and delicious. The piece they gave me was huge! If I'm around, I'm down... to go back.

A dying breed in the south, the dairy bar. Greasy burgers, overworked fryers, huge milkshakes, chili slaw dogs, and the lifer waitron who could really give a damn about your order. LOVE it! If you're expecting a nice smile and a, "it's a pleasure to serve you" like at a fast food joint, you'll be disappointed. This place is a jewel that sparkles from the sweat and tears of the people that dine and work here. AND, the food is made in hurry and perhaps without much care, but it does the job. I left happy and not hungry and....isn't that the point? I also got the T-shirt. ($15, no kidding.)
It's exactly what you want it to be! Great Shakes!! We love supporting the local economy and prefer to stop at places like this. They will mix your shake any way you want. I had a chocolate/strawberry!
The building is what drew us in. Great neon signage, hometowny feel, and police cars in the parking lot - all signs pointing to the best dive shack in town. Sadly this wasn't the case. Or perhaps it was. Maybe I just ordered the wrong thing. I would recommend you stick to faster foods here if stopping by. I ordered the fried chicken with mashed potatoes, green beans, and fried okra. Fried chicken - meh. Reminded me of high school cafeteria fried chicken. Fried okra - eh. Straight out of the freezer and into the fryer. Mashed Potatoes - bleh. Pour flakes from the box and mix with water. Green Beans - eheheheh...bleh. One spoonful was enough. My cohort got a club sandwich and fries and seemed to enjoy both. Is this a case of ordering the wrong menu item?? I think so.
