This place is primarily a take out meat and two joint. It does offer 2 booths on opposing ends that will accommodate 8 bodies; if they know each other well. Their small meals are a reasonable $10.

I decided on a small tip dinner with greens and mac and cheese.

Well the tips they serve are some of the skinniest I have had in a while. The meat was still tasty,just not a whole lot of it. Their sauce seemed to be a mixture of a prepared BBQ sauce doctored up with some hot sauce. Nice flavor just pretty commonplace. The greens were pretty good,hardly if any meat but they still held that hearty greens taste. The mac and cheese was pretty boring though. Cooked macaroni and a weak cheese sauce. The corn bread tasted like Jiffy. Which is fine with me,I like all types of corn bread; Jiffy included.

So I would give this place a 3+ out of 5. Good greens and decent cornbread and a fried pork chop that Persnickety Pat liked. I am sure their other food is at least as tasty,it just isn’t a destination for me. However I think if it was in my neighborhood I would try other things if for no other reason than curiosity. And to support local independents.

  1. 1) I am confused that the sign says “Prices may have changed” when it is clearly written on an eraserboard. 2) Seeing country fried steak reminds me of all the times I waited tables and wrote on my ticket, “CFS, baked-loaded, ranch” repeatedly each night. 3) It sound like their downhome food came from packages and hot sauce bottles. I love Jiffy; we eat it every week, but I’d like a restaurant to make things from scratch. Oh, well, them’s the breaks.

    • Yeah that line caught me too. I remember CFS tickets as well in one of my joints. Back then I gave a choice of cream or brown gravy. I was tempted to go for the CFS as well but I didn’t look forward to eating it with a spork.

  2. Well I love me some Jiffy cornbread, but this is not somethin I go out for. Or greens. Or mash. Or mac n’ cheese. LOL I don’t like to pay money for things I make well at home. The meat does not speak to me, here, either.
    I dunno, I’m picky.

    • I like going out not just for the Blog but because I just dig the experience of being waited on.I usually pick what I pick to gauge how others cook in order to judge. Yes I am that guy.As far as my eating I am not that picky. Cooking for others I am a down right SOB. I try to find a middle ground when I review.
