Food goes hard, definitely a positive experience from the friendliness of the staff to the atmosphere copped that double southern burger and boy was my guy at the front desk speaking the truth when he said they make them right!!! 8.5/10 burger chicken was solid too 7.5/10 this place definitely has some potential to be a solid staple of food in the community shoutout my guy working the cash register and shout out to the guy who asked me if i needed any sauce too overall 8.3/10

I had been here years before and was over charged for the meal. This time there was a different staff and atmosphere in the restaurant. The clerk was kind and helpful. The place was clean. I didn't see any bathroom signs so i used my sanitizer. The gumbo was great!!! I will come back for that dish again.

This is my 3rd time here, and the food is pretty good. The fried chicken wings are my fav, the crunch on those bad boys I haven’t experienced anywhere else ! I tried the fish today; again it’s the crunch for me😁. The Mac and cheese isn’t the “down south grandma cooking” Mac and cheese but it’s cool.

Food was good and fresh. However my boyfriend(Mario)order was incorrect and was last time too. If I can get my order right next time I’ll put a rebuttal review. Mario placed the order under his name. Adding to this review because the owner responded saying he never heard of Mario. It was Mario Jones today. Ordered through Uber eats. I have no reason to lie, and I left a honest review instead of trying to act like we never ordered from there. Focus more on getting orders right.

First time here, glad we decided to give them a try. I ordered the hamburger and fries and my daughter had the chicken sandwich and fries. Everything was really good. The service was even better. They greeted most customers by name which is always a plus for me, creates repeat customers. We will definitely be back.

I ate the gizzards and they were cooked wonderfully. Not hard but light, crispy and tender. Most places overcook them. The staff was wonderful, informative and pleasant to talk to. The place was clean and upkept. The atmosphere was very much to be desired. There was a church group across the street in the parking lot preaching over a microphone. No idea what was up with that. When I got my food there was a homeless lady that came up to me asking me and others in the dining room for money to eat. I said no and kept eating. Got some food to go and left. I would go back but drive thru only if I did.

I had been craving catfish and I admit I’m picky about it! When I read their info and saw that the 1st location was in Shreveport,Louisiana, we had to try it! I was NOT disappointed! Perfectly breaded with just enough Cajun spices to warm my mouth! Made this East TX born gal happy & a bit homesick at the same time. Slaw was very good & green beans were well seasoned & cooked long enough to take the “canned” taste away. Husband had the jumbo Fried Shrimp with potato salad & fried okra… nothing left on his plate but the Shrimp tails! Well done!!
