  • Vietnamese owners FOR THE WIN.
  • Try all the sides
  • Corn muffins are the bomb. Warm sweet, crunchy and soft.
  • F R I E D C H I C K E N ! !
  • $12 for a very large platter of 3 pieces fried chicken, two sides (mac n' cheese and collard greens, mmm), and two pieces of cornbread. Wash it down with an ice cold beer.
  • Fried chicken or oxtail are the clear winners. We always resolve to order something else and then we arrive and can't resist and order fried chicken and oxtail again...
  • Split 4 pieces of fried chicken and Mac n cheese for 2 people!
  • the 3-piece fried chicken and Mac and cheese are must haves! although everything else is almost just as amazing.
  • Try the 3 piece fried chicken with a buttermilk waffle, and sweet tea to wash it down. Good music and service, too.
  • The sweet tea is the best I've ever had outside the South. Perfect sugar level.
  • Blackened catfish! Get!
  • If you want to try something that's not fried chicken, go with the ox tail. So damn good. And the cornbread was one of the best I've ever had! Alert: huge portions so be prepared to share or take out.
  • Three pieces of fat, juicy chicken ($12) - generously coated in flour and garlic salt with an undercurrent of what tastes like cayenne - come with two sides, plus excellent corn muffins.
  • Delicious and friendly service! Ox tail and fried chicken are amazing! Also free wifi which is their phone number
  • Two eggs, potatoes, toast and 3 fried chicken.
