Prices are in line with quality. At $6 a plate, I wouldn’t expect the quality of Saltgrass or Vernon’s Kuntry Katfish. I ordered the Chicken Fried Steak, mashed potatoes, and green beans. The CFS was seasoned nicely and was very good. Everything else was just okay. The mashed potatoes were a bit lumpy, and I don’t think they were lumpy from chunks of fresh potato. They tasted kind of like instant potatoes that had been “doctored” a bit. The gravy was also instant. This was a real disappointment considering the fact that the cfs was so good. Who wants fake gravy on a great cfs? For dessert, I ordered the bread pudding. To say that I was a bit disappointed would be an understatement. It was very rubbery and its only saving grace was that it had real whipped cream on top. I wouldn’t order that again.
For the price, this food was decent. I definitely will go there again to give them a second chance. If you decide to go, don’t set your expectations too high, and you won’t be disappointed. The owners seem like very nice people, and maybe they need to get the kinks worked out of this new restaurant. I say we need to give ‘em a chance.
