"If you are looking for Southern comfort food, this is your place in Corpus. We had the chicken fried steak, which is award-winning here and I can definitely see why! Awesome crispy breading, perfectly cooked. The green beans are flavored with ham, and the mashed potatoes remind me of how my parents cooked them. Delicious :)"

"Ate here for the first time today and it was delicious!!! Fast service, clean, refreshing and a home style atmosphere I highly recommend it and will definitely be back. I ate the chicken fried steak (amazing flaky crust with great tasting gravy)with homemade mash potatoes(lituraly fresh mashed potatoes) and broccoli (fresh fully cooked) I also was able to taste the potato soup that makes my mouth water just thinking of it and the croutons with cheese were so amazing just like the roll that came with my dinner, bread toasted homemade and FRESH!!! Great place to eat with the family very reasonable priced as well!! 5 star rating for sure!!!"
