This place is amazing! While the line to get in was long, this place is definitely worth the wait. You get a lot of great food for the prices. This place has a nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Our food was out very fast and tasted SO good. I am not disappointed and will definitely return!

Went on a whim to a local breakfast joint. We were not disappointed! The menu has a huge selection to choose from. My boyfriend got a dish with their signature chicken both times. I have to say I was very impressed with the way it was so tender and juicy and well season too.

Pretty awesome breakfast spot. The menu is huge! I got the chicken fried skillet. Came with the biscuit and pancakes! So much food for a great price. Service was solid. We went on a Sunday morning and were seated right away. The place is very large and plenty of staff.

This place is delicious and Pepper our server was so lovely! We had brunch around 10am on a Sunday and there was only a 5-10 minute wait. We recommend the Southern Omelet and if you build your own omelet, i suggested a chorizo, tomato, onion with your favorite cheese.

Just one of my favorite places to go in town to remind me of being down south. I love the feel of this place when I can't be having breakfast down in Tennessee. The wait staff are very friendly, fast, and definitely work hard.

I really enjoy the breakfast here. I typically get the "Sassy Eggs" if I'm not having waffles/French toast. Their food is really good. Their service is usually pretty fast as well. It's a cute place. The inside in pretty big, and has plenty of seating.
