We tried this out when my parents visited and it was a crowd favorite. You really can't go wrong! The sandwiches are amazing and so are the fries. Great food!

Fast, hot, delicious fried chicken sandwich with pimento cheese, fried green tomato, slaw and magic sauce. Too good to be true.
You will have to ignore the restroom doors as they are very soiled. The decor is spartan but when you get your food, all is forgotten.
Minus one star for cleanliness and decor.

As a vegetarian, traveling through the south can make you feel a little overlooked. But this menu puts a vegetarian option front and center. And although I was a bit dubious that a portobello mushroom would make a satisfying sandwich option (the Shake Shack version, for example, feels a bit like an afterthought), this deep-fried pimiento cheese-stuffed version put my tastebuds at ease. Plus peach slaw. Plus Kentucky beer cheese. Don’t Google it; just order it. The sweet potato fries are sugar-crunchy addicting. And the pecan pie in a (compostable) cup, served cold and dense, set a new kind of standard for this dessert for us.

We stopped in based off reviews to try a famous chicken sandwich and it was a delicious sandwich! I do agree with other reviewers that the building is in desperate need of attention. There was definitely an evident leak or damage from a leak present.

This was our spot to grab a bite to eat and be on our way back home from helping our daughter and her boyfriend set up their apartment in Charleston. The food was GREAT! The Smaller added on room looks like it was recently remodeled and looked good. I am hoping that the main eating area will be remodeled next and looking as good. Thank you for the great food experience!
