The average wait-time is an hour. As you can see, no one is in a rush. There was a light breeze, and it was just warm enough to not need a sweater. I sat on the porch and watched all ages come and go.
Meals are served family-style, or spoon-style, as it's called. All-you-can-eat. The chicken was outstanding. It had been fried, but wasn't exactly crispy. It seemed steamed. Our other meat was roast beef. Bowls of mashed potatoes and gravy, fresh green beans, coleslaw and cornbread filled the table twice. Warm blackberry cobbler was served with ice cream once. We could have eaten another one. Outstanding!
