Miss Loretta was super great and so friendly to us. The Food was great! We both tried a specialty burger with crinkle cut fries, the Homemade Mac & Cheese, coke with crushed ice. then bought 3 bags of her homemade peanut brittle and ordered a specialty ice cream to take home. I was all delicious!! we will be frequent visitors at this place..
