Excellent food. First time here. Delicious ribs and catfish. The apple dumpling dessert was yummy. We usually don't do dessert, but had to try it when we saw the ladies next to us having it. Excellent presentation. Was truly home made.
The service was great. The hostess was very charming and friendly.

Had the Best Meal on Beale which consist of their BBQ Ribs (slow cooked and meat falls right off of the bone), Deep Fried Catfish (crispy and flavorful), fries, beans and slaw. The service is exceptional. If in Memphis, you've got to stop by this place.
