The Fried Green Tomatoes and the Fried Chicken are considered house specialties and always on the menu. The Fried Green Tomatoes are stuffed with goat cheese and served with a red pepper coulis. The Buttermilk Fried Chicken is fresh chicken sourced from Springer Mountain Farms and is served with garlic collard greens, smashed red bliss potatoes along with honey thyme jus.
