- From 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., the staff is quite serious about the food. As a friend said, "This place reminds me of my grandmother's house in Norwood, high ceilings and lots of pictures on the walls in old frames." He added that it smelled a lot like the same. His grandmother ran a boarding house, and there was always something cooking. Pleasant memories. – Fletcher Harvey, AL.com
- "Sometimes the simplest dishes are the best dishes, and this one always hits the spot, especially in the winter," he said, explaining that the restaurant, which is located in the former Ollie's Barbecue building, serves a different soup each week. – Lynn Grisard Fullman, AL.com
