"Opened in another location in 1957 as The Chicken Box, this friendly no-frills restaurant serves home-style Southern food at its best. Fried chicken, no surprisingly, is a specialty, but daily specials include fried trout, smothered pork chops, pig's feet, chicken and dumplings, and other classics. Sides include hush puppies, yams, mac and cheese, and okra with tomatoes. To drink? Sweet tea or lemonade 'by the gallon.'"
