Since 1984, the Traylor family has been serving home-cooked food to the locals in the downtown area, in an historic building from the early 1900's. Famous for their chicken and dumplings, burgers, and red beans, rice, and sausage, they serve up daily lunch specials for under $9.00. Grill items include hamburgers, poboys, grilled chicken sandwiches and chef salads. Breakfast is served 'short-order' style until 10am daily. Come see our amazing collection of Coca-cola and railroad memoriabilia!
