new-ish, cafeteria-style fried/baked chicken place in south memphis near downtown, off of Crump.. other meats: turkey leg, chitt'lins. I had the fried chicken- spicy but not hot, not crispy skin but the meat was tender. very good but not "the best chicken i've ever had" good. sides of greens and spaghetti were GREAT, however. very generous helping of vegetables (yes spaghetti is a vegetable in the south). only one largish piece of chicken, but enough chicken. Homey-ish decor with old saws, old radios and other antique-ish paraphrenalia on the walls. very friendly service. meal + drink for 8 bucks. Recommended!
