Stopped here on a weekend with thoughts of trying the weekend specials - chitterlings, oxtails, gumbo, and/or pigs feet. However, none of these were available.

Maybe I should have cut my losses and left then, but I stayed to order a fried chicken lunch, $7.99. This consisted of two dried-out and underseasoned drumsticks. My first choice of sides, mac and cheese, wasn't available either, and I settled for a spoonful each of greens and some red beans. The menu notes that no lard is used in the food, and all three items suffered for this.

What was worth noting was the cornbread which accompanied the lunch. Baked in a loaf pan and served as an inch thick slice, it was incredibly dense, moist and fairly sweet. Sort of a pound cake made with cornmeal. I also liked the peach cobbler, $4.25, weekends only. While the filling was made with canned peaches, they were spiced up and buttery rich. The lattice-work crust was a sweet and very tender dough that melted in the mouth.

Can't say I liked the cooking here, but the baked goods showed some magic.

Ms. T's took over the spot in front of the driving range when Terry's moved further south.
