thumbnail for Eatonville I absolutely love this place! The honey cornbread muffins are a great appetizer (FYI the muffins have actual pieces of corn in them). The southern fried chicken with the macaroni and cheese for an entree is fantastic! The chicken is not too spicy however there is a hint of spice and the macaroni and cheese is robust with flavor. The wait staff is friendly and this is a nice alternative to Marvins which is right around the corner or Bus Boys and Poets which is across the street.
