Bad, just really bad. There is no art to the fried food at this kitschy roadside cafe. The building and decor look promising, but the food disappoints.

The fried beer-battered shrimp are small, tough, and taste like overused cooking oil. I had to scrape the batter off so I could eat these rubbery crustaceans. Although the mayonnaise-based slaw was fine, the collards were too bitter. They had not used any ham to flavor the pot liquor. I tried to eat a piece of apple pie to console myself, yet the bottom crust was raw and the tart apples were as undercooked as the pie crust. Truly a disappointing meal.

If you are headed north on US-17 from Conway, remember to eat before you pass the city limits!

One of the joys of southern cafe dining: an all-vegetable plate. Clockwise from left, this one holds fried green tomatoes, sweet potato casserole, mac 'n' cheese, and collard greens.

As you enter you see the old grocery shelves, still stocked with supplies. If you look very closely in the lower right of the picture, you see a stash of the locally-liked soda, Cheerwine.

Frying seafood is a fine art here along the coast of South Carolina.

Chocolate cake with peanut butter icing: this was the last piece, saved for us by the blessed waitress.
