The restaurant is open Monday through Friday and is closed on holidays. It takes no reservations, no credit cards, and no checks, and there are no beverages other than water, sweet tea, or unsweetened tea. They do not advertise and the only sign is a small wooden plaque outside the door.
To experience this rare and interesting treat, make sure you are in line by 10:45am—when the "quota" for the day is reached, a "full" sign is put up and that is IT for the day.
Seating is at large communal tables. The food is "low-country," with hearty fried chicken, sweet potato soufflé, cobbler, etc. The dishes keep passing and refilling.
Having conversations with complete strangers sitting at your table is part of the experience. A member of the Wilkes family usually comes by to inquire on needs and is willing to answer questions about the history of the establishment.
Upon finishing, you are expected to take your utensils and plate to the kitchen and then pay at the register, cash only. There is so much fun and food for a mere $14 per person!
