Lost Maples Cafe Review

"A gem. This place is like a time warp back to when you could still buy a home-cooked meal. The breading on the chicken was divine, and the veggies and meat were so juicy. I don't know if it was just me being out in the sun all day, but that seemed like a meal from heaven. Thanks y'all."
