Good country cooking

Went in for lunch and thought the Buffet would have been bigger from the size of the building. But the food was really good. All the ribs on the buffet were great.

We stopped in with a group on Tuesday night. We had been told of this place by some locals who loved it. We were not disappointed, the buffet is not extensive but all of the items were delicious! The ribs were tender and well seasoned, some of the best I have had, the chicken was equally as good and the... More

This place is right up the street from my hotel and I like BBQ. Stopped on a Friday evening for dinner. I had the buffet. Everything was good and the service was great. The ladies kept my tea full. No complaints. Would have no problem going back.

it was pretty good anyway. We both had the buffet -- which served ribs, sausage, fried fish / chicken. I stuck to the fish but my husband said the ribs were great. $35 for both.
