It's just OK

Stopped by with family. Very crowded and service was adequate. Tables weren't being cleaned and people were standing around with no place to sit. Also had to eat half a meal with just a spoon because there were no clean forks or knives. Food was good but not worth the other troubles. Probably won't... read more

Absolutely not what it use to be....The food was nasty. ...Salad bar was room temperature. ..Catfish was cold and rubbery. ...staff was putting food that was dropped on top of the food bar back into serving pans after they picked up trash off the floor and didn't wash their hands......Gross just absolutely NOT the quality it use to be..

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Tennessee. We had to exit and then go about 1/2 mile to turn around to get on the same side of the highway as Browns. The food was the worst we have ever had. Most things had been on the buffet a very long time. The floors were dirty and the... More

With the traffic on I30 bumper to bumper and 20 mph, this was a nice little stop. Plenty of good food and a neat little shop to spend a few minutes looking around in.

Polite staff. Lots of choices on the buffet. Food items prepared well. Dirty plates removed immediately. If you like country cooking and things like black eyed peas, cabbage, fried chicken…you get the picture…you will like this place.

If you can't find something to eat on their 100 feet long buffet you must not be very hungry. Great food for a great price.

If you like Southern country food this is a nice place to stop. Over 100 ft. buffet ranging from salad items, fish, poultry, beef, veggies and desserts. Typical cafeteria food, lots of fried and bacon fat and butter veggies. The chicken and dumplings were pretty good as were the fried livers. Price for the buffet was reasonable during the lunch...

Picked this place because of the billboards and our hunger level. Buffet with just coffee/water is $12 ish and with a drink is $14 ish. There is a senior discount as well. I enjoyed every single item I tried. My favorites were the fried chicken and the cinnamon rolls. The hushpuppies and fried catfish were good too. I thought it... More

The quality continues to go down as the price goes up. Think of Golden Corral but more expensive and super crowded.
