Home cooking like grandma makes! Clean and great selections.

Found this restaurant while driving the highways in Arkansas. A really nice find. Huge place. A big glass bin filled with chocolate, candies, and treats. Oh my --- that will be the first thing that you pass upon entering the restaurant. Amazing...aromas! Then go towards the back to find a big... read more

After hiking Hawksbill Crag & swimming Steel Creek as well as jet skiing the Ouachita Lake for several days, we headed back to Texas. I want to start out on a positive note and say that this place has soft yummy country rolls and the fried green tomatoes had me going back for seconds. They also have some beautiful stained... More

Some items were dry and bland. Got there an hour before closing so I'll give them a pass. Bar was fully stocked though.

Excellent!! The fried green tomatoes were amazing, the best I've ever had! If you're hungry and in the mood for a buffet, this is a must if you're in the area!!!

While the food would not be considered gourmet under any conditions, it is certainly home cooking. The buffet is full and the selection pretty good. I wish the cinnamon roll tasted as good as it looked.

While not the worst restaurant I have eaten at I would never go again. Food was at best average and some of it just poor, hot dishes warm at best and cold stuff warm. Biggest issue however was just not clean. Found an ant in one dish and bathrooms filled with flies and absolutely filthy! Just avoid if possible not... More

This place has been for a long time, for good reason. It knows it's core customers and it plays to what they want and like. More power to them. That being said it's sort of a hit and miss affair in my opinion. A good deal of it is "cooking by Sysco" I suspect. Yes, there is a 100 ft... More

Stay away if you don't like fried food. Attentive service. Food tasty but lacking variety for the health conscious. Good Southern style grandma cooking.
