Exceptional Service

The buffet restaurant is a good choice when traveling with a group of people with varying tastes. There is plenty to choose from here and everything I tried was tasty. One good thing is that there's no waiting! I like having a selection of ingredients to make a salad, vegetables and fruit along... read more

An oasis on a busy highway. We were on our way to catch a comedy show and stopped in for dinner. The hostess was friendly and helpful. We grabbed our table and were amazed at all of the fresh hot choices there were. The fried chicken was as hot as it could be and there was plenty of it. All... More

I love the variety of foods. They change the food frequently so you don't have to wonder how long it's been there. Plenty of seating and easy to find drinks, condiments etc. Some buffets feel cramped but this is spacious so you are not sitting in someone elses booth.

I am not fond of buffet restaurants, but my 14 year old grandson is. He can easily eat three plates of food and remain very thin. He loves the fried chicken, macaroni and cheese and potatoes. He enjoyed the salad bar (made 2 trips), and of course, the dessert table. This is definitely a place to take children.

This is your typical buffet style place. Prices are fairly priced and the food was good. Service i received was good as well. If your looking for a buffet style meal for lunch, brunch or dinner it doesnt hurt to check it out

We go here about once every six or eight weeks. Hometown had fallen down in our ratings because the meat was dry. But I'm sure they have gotten a new cook in the last couple months because the meat is wonderful. The last time we were there the dessert menu was pretty bad. They do offer non-sugar desserts, but I... More
