A Nice Local Restaurant

We ate here while traveling through. The food was adaquete and filling, the staff was friendly and the price for the food was as expected. The place was full of local folks who all knew each other and the staff.

I visited with friends. The food is primarily Southern with a smattering of very average salads and prepackaged desserts. I know the desserts were from a box because a careless employee left two cobbler tins along with the cardboard lid on a seat next to the ice cream machine. The fried chicken and dressing/stuffing were actually delicious. Everything else I... More

Good home cooking and plenty of it if you opt for the buffet. Especially good on Thursdays which are ribs days.

A down-home family-friendly treasure. We stumbled upon this spot just off I-10 at lunchtime and found a buffet with more than 100 items for just $8. Great food, friendly service...couldn't ask for better.

This restaurant has a huge variety of food, they have a large buffet or you can order from a menu. It is good at any rate, the server was nice as well. The decor is cool, with airplanes hanging from the roof. A good place to stop and eat.

My wife and I have eaten at McLeans twice while traveling across I-10 in west FL, once at lunch and the other at dinner. Actually, there were five adults for dinner. The food is very good for that type fare. There is a huge variety, from soups (broccoli was tasty) to tacos. The fried chicken is excellent. I wish there... More

I've stopped here a few times during my trips across I-10 and enjoyed it very much.Last week I stopped and the waitress said why not join us for Thanksgiving? It never occurred to me, and only living 30 minutes away, it was a possibility. Today we decided to drive up and let them do the cooking. I had no idea... More

We stopped in for lunch today, and bottom line, this is really a buffet place. Sure, it says Steakhouse, but it really isn't, it is a "country cooking buffet" house. Sunday buffet at $9.99, which has all kinds of meats, veggies, salad bar, etc. We didn't choose the buffet, we ordered off the menu ( and to be fair to... More

Large buffet with good selection. Fried fish, shrimp, BBQ ribs, wide variety of vegetables, mac & cheese, rice, large salad bar, cake, pie, cobbler and soft serve ice cream. All just like Mama used make. All for a reasonable price.
