As most other reviewers, we found this place while heading out to the Interstate and thought, why not? Well, that turns out to be a bad decision on our part. Like many reviews before us, I had a real issue with the dated and dirty décor, ripped seats, pealing wallpaper, bizarre unknown smells, and... read more

After the hype and ratings for Bogeys we got off the interstate for lunch and found it closed for renovations we stopped at McClains Family Steak House instead. This is really a big food bar place and if you like that sort of thing you can ignore my review. We ordered the ribeye steak special, medium rare and a hamburger... More

We stopped to eat on a road trip. The buffet looked pretty good so we stayed. My husband had the buffet. Most of it was okay, nothing special, but his dinner roll was so hard he couldn't pull it apart. I ordered a baked potato which was dry and a sweet potato that was so overcooked it was hard to...

The Buffet will cause you to over eat. I'm still paying for it an hour later. Dad liked the grits. My wife liked the meat balls so much she went back for more. Mom liked them too. I liked the hush puppies, fried chicken, and red beans and rice the best. They have large scale model airplanes hanging overhead that... More

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.
