A lot of good food for the price

Buddy Freddy's is a good experience for any meal of the day. The food is fresh and you certainly have a great variety to choose from. The staff is friendly and hospitable.

It's Southern cooking. Lot's of fried food, lots of gravy, good amounts of salt. It's delicious but not particularly healthy. The servers are friendly and quick to help you out if you need anything. Show up hungry.

Waitress was quite kid friendly as was the entire staff. Kids are 6,9 and 11 and they enjoyed being treated respectfully as kiddos. The prices are good - we had the buffet for breakfast and so was the food. Definitely would recommend this

You either have a good visit or a horrible depending on the server you encounter. Food is good for the most part could sometimes be yucky again just a hit or miss kind of place...

caught them playing a bait and switch game with their coupons. we had discount coupon for dinner, buy one get one. we asked the hostess are you on Dinner time. She said yes. I would say dinner/lunch was average, not special. when they brought the bill we noticed they had not charged for one of our drinks. My husband showed... More

We had been there years ago and didn't really like it but thought sometimes things improve or it was just an off day when we were there first. So we tried it again about a year ago still kind of dirty ,food not great, service not very good but the greeters were friendly. I really have no need to go... More

HUNGRY!! this is the place to go and have so many choices. Everything is ready and waiting. this place is not as busy as Fred's and the food is just as good. If you go for breakfast at the right time, you may just get the lunch items being brought out. You definitely wont leave hungry

This restaurant is a southern's dream. Everything here is delicious. I really recommend the fried chicken and the corn bread. The bread pudding and cobbler was also delicious. The servers were friendly and fast and my glass was never empty. An all you can eat buffet with fresh southern cooking for less than $12 with drink included cannot be beat.
