Family Place

It's no fine dining, and not McDonalds, but is largely self-service. The place is clean, the food average family style. To me this place falls between the chairs, and I have not been back although I live within a few miles..

This restaurant has been here for years. It is your old-fashioned southern cooking buffet type meal. If this is what you're looking for you will definitely enjoy this restaurant. Just be sure you're hungry, there are lots of choices!

This buffet always puts a smile on our faces. The wife always looks forward to their Strawberry Shortcake. I love their fried chicken. The pork sausage was particularly good this time. Clean, big bathrooms, smiling staff and customers; all led to a wonderful dining experience in Plant City.

Salad was excellent. Beef, meatloaf, fish, chicken, a wide variety of veggies. Strawberry shortcake bar. Many deserts (peach cobbler was delicious). It's self-serve other than the server brings drinks, complimentary rolls & cornbread, and complimentary fried green tomatoes. Everything was good - only exception was the cantaloupe had turned. Our server was ridiculous - turned and walked away from someone... More

We went to Buddy Freddys for lunch yesterday and were not disappointed. Typical buffet though, fried chicken, meatloaf, fried fish etc. All items I ate were quite good and hot and they did keep the trays full. Good spot for a decent buffet.

Yes, it's southern cooking--fried chicken, meatloaf, chicken fried steak, greens, green beans, good mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, cheese and bacon mashed potatoes, all that good stuff that you long for. And, there's at least three types of gravy, four if you count the gray that the chicken fried steak was swimming in. You can cool those feelings of guilt... More

We just went there for the breakfast buffet. There were so many choices. You could even get fried chicken! This is definitely a place to bring the men folk. Good service and the place was CLEAN.

Meatloaf, Fried Chicken, Baked chicken, fish, pot roast and even turkey. The side dishes were all homestyle as well. Plus a large salad bar. They also had a strawberry bar. Too cool! Make... More
