Great breakfast!

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.

Just visiting Plant City and found this spot to eat. Was surprised to see it was a country style buffett. All the food was like homestyle cooking. 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

The telling comment is what I said to my sweetie- everything I put on my plate would have called for seconds! There are over 75 selections to be made at the salad bar, hot food, entrees, desserts etc. The place is immaculately clean, with great friendly service. Miss Virginia proclaimed the fried chicken absolutely delicious. Salads are great. Yours truly... More

This place is best frequented by people who want lots of overcooked food, fattening and not very nutritious or tasty, but at an all you can eat, cheap price. NOT ever going back. At least they have a nice policy for requesting that everyone eat all that they take and don't just waste food.

I have been here a couple times before for the breakfast buffet and came here yesterday morning for the buffet. I can't believe I haven't reviewed this place before! If you are passing through Plant City near Thonotosassa Rd. (Exit 19) and I-4 and have a hankerin' for breakfast, I highly recommend Buddy Freddy's! The breakfast buffet has something for... More

Told it was one of the best in the area, not the day I was there. For the cost the food was very poor. The broasted chicken was tasteless, deep fried shrimp was hard and cold. The shrimp sauce I had to put into a soup bowl. The ham looked like shoe leather and tasted worse than what it looked... More

The selections were amazing from Country fried steak, fried catfish, biscuits and gravy, and the fluffiest scrambled eggs ever!~ We just the day before paid $20. each for a buffet at a 5 star resort that could not even compare to...
