We've been there several times. Food is fresh and tasty, especially the blueberry cobbler! Best I've ever had!

Went here on a stopover on the way to Dinosaur World. The breakfast buffet was excellent, with surprisingly fresh food. The buffet included many of the southern breakfast fixings. The staff was very friendly to us, especially to our two year old son. The highlight of the breakfast was the warm cinnamon buns! If driving through, we highly recommend.

Everything was outstanding. The server was right on the mark with the sweet tea. We had a variety of foods from the buffet including field peas, pole... More

Great food and atmosphere! Great for groups and friends. Go there every two months with retired group employees of a local elementary school.

Freds Kitchen has always been a great place to eat with family and friends- they have a buffet which includes comfort foods you would find at home. On the menu- definitely try the strawberry salad !

We had the $9.99 Blue plate special (all the great buffet food you can stack on your plate for one trip). Fried chicken, bbq, ribs, fish, and all the fixings. Food was fresh and delicious. Went back for lunch the next day. Lunch was $7.99 for the same blue plate special. DO NOT MISS this restaurant if you are in... More
