I go here at least once a week. Usually go thru the drivethru. They don't skimp on the serving size, however, it is cafeteria style if you prefer to serve yourself & wanna get a piece of something special like a slice of tomato, onion or fat back. Large & spacious inside but they are usually very busy. They close... More

Outstanding southern cooking! Enjoyed a bunch of vegetables tonight. This is a local favorite and the food is always good. Service is top-notch!

Interesting place, particularly for a boy that grew up in NYC. Cafeteria style where you pay for what you take. Food is good if you love everything fried, but hey this is the south. Love the shrimp, hush puppies and chicken tenders. Will try the catfish next time. A must try in Gainesville.. BTW.. Not much atmosphere, but many locals... More

This is a home town restaurant that serves the best home cooked meals in town. my wife and I frequent longstreet often. Their breakfest's are great. It is a serve yourself type affair that we like very much. The owners have run longstreet as a family resturant for many years so the atmosphere is great. Look forward to many more... More

Southern food, just like grandma made. However, depending on your choices, the price can be a tad bit high.

I've been eating lunch at Longstreet for as many years as I can remember! If you want a good "meat-and-three" type place, you cannot go wrong here. You get a tray and walk through the line cafeteria-style. The quality is consistent and you can always depend on getting good, southern home cooking, comfort food like macaroni and cheese, greens, fried... More

Cafeteria/buffet style...Southern cooking at it's best but you can find healthy options too. There's a great salad bar with grilled chicken on the salad bar. The fried chicken, salmon patties and vegetables are just like Mama makes!

Low quality food that is pricey; almost 20$ for two for a simple lunch. Don't know why everyone gives it such good reviews. Will not go back again
