Pleasant dinner

A very friendly restaurant. You sit with others and you take your food from a huge lazy susan. The choices are great tasting chicken, veggies, ham and a dessert. Eat as much as you like. It is all delicious.

I found this restaurant about 25 years ago, and it has been on my "must visit" list since, when travelling through Jackson. What used to be a wonderful home cooked meal with endearing service, has dwindled to "better than Golden Corral" - but still with quality service and genuinely kind staff. The low down: This visit featured instant mashed potatoes,... More

The chicken was nice and tender but I wouldn't call it Fried chicken. And they say everything made from scratch but didn't smell or taste like . Golden corral is way better . The people was really friendly that's a plus for the restaurant.

All the chicken served is white meat and it is fried to perfection. I went there twice recently and the other meat served is either ham or country fried steak. They also were very good. All the vegetables including the cream style shoe peg corn and the stewed tomatoes were not just served home style but tasted homemade. If you... More

Went to Forsyth, Ga for lunch, but when we got there the place was closed for the holiday. Decided to stop at Buckners on the way back. Very friendly cashier and hostess and servers. Made sure the dishes were never empty. The fried chicken and barbecue pork were delicious and fresh and were given to us in very small portions.... More

Love the food, love sitting with folks and sharing the table with some really great food. My wife introduced me to the old school family restaurant off I-75 just North of Macon Ga exit 201 a few years back and we stop to enjoy a great meal of the best friend chicken, slaw, cream corn, stewed tomatoes, taters, beans and...

We try to stop her whenever we are traveling. Our kids love it! There is always plenty to eat, the food is consistently delicious. You sit at a big table with a lazy susan in the middle. There is a two meats, rolls, peach cobbler, and a plethora of vegetables on the lazy susan. You are given a choice of... More

I'm not a big fan of home-style food usually; however, Buckner's never gets old. It's not cheap but you get more than you pay for in quality and quantity. Come hungry!

I have been eating at Buckner's for a long time, but this is my first review of the restaurant. It always reminds me of my southern aunts cooking in my grandma's kitchen. The food reminds me of a different era when we ate food because it tasted good and not for the calorie count. The chicken is juicy, tender, and... More

Buckners Restaurant is a fun place to go with a group,since the tables seat 8 people.If your party is smaller,you might have to share with strangers. That is a negative as far as I am concerned ,but it might not be to some. The place is clean and bright,just nothing fancy.The food is simple as well, just country cooking. It's... More
