Great place to stop off of I-75 about 60 miles outside of Atlanta at exit #201. Open Thursday-Sunday for lunch and dinner. Best fried chicken you will ever taste outside of your grandmother's kitchen. Served all you can eat family style with a lazy-Susan in the center of each table. Fresh vegetables and peach cobbler and drink included in price.... More

Buckner's is a very popular family restaurant just west of I-75's Exit 201 and a short distance down Bucksnort Road on the right. I'd call ahead to see how long the wait is to get in, 770.775.6150. You'll be seated with other people at a big round table with a Lazy Susan in the middle loaded with probably fried chicken,... More

Good food. Fast, friendly service. Food is served family style on a large lazy susan. Servers are quick to refill anything that runs out.

I was so captivated by the food at Buckner's that I decided to write a little song; If you want a meal that is the real deal, with chicken's straight from the barn and veggies growing from the farm. Buckner's is the place and a family with a friendly face; so come on down and stick around to eat some... More

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.
