I have been going to Buchner's for years. I can honestly say that I have never had anything but a great meal there. The fried chicken is the best I have ever had. I don't like cole slaw or stewed tomatoes, but I like theirs!!! The creamed corn is awesome, the baby back ribs are amazing.....it goes on and on!!!... More

This is a great place to take the whole family. They can seat maybe 8 to10 people at the big round lazy-susan tables with constantly filled bowls of vegetables, coleslaw, meats, breads and a dessert. Condiments and a pitcher of iced tea fill the center. Whenever you're ready for seconds or more just turn the lazy-susan to your favorite dishes.... More

This place is awesome!!! Been here a few times, and I will keep going back! My family even drove over an hour just to eat here. The chicken is lightly breaded, and it full of flavor! Chicken is nice and moist on the inside, and a slight crisp on the outside. The side dishes are pretty darn good as well!... More

Excellent food! Loved the down home family style accommodations. Very unique! Highly recommend! Great places for large groups. Love that "recycled teenagers" get a discount. (60+)

Great family style venue. First time here and we really enjoyed it. Atmosphere service and food were wonderful. If you like down home cooking in a family-style atmosphere, this is the place!

We try to eat at Buckner's if we are in the area. Always great food, served family style via a lazy Susan in the center of the table. They know what they are doing and do it just right!

A 2500 calorie feast I'm sure. So good. Lightly fried chicken, BBQ, delicious stewed tomatoes, green beans, lima beans, potatoes, creamed corn, slaw, peach cobbler, rolls, corn bread. Family style lazy Susan dining. Always comforting. I guess I'll start over on my diet in the morning.

This is the best food I have ever had. considering this is an extremely busy establishment. We were seated very quickly, even requesting a table in a place where we would not be with or surrounded by a large amount of people (you are seated w other people @ a table of 8). I have anxiety when surrounded and I... More
