Southern cooking, come hungry

Ok, they have some of the best fried chicken I've ever had, all white meat. The huge round tables with a lazy-Susan that's loaded up with 3-4 meats, 5-6 sides and a dessert is truly family style at its best. They service is prompt, the restaurant is clean and the you won't leave hungry. It's a... read more

Along with the Blue Willow in Social Circle, the best fried chicken in Georgia. The sides are also very good, especially the fresh baked rolls. Bring your fried chicken appetite, you won't be disappointed.

This is a family run restaurant. Food is served on large tables with a lazy-susan spinner in the middle. You may be seated with others, everyone is friendly. The food is brought out in bowls and refilled as soon as one empties. There is usually 2 or 3 meats, lots of vegetables, peach cobbler, cole slaw, etc, etc. Worth the... More

The atmosphere is perfect for families or a day out with friends. The wait wasn't long. The waitress was very friendly. The food was served quickly and was hot when it arrived. When we ran out of an item, it was quickly replaced. The fried chicken was moist. The BBQ was very delicious. I usually don't eat stewed tomatoes but... More

Love the friendly staff and the atmosphere!! The food is great! Love the fried chicken and coleslaw. This was the first time we had the ribs they were good. The pulled pork was delicious and the peach cobbler really great.

This is an all you can eat family style kinda place except they bring your food and sit it on a giant lazy Suzie in the middle of the table. Great food, great experience but it's kind of pricey for what type of food they are serving! It's worth a try at least once if for no other reason that... More

Sunday lunch- fried chicken, roast beef, mashed potatoes, cole slaw, cream corn, green beans, butter beans, stewed tomatoes, rolls, corn bread, peach cobbler and sweet tea! Mmmmmm! Just like grandma used to make (maybe better!). Family style meal that will leave you wondering how will you be able to walk out! Don't miss this place if you're anywhere near!

This is an all-you-can-family style place where the food is served in bowls on a lazy Susan. The fried chicken was all white meat and it was really good. But the rest of the meal was so-so. OK the green beans were above average also. It's the place to be if you're really hungry. It's also a place that you'll... More

Buckner's is a favorite for many folks and for good reason. This is a place where you pay as you come in the door, and then you are seated at a large round table (maybe seated with folks you don't know) and that table will have a giant lazy susan in the middle of it. The food is brought out... More

My family and I recently had lunch at Buckner's. The food was southern at its best. The fried chicken was lightly breaded, and perfect. Ou family certainly enjoyed the refills that kept coming. There were nine of us and it seemed as if everyone's favorite vegetable was served. You guessed it, we all have a different vegetable that is our... More
