A Must

Great place, great food. Definitely will go again. If family style eating is not as bad as it seems. Had very friendly people at our table.

If you are looking for the best in great southern family style cooking, look no further. Buckner's has it. The atmosphere is one of lots of families sitting around tables with lazy susans in the center and everyone helps themselves. I try to go there at least once or twice a year when in the neighborhood and I have never... More

Love this family style dinning. One price for all you can eat county cooking, served just like Grandma's table. They bring food out and put it on a lazy susan in the center of your table that you could possible share with other folks. And as long as you keep eating they keep bringing. I loved the fried chicken and... More

We have been to this place twice and loved it. It is a sweet family Christian restaurant(don't worry they won't eat you or try to convert you) where you are seated with whomever you happen to be standing in line with and share a table with a big lazy-susan with delicious country cooking under florescent lights and on vinyl flooring,but...

If you are within 30 miles of this place for any reason and longing for real down-home cooking, just go. The concept of sitting at a big old table with a lazy-susan being refilled over and over would be just that - a concept - if it weren't for the food being so yummy. The staff is wonderfully friendly and... More

This place is, hands down, the best country cooking destination in middle Georgia. Get there early as it fills up pretty fast but the anticipation of finally getting to go back and sample southern delicacies like fried chicken, green beans, roast beef, creamed corn, etc is well worth the wait. Did I mention the peach cobbler. Save room...trust me on... More

They know how to put the feed on! Southern style home cooking at its best. Large round table with plenty of room for a large family to sit together, along with a lazy Susan in the middle. Been stopping here for years and will continue to stop while passing through. Excellent service!

Good reviews. Food is awful. BBQ had hunks of fat and rawhide. Slaw is watery as is the Brunswick Stew. Lazy Suzanne is too full of drink and will knock over your drink, if you do not watch it. Waitress was on cell phone serving. Why people like it? No idea. Maybe they like quantity not quality. If you want... More

Awesome fried chicken. The veggies are so fresh. Love the experience of the lazy Susan's that adorn each table.

Buckner's has the best fried chicken I've ever had. Their menu is simple, and served family style. They serve 2 meats, and several vegetables, and will refill the dishes as they empty. They only offer 1 dessert, peach cobbler. However, they have gotten more and more expensive the last couple of years, and with my family of 5, we can... More
