BEST CHICKEN AROUND

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

We enjoy visiting Buckner's because their food tastes like home made without all the work. It is served family style with a huge Lazy Susan in the middle of the round table that seats eight. You can visit with the people near you or just eat. The servers are friendly and happy to refill the bowls as needed or sooner... More

Buckner's is open only Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It is family style with large round tables with a lazy susan that is loaded with 2 meats, vegetables, cornbread, rolls and a desert. The fried chicken is all white meat in a wonderful crust. It is the best fried chicken I have ever eaten since I moved South 34 years... More

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 great value if you... 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
