A Must Eat Place

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.

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

We love this place, it's a bit expensive, but the people here are so nice. Best fried chicken, the Brunswick stew is great as well. Always nice to meet new people, they sit you at a large table and you usually get seated with another group of people. Usually really sweet people that we get sat with but some times... More

Buckners is a family restaurant where you pay when you enter, then are taken to a table where the food is brought to you. Best fried chicken in Georgia, maby in the South, also have bbq and lots of home cooked vegtables. All you can eat for the price. They will continue to bring you food if you want more.... More

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
