We went out of our way to come here with our family of five. There was food for everyone in this family style restaurant. It had the best chicken and coleslaw I have ever eaten and the service was great. A treasure off the beaten path!!!

If my family passed exit 201, we stop here if they are open (Thursday-Sunday). Buckner's has the best fried chicken in the South, and that is saying something! We also love their Brunswick stew, BBQ, stewed tomatoes, and slaw. Stop here, you will not be disappointed.

I've been eating at Buckner's for over 20 years and have never been disappointed. The actual dining experience is always different - as this is a family style meal with round tables that seat 8 guests and has a huge lazy susan style raised turntable in the middle. Depending on the size of your party, you may be seated with... More

We had been to Buckner's several times before,, but never on Mothers Day, it was very, very busy and extremely crowded. On this subject I'd like to say that the ladies who do the actual work here should get an award of some kind, they seem to know exactly when and where to be to move this much food into... More

We go to Buckner's each year for Mother's Day. The food is always good. There's not many places you can get this quality of food for a buffet for the price.

This is by far one of the best buffet style restaurants out there. The food is always good, the fried chicken great! The best thing is that the buffet is at your table, they bring the food to your large 8 person lazy susan table. A note though, if you plan on going it alone or two or three others,... More

As luck would have it, we stumbled into Buckner’s while on a road-trip heading home; the huge chicken statue out front was a welcoming sign. As we entered the building we quickly discovered the kind of world we were entering—true home cooking and a down-home atmosphere. The over-sized painting of ‘Jesus feeding the hungry crowds’ says it all… we’re not... More

This is pure southern cooking. The chicken was to die for - seasoned perfectly and fresh; fresh corn and green beans were great, pulled pork was yummy, and nothing was greasy! The peach cobbler was the perfect topper for the evening. Tables are family style, with a large lazy susan in the middle to pass dishes around. When one is... More
