Home style buffet

Good southern cooking at real affordable prices. Lots of locals come here so food must be good. Plentiful buffet with friendly staff keep us coming back every time we're on LaGrange.

The food is good here if you like southern cooking, I just think they need more of a variety especially with meats. Mostly chicken which is very good, just would like other meats to choose from.

There is a good variety of food and the price is right. We live about 40 miles away and travel there every couple of months. I like food. I'm a fat man. If you like Southern cooking at a real low price.

This was recommended my some of the locals so we decided to give it a try. My first reaction was "do I have a stamp of New York on my forehead?", although the cashier and wait staff was very polite the locals really weren't. This was a very average buffet and it is my opinion that certain items on a... More

I am not a "trendy-foodie" ... I enjoy home-style cooking while I travel on business. For a place that appears to specialize in "home style" and "comfort food", the place did not disappoint. A good test was how the place prepared chicken livers - done but not dried out. The fried chicken passed the same test. Some of the veggies... More

To be honest, what drew us to the restaurant was the promise of hot wings on Wednesday. Unfortunately, either my uncle was mistaken, or the usual Wednesday menu didn't happen this Wednesday. Apart from that disappointment, there really wasn't much to commend this place except that where was plenty to eat. But most of the food wasn't all that appetizing.... More

My wife and I really enjoyed our meal at the Fried Tomato Buffet. The collard greens were exceptionally good. My wife said if we lived in LaGrange she would never cook.

It really seems this part of the country is all about buffets. They serve more or less the same foods. It comes down to the atmosphere and the care they take with the food. This place can get crowded and it's really not all that comfortable. It's almost always busy and that's because they do a pretty good job on... More

Lots to choose from, but the food was just ehh. Soul food and southern comfort foods in large supply, but more bland than inspiring in the flavor department. The staff were all very kind and helpful.

The food is pretty good, especially the vegetables! The cabbage, butter beans, peas, etc are always good. The salad bar is also really good, except for the iceberg lettuce. Great deal at $8 a person including drink
