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

We were there on a Thursday at 6:30PM and we were lucky to get a table right away. If we had arrived 15 minutes later there would have been a wait. This place is popular with the locals, and for good reason. All the food was good and plenty of options from which to choose. The real standouts during our... More

Our hotel recommend this place to us and we were a little skeptical at first. We went in and checked it out and decided to go for it. OH MY...it was GREAT! They had some awesome collard greens, green beans, and beef tips. The price was even more unbelievable...cheap! Our server was so friendly and genuine. Next time we are... More

Looking for a place to grab a bite and Siri found this place. Yelp reviews looked interesting so we tried it. Very good Siri! The first good sign was a packed parking lot. This is a down home country cooking buffet and it is the best I have had in a while. Meatloaf, chicken, chicken livers, mac and cheese, green... More

What I don't like is quickly forgotten once I start eating the outstanding food. I don't like the feeling of a crowded atmosphere, but that is the "feeling" of the way it is laid out. what I do like is the casual neighborhood feeling that you get - all the farmers coming in to town for lunch, parents feeling comfortable...

I spend Thanksgiving at Calloway Gardens every other year and usually I eat my meals in that area. I went to LaGrange to look at an attraction there and suddenly got very hungry. I was craving home cooked vegetables and was tired of meat and potato meals. I swear, I didn't know where I was going. I just started driving... More

Mom and Pop operation. Excellent food and service. When you walk in the door the receptionist/cashier welcomes you with Southern hospitality. Waitresses are friendly and very accommodating... waiting on you hand and foot. There was a good variety of foods offered and everything was 'so good.'
